UK Government Wants Netflix To Label The Crown As Fiction

UK Government Wants Netflix To Label The Crown As Fiction

Viewers have once again been lapping up the latest season of The Crown and been shocked by all the things that have happened behind closed doors with the British Royal Family.

While the Netflix series has ensured it has portrayed Queen Elizabeth II's life and her family as accurately as possible, there are some creative liberties taken for conversations that literally happened behind closed doors.

But because season four of The Crown is particularly juicy in regards to everything the show has done on Prince Charles and Princess Diana's romance, there are calls for the series to be labelled 'fiction'.

The UK government is spearheading the campaign for Netflix to introduce a disclaimer at the beginning of each episode.

The UK Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden has told the Daily Mail: "It's a beautifully produced work of fiction, so as with other TV productions, Netflix should be very clear at the beginning it is just that.

"Without this, I fear a generation of viewers who did not live through these events may mistake fiction for fact."

Variety reports Dowden is preparing to submit an official request for Netflix to introduce the disclaimer, however the streaming service hasn't yet responded.

This call is also supported by Princess Diana's brother, Charles Spencer, who is worried that everyone will assume that everything in the show is 100 per cent real.

In an interview with ITV, Charles said a disclaimer would go a decent way in convincing audiences to do some extra reading into some parts of what really happened.

"It would help The Crown an enormous amount if at the beginning of each episode it stated that, 'This isn't true but is based around some real events,'" Spencer said. "Because then everyone would understand it's drama for drama's sake."

Season four of the series has shifted its attention from Olivia Coleman's portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II and has zeroed in on Prince Charles (played by Josh O'Connor) and Princess Diana (Emma Corrin).

It follows how they met, how she dazzled everyone in the Royal Family and how they pressured Charles into marrying her before he was ready. It also revelled in how Charles was still allegedly fond of his ex-girlfriend Camilla and the rift that was caused as a result.

Since the new season aired, it's prompted an outpouring of support for Diana and particular scorn for Prince Charles.

The social media accounts for the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall had to shut off the comments section because people were criticising the pair.

People flooded the Twitter and Instagram pages with angry messages for the Royal couple and pro-Diana posts.
