The Minister of Culture of Great Britain, Oliver Dowden, believes that The Crown, from Netflix, it should have the caveat that it is a work of fiction.

Although the first three seasons did not cause a significant problem for their historical fidelity, the fourth season by The Crown, which focuses on the life of Lady Di, the princess of walesIt has been different.

This is a period that many Brits and people around the world remember vividly.

Because of this, Dowden weighed in on Sunday in the debate on the historical liberties taken by the drama about the British royal family:

It is a beautifully produced work of fiction. Like other productions, Netflix should be very clear at the beginning that it is just that.

Without this, I fear that a generation of viewers who did not experience these events could mistake fiction for reality.

Dowden is expected to express his position in writing to Netflix this week. Until now, The streaming platform did not respond to a request for comment..

In addition, the brother of Princess Diana, Charles Spencer has also spoken about the series and is that the main plot of the fourth season is the problematic relationship between Lady Di and Prince Charles, played by Josh O’Connor and Emma Corrin:

(The series should have a warning that) this is not true, although it is based on some real events. I am concerned that people believe this to be true and unfair.
