“We always present ‘The Crown’ as a drama – and we are confident our users understand that it is a work of fiction loosely based on historical events. As a result, we have no plan – and we see no need – to issue such an alert, ”a spokesperson for the streaming platform said in an official statement.
The cycle takes audiences into the 1980s and brings Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) head-on with Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson), while Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor) concludes a tumultuous marriage to Lady Diana Spencer. (Emma Corrin).
