Among them is the meeting between Prince Charles (Josh O & # 39; Connor) and Camilla (Emerald Fennell), the future Duchess of Cornwall, before her marriage to husband Andrew Parker Bowles in 1973.

It also shows that the Queen Mother (Marion Bailey) and Lord Mountbatten (Charles Dance) apparently work together to break up the young couple by sending the young prince abroad and promoting the relationship between Camilla and Mr. Parker Bowles .

This & # 39; plot & # 39; has, however, been criticized by two royal experts, the Daily telegram it was not true.

Series maker Peter Morgan has previously noted that The Crown is not a documentary and that & # 39; leaps of imagination & # 39; needed.

Christopher Wilson, author of A Greater Love – Charles and Camilla, said it was unlikely that the Queen Mother and Lord Mountbatten would have worked together because she was never a big fan of his & # 39 ;.

He also pointed out that the timing was very different from what is shown in The Crown.

& # 39; By the time Camilla actually met Prince Charles, she had been engaged in a five-year campaign to get Andrew Parker Bowles down the aisle & # 39 ;, he said.

& # 39; When she met Prince Charles, she was only a year or so away, or less than two, from achieving this ambition. & # 39;

Penny Junor, who has written biographies of both the prince and the duchess, agreed and said that at that time Camilla was & # 39; potty & # 39; was about Mr. Parker Bowles.
