Do they like the show that is based on their lives?
Rumors say that the British royal family did not care for ‘The Crown’, a Netflix-show about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. But according to an expert, the royal family actually likes to watch the popular show that is based on their lives.
Royals and The Crown
According to Ken Wharfe, the previous bodyguard of princess Diana and writer of the book ‘Diana – Closely Guarded Secret’, the royals actually like the popular Netflix show. Wharfe told OK!: “The royals love that stuff. They will watch it and they have no fear of that. They’re watching it to see how true it is or how untrue it is.” When it comes to Emma Corrin’s portrayal of Diana, her previous bodyguard said: “[it] was brilliant. There wasn’t a great physical likeness, but she mastered the mannerisms, her walk and her speech. But one thing’s for certain, Diana didn’t roller skate around Buckingham Palace.”
The royal family watches ‘The Crown’
And there are more family members who have admitted that they watch the show. The countess of Wessex, Sophie Rhys-Jones, introduced the late Queen Elizabeth to the show. It is said that the Queen watched the show on a projector, every Sunday night. According to E! News, King Charles III allegedly introduced himself to Scottish Labour leader Anas Sawar with the words: “Hello, nice to meet you all. I’m nowhere near how they portray me on Netflix.” When Prince Harry appeared on James Corden’s The Late Late Show, the Duke of Sussex admitted that he has seen some episodes. He told Cordon that the show gives a little inside in royal life and “What that lifestyle, what the pressures of putting duty and service above family and everything else, what can come from that.”
Princess Eugenie said she felt proud to watch the show. According to Daily Mail, she allegedly said: “It is filmed beautifully. The music is wonderful, the story is beautiful. You feel very proud to watch it. I can’t speak for everyone but that’s how I felt when I watched it.”
