Prince Harry Reveals Exactly What He Thinks Of The Crown
Prince Harry has revealed exactly what he thinks of The Crown and discussed which actor he thinks should have played him.The Duke Of Sussex was asked about the Netflix show during an interview with James Corden on The Late Late Show, admitting that he had watched the Netflix drama.And it seems like Harry is fine with the show’s artistic licence, which it has come under fire about, including from his uncle, Earl Spencer.“They don’t pretend to be news. It’s fictional,” Harry said. “But it’s loosely based on the truth. Of course, it’s not strictly accurate, of course not, but loosely it gives you a rough idea about what that lifestyle, the pressures of putting duty and service above family and everything else, what can come from that.”Harry also took a swipe at certain sections of the British press, adding: “I’m way more comfortable with The Crown than I am seeing the stories written about my family or my wife or myself. Because… that [The Crown] is obviously fiction, take it how you will. But this is being reported on as fact because you’re supposedly news. I have a real issue with that.” And as for who Harry thinks should play him, James’ suggestion of Homeland and Billions actor Damian Lewis got the thumbs up (we think).“Damian Lewis as you and me as William, that’s casting,” joked Corden. “It’s not great casting, but it is casting,” responded Harry.Culture secretary Oliver Dowden is among those who think Netflix should be made to add a disclaimer to The Crown, previously saying: “It is a beautifully produced work of fiction, so as with other TV productions, Netflix should be very clear at the beginning it is just that.“Without this, I fear a generation of viewers who did not live through these events may mistake fiction for fact.” In December, Josh O’Connor – who plays Prince Charles in series three and four of The Crown – blasted Dowden’s comments, insisting: “In my opinion, it’s pretty outrageous that he came out and said what he said.“Particularly in this time when he knows that the arts are struggling and they’re on their knees, I think it’s a bit of a low blow.”Princess Diana actor Emma Corrin also said the row does “does a disservice to creativity, and imagination, and screenwriting, and scriptwriting”.READ MORE:Prince Harry Rapping The Fresh Prince Theme Tune Is The Only Thing You Need To See TodayHow The Crown Could Portray Diana's Death, According To Industry InsidersThis Is How The Crown's Gillian Anderson And Emma Corrin Were Transformed Into Margaret Thatcher And Princess Diana
