We just got Netflix again for the first time in years. We have some catching up to do. We saw episode one of the first season last night. It was lovely to be able to recognize and name the characters and their circumstances. I even knew some of the dialog before it was spoken. I’m going to love it!
According to a blog site called The Crown the relationships depicted are real, but dramatized to make these individuals seem more like the modern royals, Kate and William, Harry and Meghan. I think it works
In conclusion, it is rather difficult to pick up evidences demonstrating how accurate The Crown depicts the relationships between the Queen and her entourage. The reason mainly resides in the fact that the displays of emotional affection, whether be it romance, sisterhood or friendship had to remain discreet. However, when it comes to entertainment, viewers are expecting to see the inside of the monarchy. As a result, the TV shows mainly dramatizes the ties among the characters, enabling to have a more dynamic series.
I’ll keep you posted…
