"The Crown": "Rough and insensitive" - ​​criticism is becoming more massive

The fifth season of the Netflix series "The Crown" starts on November 9th and the criticism of the depictions there is getting more massive every day. Now a real royal insider has spoken: William Shawcross (76), the official biographer of Queen Mum (1900-2002), attacks Peter Morgan (59), the author of "The Crown" in the "Daily Mail". ": "Nothing is sacred to him." Morgan made his contempt for the late Queen very clear.

It is a "disgusting series" that lies to the public and causes "incredible damage" to the royal family. The representations there are "rough, cruel and completely insensitive". Most recently, pictures were published that were secretly shot from the shooting at a disused air force base. It shows the mock funeral procession after the death of Princess Diana (1961-1997). As in reality, the grieving sons Prince William (40) and Prince Harry (38) - then 15 and 12 years old - are shown behind the coffin, as they are at the side of their father, today's King Charles III. (73), run with a singed head.

However, filming is not yet complete. These are to be completed in Paris in the next few days. Even these non-existent scenes already caused resentment. Diana's accidental death is re-enacted in the French capital. But how exactly? With explicit images? A Netflix spokesman gave the all-clear: The exact moment of the accident will not be shown.

The main criticism of the series is the smooth transitions between reality and fiction. The authors do not take it upon themselves to create a historical series. The framework and the characters are historically documented, but there is definitely room for fiction and drama, so the tenor. But: Critics complain that the viewers get the impression that what was shown happened like that. Before that, at least a text board should warn, which was switched before the trailer. It reads: "This true event-inspired drama series tells the fictional story of Queen Elizabeth II and portrays the political and personal ups and downs of her reign."
