Will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Netflix docuseries ever see the light of day? Your guess is comparably great as mine.
While there has apparently been a lot of stress over what could be uncovered about the royals in said documentary, it’s one more circumstance altogether which has supposedly prompted another delay.
The first episode of The Crown’s forthcoming season portrays a 65-year-old Prince Charles campaigning then-Prime Minister John Major to assist him with empowering Queen Elizabeth to relinquish the throne in favor of Charles, a discussion which Major categorically denies at any point occurred.
A representative for Major told the Mail, “As you will know, discussions between the Monarch and Prime Minister are entirely private and—for Sir John—will always remain so. But not one of the scenes you depict are accurate in any way whatsoever. They are fiction, pure and simple.
“There was never any discussion between Sir John and the then Prince of Wales about any possible abdication of the late Queen Elizabeth II—nor was such an improbable and improper subject ever raised by the then Prince of Wales (or Sir John).”
The representative finished up, “Thus, if the scenes you describe are broadcast, they should be seen as nothing other than damaging and malicious fiction. A barrel load of nonsense peddled for no other reason than to provide maximum—and entirely false—dramatic impact.”
Accordingly, a representative for The Crown protected the show’s creative decisions. “The Crown has always been presented as a drama based on historical events,” they said (via the BBC).
“Series five is a fictional dramatisation, imagining what could have happened behind closed doors during a significant decade for the Royal Family—one that has already been scrutinized and well-documented by journalists, biographers and historians.”
Be that as it may, despite the fact that Netflix remains by The Crown, they appear to feel they shouldn’t for a second need to outrage significantly more royal insiders by likewise releasing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’ docuseries, which has previously proven controversial. The original plan was supposedly to release it in December (The Crown turns out in November), however we’re clearly now taking a gander at a 2023 delivery date.
“They’re rattled at Netflix, and they blinked first and decided to postpone the documentary,” a source told.
The docuseries was rarely officially affirmed — basically not by the Sussexes’ Archewell Productions — but rather has been allegedly in progress for months now.
“There’s never been any documentary from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed,” a representative for Netflix told. Uhhh, k?
