"The Crown": How dangerous will it be for King Charles?

The new season of "The Crown" isn't even here yet, but it's already making headlines. The background is fears that the series could affect the reputation of the new King Charles III. (73) harm. Especially now that he can obviously look forward to good popularity ratings. However, according to The Sun, the new episodes of The Crown will reportedly unearth "every painful detail" of Charles's marriage to the late Princess Diana (1961-1997).

The season five episodes, which air November 9, will "discuss some of the most intimate aspects" of the broken marriage in the early 1990s. The then Prince of Wales was allegedly portrayed as "petty, cold and insidious". Such allegations were made when season four was released two years ago. The fictional TV show sees Charles repeatedly breaking out of his marriage to Diana and fleeing to his mistress Camilla Parker Bowles...

Charles and Diana, who married in 1981, separated in 1992 and divorced in 1996. Lady Di died in a car accident a year later. In 2005, Charles married Camilla Parker Bowles (75), who has been king's consort since his accession to the throne.

A TV insider said of the new season of The Crown, according to The Sun: "It could not have come at a more delicate time for the new king and his royal consort, especially as they are so popular with the public." "There is a feeling," the source said, "that Netflix is ​​exploiting events that happened 30 to 40 years ago," but opening up old wounds for those involved. "The worst thing for the royals is that millions of people around the world are watching this series and it's seen less as fiction and more as a documentary." And all this right between the death of Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022) on September 8th and the coronation of King Charles III. on May 6th next year...

The new heir to the throne Prince William (40) could also be upset about "The Crown", speculates "The Sun". Because Charles and Diana's two children, William and his brother Prince Harry (38), will probably also get attention in the series. Do the fictional scenes show how the two children get caught between the fronts in the marital dispute?

The fifth season of "The Crown" is about the 1990s in the British royal family, it is said to end with the accidental deaths of Princess Diana (1961-1997) and Dodi Al-Fayed (1955-1997) on August 31, 1997. A sixth and final season of the show - which has retold the life of Queen Elizabeth II since 1947 - has been commissioned by Netflix, and is rumored to end in 2002 or 2005.
