The American streaming service Netflix does not plan and does not consider it necessary to accompany every episode of The Crown series about the British Queen Elizabeth II with the explanation that it is fictional.
“We have always presented ‘The Crown’ as a drama and are confident that our subscribers understand that this is fiction, based only in general terms on real events,” Netflix said.
Also, the company noted that they do not plan and do not see the need for adding explanations, writes the journal Deadline.com.
At the end of November, UK Minister of Digital Culture, Media and Sports, Oliver Dowden, urged the American streaming service to accompany each episode of the series “Crown” with the explanation that it is all fictional.
The article notes that the British Minister’s statement was circulated at a time of growing concern in the United Kingdom that the scenes of the new fourth season of the TV show are causing long-term damage to both the British monarchy and the heir to the throne. Prince of Wales Charles, in particular.
The fresh 10-episode season of Crown, which premiered on Netflix on November 15, spans between 1977 and 1990, including the beginning of the relationship between Prince Charles and his wife Diana Spencer, their wedding and the birth of their children, William and Harry.
The first season of “The Crown” aired in 2016, with a story beginning in 1947. That year Elizabeth and Prince Philip of Edinburgh legalized their relationship.
In the series directed by Benjamin Caron, Philip Martin and Stephen Daldry, actors Claire Foy, Matt Smith, Olivia Colman, Tobias Menzies, Victoria Hamilton, Helena Bonham Carter and others are involved.
The Crown has received the Golden Globe Award three times. In early July, Netflix announced that the series will have six seasons in total.
