“It’s a wonderful fiction, but like with other television productions, Netflix should be clear from the start that it is exactly that and nothing else,” Oliver Dowden told Deadline magazine.
Princess Diana’s brother Charles Spencer said in a recent interview with “ITV” that the series should have such a warning stating that it is inspired by real events – but that it is a fiction. “Because then everyone would understand [a série] It’s a drama. “
Each season of “The Crown” spanned several years and relevant events in the history of the United Kingdom during the reign of Isabel II, as well as relationships between members of the monarchy and various governments.
