British Royal News: Omid Scobie Says The Windsors Can’t Blame Anyone But Themselves For The Crown

British Royal News says that while it might look like it’s art imitating life, there are some people who insist that’s not the case at all. Royal author and biographer Omid Scobie says that the British royal family have no one to blame for themselves for Netflix’s The Crown showcasing the good, the bad, and the downright ugly. Here’s what you need to know.

British Royal News: Omid Scobie Says The Windsors Can’t Blame Anyone But Themselves For The Crown

In his new column for Yahoo, Scobie makes it pretty clear that The Crown Season 5 is both well-sourced and well-researched, meaning that the series producers definitely did their homework. That, and they also have the receipts to back up their claims. And while the royals would like everyone to know that the series is nothing more than fictional entertainment, Scobie begs to differ.

In his column, he puts it this way, “It’s easy to sling mud at episodes few have actually seen yet, but in my opinion much of the scandal this season is sourced from one place: reality. I’d imagine that this is what scares the royal institution the most. Because while The Crown’s scripted dialogue comes straight from the writer’s room, and you’d be a fool to treat this show as a historical documentary, the majority of jaw-droppers in the plot come courtesy of the Royal Family and the press. And for those, they have no one to blame other than themselves.”

Scobie also says that he’s watched the fifth season of The Crown but can’t say much because of the embargo. However, he does state that the royals have nothing to fear but themselves. He continued, “I can say that a lot of this series takes its lead from information readily available in the public domain, be it on-the-record television interviews, Diana’s audio tapes to Andrew Morton, numerous biographies (including Jonathan Dimbleby’s 1994 book, which Charles co-operated with) and archival reporting from British newspapers.

So far Buckingham Palace has not made any comments about the matter, nor has anything been said about whether or not King Charles III will be watching The Crown on November 9th along with the rest of the world.
