Members of the Royal Family ‘watch’ TV adaptations of themselves to see ‘how untrue it is.’
THE ROYAL FAMILY is said to enjoy watching fictionalized dramas about their lives on occasion in order to spot “how untrue” the stories are.
The Crown and Spencer, a 2021 film starring Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana, may have piqued royal interest.
“The royals love that stuff,” Mr Wharfe, who worked as Diana’s personal protection from 1988 to 1993, told OK! magazine.
“They’ll keep an eye on it and are unconcerned about it.”
“They’re keeping an eye on it to see how true or untrue it is.”
Mr. Wharfe emphasizes the importance of remembering that these are fictionalized dramas, not true stories.
“Peter Morgan [creator of The Crown]has stated that this is not a documentary based on true facts,” he said.
“Some of it is true, and some of it is designed to entice people in.”
“I thought Emma Corrin did an excellent job portraying Diana.
“There wasn’t much of a physical resemblance, but she nailed the mannerisms, walk, and speech.”
“But one thing’s for sure, Diana didn’t roller skate around Buckingham Palace,” Mr Wharfe added.
Prince Harry spoke about his feelings about The Crown in an interview with James Corden on the Late Late Show.
“They don’t pretend to be news,” said the Duke, 37.
It’s a work of fiction, but it’s based on events that happened in real life.”
“Of course, it’s not entirely accurate… But it gives you a rough idea of what that lifestyle – the pressures of prioritizing duty and service over family and everything else – can entail,” he explained.
