Questioned by Belgian colleagues, Prince Albert II explained why he would not like a series to retrace the history of the princely family of Monaco, like “The Crown”.
This is called cutting the grass from under the foot. While preparing the fifth season of The Crown, the Netflix platform will not even have the opportunity to imagine the possibility of a spin-off on the Principality of Monaco.
Interviewed by the Belgian newspaper Evening Mag, Prince Albert II indeed expressed his disagreement that a series devoted to the Monegasque dynasty could see the light of day. If it does not detract from the quality of The Crown, the sovereign prince explained that he had neither the time to get involved as a consultant, nor the desire for historical facts to be changed.
“The Crown is very well done, the actors are very good, but it’s not an exact reflection of reality. Not only is it romanticized, but sometimes also a little distorted to bring that little touch of controversy. would not want the Principality to be treated the same. “ he declared categorically.
Never mind, since a documentary mini-series retracing the history of the couple formed by Albert II and Princess Charlene will be broadcast from this Wednesday, July 1 on the social networks of the Palace of Monaco on the occasion of their wedding pewter (ten years of marriage).
