Prince Charles’ Reputation Was Damaged By Netflix Following The Release Of Two Programs

During a recent discussion on Royal Beat, royal expert Richard Eden revealed that two recent Netflix shows even tarnished Prince Charles’ reputation. And what’s worse is that they were released at the same time.

“They broadcast The Crown at the same time as Diana: In Her Own Words, which was a really powerful program. Netflix promoted the two at the same time. They used this version of her marriage breakdown as a basis for The Crown script. People watched it, like my daughter's generation, [and] were just horrified,” he said (via Express).

Royal Fans Had Negative Reactions To Prince Charles, Camilla Parker-Bowles’ Affair

After watching the two shows that tackled Prince Charles and Camilla’s affair, Eden said that a lot of viewers couldn’t help but think how awful the heir to the throne is. After all, he had an affair with Camilla while his then-wife, Princess Diana, was struggling with her own demons.

“They were like, 'oh Prince Charles is [a] dreadful man isn't he' and it really did damage [his reputation]. You know, courtiers and friends of Prince Charles talked about how much damage it was doing to the monarchy,” Eden said.

The royal expert also said that the documentary centered on the Princess of Wales also featured some of the late royals’ recordings, which no one thought would ever be made public.

“They, kind of, had her voice, very spookily, over images of her,” he said.

Even though The Crown and Diana: Her True Story both damaged Prince Charles’ reputation, the dad of two never released a statement about the two programs. In fact, Prince Charles has never reacted to royal family-inspired shows.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle’s Tell-All Also Damaged Prince Charles’ Reputation

Last year, Prince Charles’ reputation was also damaged following the release of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s tell-all with Oprah Winfrey.

During the interview, the Duke of Sussex revealed that Prince Charles stopped taking his calls even before he and Markle announced their Megxit.

After the interview aired, Prince Charles’ popularity dropped, according to You Gov.

However, the public’s perception of the other members of the royal family did not change even after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex claimed that there were racist remarks within the household. Markle also outed Kate Middleton as the person who made her cry, but only Prince Charles’ popularity plummeted, according to Business Insider.

As of writing, Prince Charles is gaining more respect from the public. But several royal fans are still hoping that he would give up his spot in the Order of Succession and give way to Prince William to become the next king of Britain, according to Express.
