British Culture Minister Caroline Dinenage, who calls it a work of fiction, believes Netflix should add an indemnity to their series. Criticizing the actions of the British royal family, the drama series is called a ‘beautifully crafted fiction’ by Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden while speaking to the Mail on 29 November 2020. He said:
‘It’s a beautifully crafted work of fiction. As with other TV productions, Netflix should be very clear at the beginning. Without it, I am afraid that a generation of viewers who have not been through these events may be deceiving fiction. ‘
It is expected to be written to Netflix soon, a quick action by Dowden is expected. The concerns were raised with season 4, as earlier questions about historical fidelity were not considered a major issue after its release in 2016. However, the current controversy arose in the 1980s, as the characters included Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. which transformed and divided Britain into her 11 years in office and the late Princess Diana whose death during a car accident in 1997 was a trauma for the country.
The clashing relationship between the heir to the throne, Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, is the story of the season that caused the quake. Former Royal Press Secretary Dickie Arbiter calls it an “ax” about Prince Charles.
Concern also draws attention to Diana’s brother, Charles Spencer, who says that the series, although based on real events, is not true. In conversation with the press, he also asks that a notice be displayed; said:
‘I’m worried that people think it’s gospel and that it’s unfair. ”
