Lady Glenconner, who was a maid of honour at the Queen's coronation, is herself portrayed on screen.

Explain to the queen’s friend all about that miracle of modern technology the on-off button & TV remote & how to use them. She could then join with me and not watch it, albeit we’d each have different reasons for not watching. If all else fails tell her to get a life. of course, after watching 1-4 series, I thought She was so nice and kind, why people gave her hard time
Good Because it’s so close to the truth it hurts…? Ahhh...more tedious bollox on netflix..... Yeah they should have some shape-shifting in it at least If it made you so angry, why did you not say something before!! - You wait now after your friend the Queen died to comment! And But you show a photo of a curious or sad face?
I guess Netflix says it will be as authentic as history as much as possible. Life isn’t always pretty which is normal if you take the fact that man is a sinful and imperfect being. It is complete bullshit aimed exclusively at an indoctrinated American market. Ban it

Lady Glenconner should make her own Netflix show with the facts….I am very excited to get to the truth….. Nobody is forcing you to watch it... “Especially in America”…That’s the kind of sweeping generalization that comes with from such epic arrogance. As if America is somehow to blame for the constant scandal the British Royal family has in FACT had because they enjoy dramatized shows based on reality for entertainment
Not watching Royal family could do one about netflix and sprinkle in the same amount of lies. Id watch that Lady Glenconner on the media circus flogging another book of gossip and stories makes me angry. poor baby? Truth hurts eh ! Lol Genuine friends of the Royal Family don’t speak to the media regarding the Royal Family!

Must be good then
Good Got a finger at the end of your arm? Got batteries in the remote? You know what comes next… One friend, inconsequential. But, this article is actually an advertisement in disguise. Create artificial drama for this drama. Sneaky!!
Meet Liz Kingsman, The New Queen Of British ComedyShe’s superstitious about talking about her forthcoming – highly anticipated – ‘One Woman Show’ potentially becoming a hit. But she does let slip that Chris Morris and Steve Coogan are already fans.
'Netflix has said: 'The Crown has always been presented as a drama based on historical events.' But what are historical events and what is fiction? for American audiences this reads like a documentary to them and the assumption is since some can be real all must be real. Stop watching it then 🙄 HAHA - truth hurts!!!!
Brilliant drama. The lady doth protest too much, methinks 😉 I really don’t get the anger, all of this happened, the royals where not well liked in the early 90’s, this happened, you loved the crown before but now you all hate it lol, the next and last season will be grate again Very poor casting… looks like a friend’s cat!
You can listen to Lady Glenconner's full interview with emmabarnett on BBCSounds🎧 Get over it. It is a tv drama not a factual documentary I enjoyed it. I know the history is different but oh well. It's a show, not a documentary. I’m on season 4. So far I have learned great respect for Queen Elizabeth and disgust for pretty much the rest of the charade
Queen Consort Camilla glitters in matching dress and tiara for state banquetCamilla Parker Bowles looked incredible wearing a tiara at the state banquet wearing Bruce Oldfield dress. It was the wife of King Charles's first event of this kind as the Queen Consort.
It's a dramatisation of tales told by the Palace and those who worked there. I'm sure a lot of it is true. I've heard first hand accounts of what a complete w*nker Charles is. 'I'm glad the public saw his anger with that pen.. that the real him' 'complete fantasy… so unfair on members of the Royal Family' Meanwhile in the U.K: mean Tweets get you a visit from the police.
Just a matter of time and you will get over it 😉 Good It's so terrible it makes me angry too *shrugs* Truth hurts hahahaha poor dear, she'll get over it Don't watch it then.
