Netflix says it has “no plans” to add a disclaimer to “The Crown”

Given that “The Crown” offers a dramatized depiction of real-life events involving the British royal family, viewers may not realize that what they are watching is far less real than they might think.

The above concerns were expressed by the British Minister of Culture, Oliver Downen, who announced that he intends to send a letter and ask Netflix to place a “mark” before each episode, so that viewers do not “confuse the imagination with the facts “after allegations that the fourth season has many inventions.

“It’s a very well-produced fiction project, and as with other TV productions, Netflix should make it clear at the beginning (of the episodes) that this is just it. “Without the label, I’m afraid that a generation of viewers who did not live in the time of the events may mistakenly consider fiction to be a reality,” the British culture minister told the Daily Mail.

Helena Bonham, Carter, who plays Princess Margarita for two seasons in a row, said in an interview on the official podcast of “The Crown” that there is a significant difference between “our version” and the “real version”.

“It simply came to our notice then. I think we have a moral responsibility to say: ‘Wait guys, this is not… it’s not a dramatic documentary, we’re doing a drama. So they are two different entities, “said the actress.

Following Oliver Dowden’s request for labeling, the streaming service Netflix responded by stating that there were no plans to accept it.

“We have always presented ‘The Crown’ as a drama – and we have every confidence that our subscribers understand that it is a work of fiction based broadly on historical events,” Netflix said in a statement to Deadline. “Therefore, we have no plans – and we see no need – to add a marker,” it said.
