The Crown slated for ‘damaging’ representation of Charles and Camilla’s relationship by royal historian.

NETFLIX hit The Crown has been slated by royal historians who claim the show has fictionalised aspects of a young Prince Charles's relationship with Camilla.

The upcoming third season of the lavish series portrays Charles (Josh O'Connor) and Camilla (Emerald Fennell) falling for each other in the early 1970s.

And the series suggests that the Royal Family didn't approve of the romance and tried to split them up.

Netflix viewers will see Lord Mountbatten, played by Charles Dance, posting Charles overseas on naval duties in a bid to keep them apart.

And the Queen Mother is also shown meddling by persuading Camilla to marry Major Andrew Parker-Bowles, who she had an on-off relationship with.

But Royal biographer Christopher Wilson, who wrote about Charles and Camilla's romance for his book A Greater Love, claims that this didn't happen.

"I can discount them cooking up any kind of plot," Christopher told The Telegraph, adding that the Queen Mother didn't trust Mountbatten enough to collude with him.

And he insisted that Camilla already had her sights set on marrying Andrew when she met Charles.

"By the time Camilla actually met Prince Charles, she was already four years into a five-year campaign to get Andrew Parker-Bowles up the aisle," Christopher stressed.

Meanwhile, fellow Royal biographer Penny Junor has claimed that The Crown's use of "dramatic licence" could be "damaging" to Charles and Camila's reputation.

Charles and Camilla tied the knot in 2005 after becoming an official couple in 1999.

Charles was previously married to the late Princess Diana between 1981 and 1996, while Camilla was married to Andrew from 1973-1995.
