The series about the British royal family is in its fourth season, where the focus is on the relationship between Prince Charles and Princess Diana. This season has sparked debate in the UK, including a series of depictions of Diana’s eating disorders and Charles’s treatment of his wife.
The debate has even reached a political level, and British Culture Minister Oliver Dowden believes that Netflix should warn viewers that the series is fiction, as younger viewers may confuse content with facts. He is supported by actress Helena Bonham Carter, who plays Princess Margaret in the series, and Diana’s brother Charles Spencer.
Netflix is now responding to criticism, explaining that the series has always been described as a drama. “That’s why we have no plans, and we don’t see any need to have a fire,” the streaming giant wrote in a statement to the BBC.
