Kay, So Does the Royal Family Watch ‘The Crown’?

Published

on

By

The Crown season 4 is nearly here! And, well, if you’ve watched any of the previous seasons, you know the royals don’t always come off looking that great. At this point, I should mention that spoilers for The Crown’s third season are about to come atcha, but also, this entire show is based on literal history, so ¯_(ツ)_/¯. (Side note: If you’re in love with Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip, please join my support group at 1-800-THIRST*.)

I think we can all agree that The Crown is highly entertaining and paints a nuanced and complicated portrait of Britain’s royal family while also refusing to shy away from some of the uglier truths about their history. Take season 3, which shines a harsh light on Queen Elizabeth II and her relationship with Prince Charles. Sooo, how does the royal family feel about the show depicting them like this? And more to the point, have they even watched? Does the royal fam share a Netflix account or what? Here’s what we know.

*Not a real number, don’t call it, lol.

Princess Eugenie Has One Hundred Percent Watched

According to Hello! magazine, Eugenie—aka the Queen’s granddaughter—said she’d watched “a couple of episodes” and was down. “It is filmed beautifully,” she said. “The music is wonderful, the story is beautiful. You feel very proud to watch it. I can’t speak for everyone, but that’s how I felt when I watched it.”

Cool cool cool, also, this has literally nothing to do with the topic at hand, but I found this cute GIF of Eugenie and her husband, Jack, and I need you all to look at it with me:

The Queen Freakin’ Loves It

Or at least she used to. This nugget of info came from Vanessa Kirby, who played Princess Margaret in seasons 1 and 2. Speaking to Vanity Fair, Vanessa said a friend of hers was at a party and overheard Princess Eugenie confirm that her “granny” is a fan. “A friend of mine was at a party and didn’t know anyone, so he sidled up to this group who were talking about The Crown, when one said, ‘Well, my granny watches it and really likes it,’” Vanessa revealed. “It slowly dawned on him that the girl was Eugenie and her granny was the queen.”

Queen Elizabeth II’s son Prince Edward is apparently the one who got his mom hooked on The Crown, at least according to a ~source~. “It has been a long-standing arrangement that they drive to Windsor at the weekend to join the Queen for an informal supper while watching TV or a film,” said source told the Daily Express. “They have a Netflix account and urged her to watch it with them. Happily, she really liked it, although obviously, there were some depictions of events that she found too heavily dramatized.”

L-O-L at the royal family’s casual Netflix account, what is life.

The Queen Was “Upset” by Season 2

A senior courtier told Express.co.uk that scenes about Prince Charles’s time at school—and Prince Philip’s insensitivity toward him—during the show’s second season didn’t sit well with her, but she understood there was nothing she could do about it.

“The Queen realizes that many who watch The Crown take it as an accurate portrayal of the royal family and she cannot change that,” the courtier said. “But I can convey that she was upset by the way Prince Philip is depicted as being a father insensitive to his son’s wellbeing. She was particularly annoyed at a scene in which Philip has no sympathy for a plainly upset Charles while he is flying him home from Scotland. That simply did not happen.”

Prince William Is Not Here for It

Olivia Colman, who plays Queen Elizabeth in season 3, met Prince William at a Buckingham Palace reception and they had a verrrrry awkward conversation about the show. “He asked what I was doing at the moment before he quickly added, ‘Actually, I know what you’re doing,’” Olivia said on The Graham Norton Show. “I was so excited and asked, ‘Have you watched it?’ His answer was a firm, ‘No.’ But he was very charming and very lovely.”

Too busy dancing to watch The Crown, clearly:

The Palace Got a Little Salty About the Show

So last September, The Crown’s showrunner Peter Morgan told The Times that he has meetings with “people who are very high ranking and very active within the organization” (aka the royal household) to “tell them what I have in mind and they brace themselves slightly.”

The Queen’s communications secretary then wrote a salty letter to The Guardian, saying:

“Your article (the writer of ‘The Crown’ reveals he keeps royal household in the picture, 7 September) may have the unfortunate consequence of leading your readers to believe that the television series ‘The Crown’ is made with some sort of endorsement by the royal household or an acceptance by the royal household that the drama is factually accurate.

We appreciate that readers of ‘The Guardian’ may enjoy this fictionalised interpretation of historical events but they should do so knowing that the royal household is not complicit in interpretations made by the programme.

