Prince Charles and Wife Camilla Shut down Comments on Their Official Page — Details
The measure was taken to avoid the inappropriate and threatening comments that the Twitter account has received in recent days.
The Royal Couple have restricted commenting on posts on their Clarence House Twitter account to only people who are mentioned in the tweet or who follow the account.
The measure was confirmed by the palace and is due to the fact that some recent responses to the publications broke the guidelines that the palace has for the Royal Household's social networks. These measures prevent the posting of abusive comments.
The negative comments were apparently directed at the Duchess of Cornwall. They would be the viewers' response to the fourth season of "The Crown," streaming on Netflix.
This part of the production is set in the years when Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana began their romance. In "The Crown" Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles maintain a relationship despite being married to other people.
THE CROWN CONTROVERSY
The series "The Crown" has generated much controversy for the way it describes the relationship between Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Even Oliver Dowden, UK Secretary for Culture, spoke in the debate.
Dowden said Netflix should clarify that the series is a drama based on the lives of real people. He said that the work is fiction very well produced like others on television and that Netflix should leave it.
The British government secretary's fear is that there is a whole new generation of viewers who did not live when those events took place. They did not have the information in real-time and first hand.
Now, these viewers are watching the show, getting to know real people through the characters, and they may confuse the fiction of the show with the real events.
COUNT SPENCER'S OPINION
The ninth Earl of Spencer and brother of Princess Diana is one of those who think that Netflix should issue a warning to its viewers at the beginning of each episode. The Earl voiced his opinion on a British TV show.
He said that since the series is of great importance worldwide it would be a huge help if viewers were warned at the beginning of each episode that although what they see is based on real events, it is not all true.
Some establishment figures and historians, including Princess Diana's brother, Earl Spencer, and the UK's culture secretary, have worried that fans of The Crown are taking the show too literally. Others say the issue is more complex than it may seem. https://t.co/sOzAVxxg8X— Twitter Moments UK & Ireland (@UKMoments) November 29, 2020
Secretary Dowdel is expected to send a letter to Netflix in the next few days requesting the inclusion of the warning at the beginning of each episode of the series. This due to the growing concern about the impact of the series on the monarchy.
The concern is about the way in which the scenes invented for the production by Peter Morgan, writer of the series, are causing damage to Prince Charles, heir to the throne and the monarchy.

In the midst of all this controversy, a statement from the astrologer Penny Thornton, who was consulted by Princess Diana, has reached the media. In those statements, Thornton says that Prince Charles communicated a bombshell to Princess Diana before marrying her.
He told her that he did not love her and was telling her so as not to start the marriage based on a false premise, leaving Diana devastated with the revelation. These claims appear in The Diana Interview: Revenge Of A Princess, broadcast on TV recently.
