Prince Harry has been urged to abandon his and Meghan Markle’s Netflix deal over The Crown. He said he would “become a hero” if he “departed” from the agreement with the majors.
Levin’s comments come amid controversy surrounding the stories and portrayals of members of the royal family, including Princess Diana, in the fifth series of the royal drama released yesterday.
A royal biographer told The Sun:
“They could have given them the money back and gone, but he doesn’t want to.
“If he goes away, he’ll be a hero. Harry should go.”
According to royal biographer Hugo Vickers, “The royal family has been unfaithful from day one.
“They distort the facts, collide with more or less real events, and create something that didn’t really happen.”
Some have asked Netflix to add a disclaimer at the beginning of the episode to clarify that it is fiction.
However, Princess Diana’s Elizabeth Debicki claimed that viewers of the show knew it was “clearly fiction”.
And Dominic West, who played Charles, described the disclaimer request as “very flattering.”
“The reason people think so is obviously because they feel that The Crown is more authentic to people than the thousands of other movies, columns, inches, books and TV shows that have been made about this family. .
“It resonates with people. I think it’s because it’s a great show.”
Buckingham Palace is gearing up for a new series to begin just months into King Charles’ reign.
The Crown was slated to end after the fifth series, but the show’s creator and writer Peter Morgan later said it would be extended to include one more.
Harry and Meghan signed a Neflix deal after stepping down from royal duties for a new life in the United States in 2020.
