All of the above allows us to conclude that the influence of The Crown on the world is great. So much that it opens old wounds and inflicts new ones — on the royal family itself. Prince Charles suffered, since it was his relationship with Princess Diana that the fourth season is devoted to. As it turned out, several episodes were deliberately invented in order to enhance the drama. And if you activate your inner conspiracy theorist, then you can ask — why the Windsor family were not embarrassed by the fabrications in the previous 30 episodes?
But jokes aside — who benefits from the layout of the real situation and the portrayal of the complex obligations and responsibilities of the monarchs? The origin of the series is in Peter Morgan's desire to recount the audience of the Queen and her prime ministers, but the creators turned one storyline into an analysis of the entire era. 60 years, during which Elizabeth II has been sitting on the throne, will be studied and translated into artistic language.
At the same time, Morgan's courage should be noted. Despite the fact that the British treat their rulers with satirical contempt, as Giles Harvey wrote
, the producer remains majestically somewhere in the middle: "He wanted to see the Windsors steadily and to see them whole, as neither pampered half-wits nor infallible deities." It can be said that blurring the boundaries between reality and fiction is not easy for Morgan, and yet the artistic elements fit into the story like a glove.
Also there is a plausible explanation for Morgan's piety. He is the son of immigrants who met in 1950s' London. The first years of his parents' life in the new country were under the auspices of Elizabeth II — she ascended the throne in 1952. One can probably assume that they conveyed a part of their gratitude to the queen and the country for a new life and future to their son.
