The Crown is one of our favorite shows and when we found out that Prince Harry commented on it – we were stunned. The Royals feel like they would never comment on the show, but he did in an interview with James Corden.
He continued, “It gives you a rough idea of what that lifestyle, what the pressures of putting duty and service above family and everything else, what can come from that. I’m way more comfortable with The Crown than I am seeing the stories written about my family, or my wife, or myself. It’s the difference between… that is obviously fiction, take it how you will, but this is being reported on as fact because you’re supposedly news. I have a real issue with that.”
“I’m delighted. I’m delighted that he watches it,” Josh told Entertainment Tonight, “I think anyone who watches it is a great… you know, that’s what we’re there for.”
“It’s difficult, with The Crown, since it is so fictional, it feels so removed from the actual royal family. But on the other hand, the characters are based on real people, so there is something there. I felt incredibly grateful to him. I was incredibly moved by what he said. Obviously, I played his mother and that would have been such a sensitive thing. I was very moved he acknowledged it. I’m glad he enjoyed it; I was very grateful for those words.” Emma said.
Though I do know that it is fictional, in my opinion, it doesn’t actually feel that removed from the royal family to me. Since it is based on real people and real events, it has made people start to look into moments in history that they knew nothing or little about.
What do you think of The Crown? What were your thoughts when Harry commented on it?
