In a previous interview, Harry admitted to watching some of the shows with his wife. Meghan Markle. The 38-year-old Duke of Sussex visited “The Late Late Show with James Corden”in February 2021 and commented on how fictional the show was.
“It’s loosely based on the truth,” said Harry. “Of course, it’s not entirely accurate … It gives you a rough idea of what the lifestyle is, what pressure it is to place duty and service over family and everything else that might come of it.”
“It’s more comfortable for me”Crown’ than I see stories written about my family, my wife, or me, because that’s the difference between [‘The Crown’ being] obviously a fiction, take it as you wish, but [my life] reported as fact because you are allegedly news,” he said. “I have a real problem with that.”
