Is The Crown season 5 a cause of concern for The Royal Family?

At TUDUM, Netflix’s global fan event, the streamer unveiled a teaser and the release date for season 5 of The Crown. The latest episodes with an entirely new cast will grace our screens on November 9. As fans around the world go berserk, the actual members of the Royal Family find themselves on pins and needles.

So much so that about a month ago, a senior source of the family addressed the public. Shortly after the coverage of the Queen’s state funeral, they strongly reiterated that the Netflix show “is drama, not a documentary.” Perhaps this concern is because this season will explore one of the most controversial storylines that went down in history.

In conversation with the Telegraph, a senior source dubbed The Crown as “exploitative” regarding its subject matter.

What people forget is that there are real human beings and real lives at the heart of this,” they said.

Since the beginning, The Royals have been extremely cautious of their public image. They go to great lengths to control the narrative and make sure every story that reaches the masses is pre-approved. With the Netflix show, however, it is the streaming platform calling the shots, leaving the members of the Royal Family unsettled.
