Netflix's Royal Drama Opts for a Different Narrative
The final season of Netflix's hit series "The Crown" has chosen to exclude Prince Harry's controversial claims about Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, from its storyline.
The first half of the concluding series of this royal drama will premiere on November 16, 2023, followed by the second set of episodes on December 14, 2023.
The series, known for its dramatic portrayal of the British royal family, will focus heavily on Queen Elizabeth II in its final season. The timeline extends up until the wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla in 2005.
In his autobiography "Spare," Prince Harry alleges that Camilla’s spin doctor had metaphorically thrown him "right under the bus".
He accuses her of cooperating with journalists who had evidence of his drug use. Harry further insinuates that Camilla played a strategic "long game" to marry his father and secure the crown.
Despite these claims, Olivia Williams, who is set to portray Camilla in the sixth series of "The Crown", asserts that the show's creator, Peter Morgan, has chosen to depict a different side of the Duchess.
Williams maintains that Camilla was not power-hungry, but rather sought acceptance and approval for Charles from his family.
In other recent news, Prince Harry has refuted allegations that he declined an invitation to King Charles's 75th birthday celebration.
A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex responded, "In response to UK media headlines, there has been no contact regarding an invitation to His Majesty’s upcoming birthday. It is disappointing the Sunday Times has misreported this story."
