The Crown series 5 will be ‘very painful’ for Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla

The next series of The Crown will be “very painful” for The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall.

Series five of the hit Netflix series is set to drop on the streaming service in November 2022.

It stars the likes of Imelda Staunton as Her Majesty, The Queen, Dominic West as The Prince of Wales and Elizabeth Debicki as the late Princess Diana.

But while fans are speculating about the exact storylines of the series, a royal insider has exclusively spoken to the Daily Star about fresh fears over the potential negative impact from the upcoming set of episodes.

Angela Levin, esteemed author of biographies on several remembers of the Royal Family, including her upcoming project, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall: From Outcast to Future Queen Consort, reflected on the series.

The royal expert said that the upcoming season will focus heavily on the continued breakdown of the marriage between Prince Charles and Princess Diana and the role Camilla Parker Bowles (now The Duchess Of Cornwall) played.

She commented: “A lot of the weekly show is, I’m told, about Diana and right up to her death, and we'll obviously be blaming Camilla because the last one [Series 4] was very unkind about her.”

Storylines that haven’t been shown in the series so far include The Queen’s 1992 “Annus horribilis” which pertained to several catastrophic events for Her Majesty, The Queen.

Potential topics include the publication of controversial photographs concerning Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, the divorce of Princess Anne, The Princess Royal from Captain Mark Phillips, several controversies regarding the late Princess of Wales and the fire at Windsor Castle.

When asked if the Royal family are fearful or cautious about the effect of the hit Netflix series, Angela replied in the affirmative.

The biographer of the Duchess of Cornwall explained: “Yes, I think they are. I think it will be very painful.”

The commentator continued: “If they do what we all think they'll do, [The Crown will] blame Camilla again or blame the Queen or blame Prince Charles again.”

Angela added: “But you can't stop a programme like that.”

But the insider doesn’t think this is anything new for the Royal Family and that they will simply carry on when the series hits streaming screens worldwide.

Angela remarked: “I think they're used to having a difficult life with people saying rude things and making bad comments. But actually, it can in some ways turn people around when they realise it's not true.”

The royal specialist added: “There's nothing really they can do about it. It's a great shame. They just have to have what the Queen has always said, a stiff upper lip.”
