The press may need depicted Princess Diana and Prince Charles’s whirlwind romance as a fairy story, however Crown creator Peter Morgan takes a decidedly completely different method within the interval drama’s fourth season. In a brand-new trailer, audiences are given a front-row seat to Morgan’s fictional reimagining of what it was like for a teenage Diana Spencer—a free spirit performed by Emma Corrin—to stroll the plank into Buckingham Palace and be served as much as an establishment unconcerned along with her happiness.
“Charles and Diana’s marriage, it was three Brexits and three COVIDs wrapped into one, wasn’t it?” Morgan has mentioned. “Everyone is outlined in some form or type by way of their response to the occasions that [the royal family] inflicted upon us. And on the coronary heart of all that was this marriage. I feel what’s so unhappy about it’s they have been such a dream staff. It might have been so unbelievable.”
If there was a royal fairy story, in Morgan’s opinion, it sadly didn’t contain Diana. “If something, really from Charles’s perspective, the unique fairy-tale love story is Camilla,” Morgan instructed Self-importance Honest final 12 months. “What makes it fascinating, although, is I’m not persuaded that Charles is Camilla’s fairy-tale love. I feel her large love was her [first] husband.”

Morgan maintains the view that Princess Diana was remoted and profoundly lonely in her life as a public determine—shut out by each her royal in-laws and her personal husband, who have been jealous of her recognition. Via all of it, although, the Crown creator believes that the princess by no means stopped loving Charles, despite the fact that his coronary heart was not hers.
“I don’t suppose she ever stopped loving Charles,” Morgan mentioned. “I feel she had grown to appreciate that marriage was unattainable.… I feel she might have liked different folks in direction of the top of it, however I feel her primary alternative would have been to make that marriage work.”
