The Crown season 4 has finally premiered on Netflix, but don’t expect Prince William or the royal family to be tuning in for the Diana infused season.
After months of anticipation, The Crown season 4 has finally dropped on Netflix with a season that has both long-time and casual fans talking thanks largely to the introduction of Princess Diana of Wales.
The season has only just dropped but critics are already calling it the show’s best outing yet and praising Emma Corrin and Gillian Anderson’s scene-stealing performances as Princess Diana and Margaret Thatcher. Meanwhile, fans can’t stop talking on social media about the season and the introduction of Corrin as Princess Diana.
Although fans are loving the season, the same can’t be said for Prince William and the royal family who have a long history of disapproving of the series and its portrayal of their family.
What do Prince William and the royal family think of The Crown season 4?
While audiences can’t get enough of The Crown, Prince William and the royal family are far from fans of the show. In fact, Prince William has such a strong disdain for the series that he was reported to have been furious with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle getting in bed with the company behind the show in striking a production deal with Netflix.
As a TV Insider told The Sun at the time, “William and other senior royals are incredibly uncomfortable about this drama and livid Harry is now in partnership with the company that’s airing it.” In other words, don’t expect William to be binging season 4 at the moment or giving the series any airtime in his home.

Not only is Prince William not a fan of the series, but neither is his grandmother, The Queen, or the royal family. In fact, the queen even went as far as releasing a statement making it quite clear the monarchy was not associated with the show in any way nor did they approve of the series.
Are you surprised in any way to know Prince William and the royal family aren’t fans of The Crown?
