- Prince Charles is said to have commented on The Crown
- The series depicts the British royals
- The heir to the throne seems to take it with humor
Scottish Labour Party leader Anas Sarwar has revealed, according to the Daily Mail, that the heir to the throne expressed his opinion on the Netflix series when he attended the opening of the Scottish Parliament last October.
Prince Charles: "I'm nowhere near how they portray me on Netflix"
At an event at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Sarwar recalled his encounter with Prince Charles: "He came over and went, 'Hello, nice to meet you all. I'm nowhere near how they portray me on Netflix...”
The politician admires the royal for his humor and flexibility on the subject: "I thought that was a really interesting way of how you describe yourself."
Afterward, Sarwar confessed that he could get in trouble for revealing the prince's comments as protocol dictates that politicians should not disclose what members of the royal family say to them.
He explained: "I'm going to be in so much trouble for this because I don't think you are meant to tell private conversations!"
Prince Charles has never publicly commented on The Crown, but critics have previously pointed out that the show's depiction of the failure of his marriage to the late Lady Diana († 36) seemed "distorted and sometimes downright inaccurate".
Netflix has already announced which stars will be in season 5 of The Crown portraying Diana, Prince Charles & Co, with Dominic West (52) slipping into the role of the heir to the throne and Elizabeth Debicki (31) slipping into the role of Diana.
