In Great Britain a discussion has arisen about the fourth season of The Crown. The Netflix series about the British royal family is seen by many viewers as a realistic representation of reality, according to critics, while it is a dramatized version of it – fiction. The British Culture Secretary said this week that Netflix should explicitly add such a fiction warning at the beginning of every episode. But how far The Crown away from reality?
Hieke Jippes was a correspondent in Great Britain in the time of the fourth season (1980s) and knows a lot about the British royal family. She narrates in podcast Day what is and is not true of, among other things, the jerky and jealous image that is portrayed in the series of Prince Charles, and the image of the naive ‘victim’ Diana.
