Josh, who performed Prince Charles within the newest collection, stated: “For my part, it’s fairly outrageous. Notably on this time when he is aware of that the humanities are struggling and so they’re on their knees. It’s a little bit of a low blow.”
The actor stated viewers are conscious The Crown is a piece of fiction.
He added: “It’s important to present them the respect and perceive that they’re clever sufficient to see it for what it’s, which is pure fiction.”
Netflix asserted that they’d “no plans – and see no want” so as to add a disclaimer.

Airing simply earlier than Gogglebox at 9pm tonight, it opens with Santa’s Head Elf breaking the information to his co-workers that Santa is considering cancelling Christmas.
The group – Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, St Patrick’s Day Leprechaun, Cupid and the Halloween Ghost – then descend right into a bickering row about how to make sure Christmas goes forward.
Hopefully it’ll convey a smile to some faces after a really garbage 2020.