The royal household has never agreed to vet or approve content, has not asked to know what topics will be included, and would never express a view as to the programme’s accuracy.”

So, sounds like they’re here for the show but not here for the drama. Which, understandable! Truly can’t wait for the “courtiers” to sound off on what Queen Elizabeth thinks of season 4. Bye!

‘Real Housewives of New York City’ Star Leah McSweeney Reveals She Got a Nose Job

Published

New season, new nose? Leah McSweeney revealed she is currently recovering from a rhinoplasty.

“People are DMing me like crazy inquiring why I have black eyes and asking if I got a nose job, asking if I got beat up … I am not trying to hide anything from anybody. I got a rhinoplasty and a septoplasty. I could not be happier,” the 38-year-old Real Housewives of New York City star told her followers via Instagram Stories on Sunday, September 20. “I’ve been wanting one for so freaking long and now I can also breathe, which is great.”

McSweeney went on to shout-out her surgeon. “I love my doctor. He’s a great guy,” the fashion designer, who had a bandage on her nose and dark circles under her eyes, said. “He’s an amazing doctor, his name is Dr. Daniel Maman.”

She concluded: “And I’m just never going to be one of those bitches that pretends like, ‘It’s not work, it’s contour makeup’ because that’s f—king weird.”

Bravo viewers met the Married to the Mob CEO on season 12 of RHONY, which concludes with the final part of the reunion on Thursday, September 24. During a July episode of the series, McSweeney got candid about past — and future — plastic surgery procedures.

“I will get my titties done. I will get my p–sy done. I will get my whole face done if I want to,” she told her sister, Sarah. “I have only gotten Botox and my lips done.”

Earlier this month, TMZ reported that McSweeney had yet to sign on for season 13 as she was struggling to come to an agreement with the network for her new contract.

McSweeney previously expressed interest in returning for a second season while chatting with Page Six about the future of the franchise.

“I hope that there’s not only diversity of race but an even deeper diversity of where someone lives or what their interests are,” she said in August. “I hope that there’s just more diversity all across the board because New Yorkers are not a monolith, obviously. I think that it is gonna head in that direction.”

Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan and Luann de Lesseps are all expected to return for season 13 of RHONY, which is set to start filming this fall. Dorinda Medley announced her exit last month.

It looks like Kaia Gerber and Jacob Elordi has reached a new milestone in their budding relationship — vacationing with the parents!

Over the weekend, Kaia and Jacob were photographed on a weekend getaway with her parents Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber in Los Cabos, Mexico.

While Jacob went shirtless in gray swim trunks, Kaia showed off her hot body in a green bikini.

A source told E! about their vacay, “[They] have been hanging out at a beach club, where they were holding hands and making out. They look very happy together, always smiling and pulling each other in close. They seem very into each other and are having a good time.”

“He is never not by her side and holding her close,” the insider went on about their PDA-filled pool session, “Kaia and Jacob swam to a corner of the pool and wrapped their arms around each other and kissed. They are comfortable around Cindy and Rande, too and are not shy about showing affection.”

Cindy and Rande seem to approve of Jacob and Kaia’s relationship. The source claimed, “They have been having dinner together and always end up laughing. The four of them hang out, but they also spend time as couples alone.”

The vacation comes just weeks after the two were seen holding hands several times in New York City.

Earlier this month, Kaia and Jacob sparked rumors after they were seen having dinner at Nobu in Malibu. Another insider revealed to the outlet, “Jacob definitely has interest in dating Kaia, but there is nothing serious going on there. They have many mutual friends and have hung out many times in the past. They both have very chill personalities and similar interests. Jacob makes Kaia laugh and her family adores him.”

Elordi hasn’t addressed the dating rumors, but stressed that he is a “human being.” Stressing how much he misses his family who reside in Australia, he recently wrote on his Instagram Story, “They live in a space of constant anxiety when I am away from them, as do I in the reverse… If you find it difficult to make your way through the day, I get it, life is heavy. I implore you when you feel like this to try a little kindness, pay it forward and I promise it will find its way back to you.”

Jacob was last linked to his “Euphoria” co-star Zendaya, who he was seen kissing on the head in February. At the time, a source shared, “They were showing each other things on their phones and laughing. She seemed to be really enjoy being with him. At one point he reached over and kissed her on the forehead. She had a big smile on her face and was very comfortable with them.”
