Netflix’s The Crown has already added a disclaimer following criticism the show confuses the truth with fiction.
“Inspired by real events, this fictional dramatization tells the story of Queen Elizabeth II and the political and personal events that shaped her reign,” the disclaimer reads.
The news comes as Judi Dench and more slammed the streaming giant as “cruelly unjust” in its account of the royal family.
This season may be the most concerning for the firm as it follows the breakdown of a then Prince Charles’ marriage to Princess Diana.
Plot points will likely include Charles’ affair with Camilla and Princess Diana’s explosive Panoramainterview as well, in which she told journalist Martin Bashir: “There were three of us in this marriage.”
The season couldn’t come at a worse time for the firm, as support for the monarchy is at an all-time low, as King Charles and Queen Camilla step into their new roles following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
In the video above, we look at plot points, themes and behind-the-scene tidbits revealing why the royal family may be more concerned than ever about The Crown.
Will the new season uncover the firm’s deepest, darkest secrets?
“I won’t go quietly; I’ll battle ’til the end,” Diana (Elizabeth Debicki) says in the trailer for season five.
