In 2016, when Netflix added it to its catalog, The Crown became one of the best series about British royalty. Its staging, the characterization of its characters and the impeccable performances led Elizabeth II to be one of the first to see it. But, as the seasons passed, the Windsors placed the series on their “black list” as Peter Morgan took it upon himself to tell his story without any hesitation.
So much so that more than once from Buckingham Palace they have tried to get Netflix to clarify that The Crown it is no more than a fiction. And while Morgan has taken certain creative licenses on several occasions, the reality is that most of the things he tells are very close to what has happened in history, so they never complied with the request of the aristocrats. That is why, now, no member of the family watches the series as it is an offense to them.
This of course, except for the most controversial member of the monarchy: Prince Harry. The youngest son of Lady Di and Prince Charles stated, more than once, that he has seen The Crown and that, although it is fiction, “is very close to reality”. And because of that, the Duke of Sussex became one of the favorites of the Netflix production since he is the only one who spoke well about it. Consequently, the series would never dare to speak ill of him or less to dare to tell who was the member of the monarchy that discriminated against his first-born, Archie.
On March 7, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sat down with Oprah Winfrey to give their first interview after the Megxit, a term that was granted upon their departure from the British royal house. In this report, the dukes not only talked about their experience, but also mentioned that before the birth of their first child, Archie, there was a family member who was concerned about the child’s skin tone. This bomb exploded all over the world, but in order not to go for more, no one wanted to mention who was the culprit.
In any case, secrets do not last long in an area as controversial as the monarchy and recently it has been known who would be the culprit. More than once it was said that it was Prince William, Harry’s brother, who made that discriminatory comment, but the reality is that it was his father, Prince Charles. In the book “Brothers and wives: inside the privates lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan”, The journalist Christopher Andersen was the one who revealed the information.
According to what he recounted, when Harry and Meghan’s engagement was made public in 2017, Charles of Wales would have said to his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles: “I wonder what her first child will look like”. And, from what the journalist said, the Duchess of Cornwall was surprised by the question and did not hesitate to answer: “well absolutely beautiful i’m sure”. But, apparently the Prince would have gone for more by launching the following phrase: “I mean how do you think the child’s skin will be”.
At the moment, Harry and Meghan have not commented on this, but a statement did come out from Buckingham Palace. Through the official spokesman for the Windsors, the Prince defended himself and said: “this is fiction and we are not going to make any other comment”. Although, those who will surely tell the truth will be the Dukes of Sussex if they ever dare to speak about it.
