Buckingham Palace is doing everything possible to safeguard the monarch’s reputation.
The Crown’s fifth season will premiere on Netflix on November 9th, with all ten episodes available simultaneously. Fans of the series have been anticipating the installment since the series hinted at one of its most contentious parts yet, with the next season focusing on King Charles III and Princess Diana’s marriage.
The Telegraph reported that with the trailer’s release over the weekend, Buckingham Palace launched a massive effort to protect the monarch’s reputation once the “all-out war” of his marriage to the late Princess of Wales is finally dramatized.
According to the monarch’s friend, the drama is exploitative, who accuses Netflix of having “no qualms about mangling people’s reputations.”
The source added:
“What people forget is that there are real human beings and real lives at the heart of this.”
The aforementioned damage control has not yet been made public, but the palace has promised to protect King Charles at all costs.
The series alarmed the palace because it addresses events from the 1990s.
According to reports, it will chronicle John Major’s presidency and Tony Blair’s life as his successor. It would also include the monarch’s interview with Jonathan Dimbleby and the time he admitted to Camilla – now the Queen Consort – that he cheated on Princess Diana.
Meanwhile, the sixth and final season of “The Crown” will reportedly dramatize Princess Diana’s death.
In this regard, the royal family is preparing to deal with a new threat to the monarchy in show business.
According to columnist Clemmie Moodie, the Netflix series “The Crown” is expected to eventually portray the King “as a sadistic, cheating monster.”
When season 2 of “The Crown” showed King Charles III had a bad time at Gordonstoun, a Scottish public school, it got on the nerves of royal members, including Queen Elizabeth II. The incident claimed that the other students bullied King Charles III, and Prince Philip was held responsible.
The late monarch reportedly frowned at the depiction, and the “misinformation” spread from there.
