  • The 72-year-old Duchess of Cornwall is set to watch a new series from The Crown, a friend claims
  • Camilla is portrayed by actress Emerald Fennell on the hit Netflix show
  • The series falsely suggests that Charles and Camilla stayed together without a break
  • Freund insists that Camilla should not be offended by showing her on the screen

The Duchess of Cornwall will watch The Crown's new series and won't get upset about how she's portrayed, a friend said.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, the unnamed royal insider, Camilla, 72, said he would be watching the fourth series of the Netflix show with a glass of wine in hand, which aired in the US and the UK on Sunday.

The series mistakenly shows Charles (played by Josh O'Connor) and Camilla (Emerald Fennell), who were in almost constant contact with Diana during the early years of his marriage, and shows them together the night before his wedding sleep.

However, the duchess is unlikely to be irritated by the fictional version of events.

"I can imagine her looking at a glass of red wine to watch it. She saw the previous series," the friend told the publication. "She has a wonderful sense of humor and it won't upset her in the least."

The source added, “She saw it, of course she did and I think (Charles) saw it too. I don't think she has a real problem with it. Her feeling is very "never complain, never explain".

Royal commentators have lined up to criticize the drama, including Ingrid Seward who called it "quite inaccurate", Dickie Arbiter who said "some of the acts are fiction," and Sally Beddell Smith who said "the level the invention has increased ".

Tom Quinn said parts of the show were "total nonsense", although Paul Burrell was full of praise and said it was a "fair and accurate dramatization of what happened".

The series features Charles (played by Josh O & # 39; Connor) and Camilla (Emerald Fennell), who were in almost constant contact with Diana during the early years of his marriage, and shows them sleeping together the night before his wedding . In the picture emerald with Emma Corrin as Diana

Inaccuracies have also been noted in the drama, including that Charles viewed Lord Mountbatten as a father figure rather than Prince Philip and that Margaret Thatcher told the Queen that she considered women incapable of holding high office.

Meanwhile, Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen warned The Crown had painted a twisted picture of the late Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher and her tenure, including her fight against the IRA and the decision to go to war against Argentina.

Friends of Prince Charles launched a violent attack on the show over the weekend, accusing the producers of the hit Netflix drama of "trolling on a Hollywood budget".

Some of the prince's closest confidants have accused the streaming giant of exploiting the royal family's pain for financial gain and enraged that "fiction in its twisted version of events is portrayed as fact."

The fourth series, which kicked off Sunday, covers Charles' damn marriage to Princess Diana, her eating disorders and his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles through to the end of Margaret Thatcher's tenure as Prime Minister.
