The Queen upset by The Crown’s depiction of Prince Charles

At your disservice, ma'am? The Queen was largely entertained by the first season of 'The Crown' - but that didn't last.

Queen Elizabeth II is reported to be “upset and annoyed” by the way a young Prince Charles is depicted in ‘The Crown’.

A senior courtier revealed to a columnist at The Express that Her Majesty was unamused by the portrayal of her son’s schooldays in the second season of the popular TV drama.

‘The Crown’ documents the history of the current royal family, and it’s understood the Queen had been ‘reasonably entertained’ by the earlier episodes.

Queen unamused by Prince Charles ‘fabrication’

However, the monarch is said to be unimpressed by how her son’s time at Gordounston school in Scotland is conveyed.

Part of the second series shows Charles (played by Julian Baring) bullied and picked on at the Scottish boarding school, with father Philip expressing little sympathy for his son’s struggles.

Prince Philip (played by Matt Smith) insisted Charles went to his former public school over Elizabeth’s preference, Eton.

The senior courtier told Adam Helliker of The Express, “The Queen realises that many who watch ‘The Crown’ take it as an accurate portrayal of the Royal Family and she cannot change that.

“But I can convey that she was upset by the way Prince Philip is depicted as being a father insensitive to his son’s wellbeing.

“She was particularly annoyed at a scene in which Philip has no sympathy for a plainly upset Charles while he is flying him home from Scotland. That simply did not happen.”

Another royal expert confirmed to The Express that’s not the only scene to be a “fabrication”.

“The problem is that it is well-written, well-acted and lavishly filmed. Which makes it much worse as it perverts the truth – whole episodes are built around fabrications,” said royal author Hugo Vickers.

Third season of ‘The Crown’ on the horizon

Season three of The Crown lands on November 17.

A fully refreshed cast sees Olivia Colman take over the role of Queen Elizabeth II from Claire Foy.

The episodes span the 1960s and 70s, with much of the focus on the ultimately doomed relationship between Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon.

Helena Bonham Carter, who plays Margaret in the upcoming season, reveals she once had a “scary” encounter with the real-life royal she is about to portray on screen.

The question is, will ma’am be entertained once again or cease to be amused entirely?
