Emma Corrin Reveals Why The Charles And Diana Wedding Wasn't Recreated In The Crown
The Crown Has Managed To Ruffle Up Some Royal Feathers
Fans of Netflix’s royal drama series 'The Crown' have long anticipated the arrival of Princess Diana ever since the series began, and the show's fourth season has given everyone a treat. It is by far, the best season of the series and it has managed to ruffle up some feathers within Buckingham Palace as well.
The award-winning Netflix series is a historical drama web television series about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, created and principally written by Peter Morgan.
The Crown's season 4 arrival has spelled the arrival of Lady Diana and her wedding with Prince Charles, with Camilla being a constant third-wheel in their relationship. It has opened up old wounds and raised questions about the death of the people's heartthrob princess once again.
Royal fans had been waiting to witness the enchanting royal wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer unfold on the new season but the show didn't show the actual wedding taking place.
The grand nuptials were wrapped up by the makers within minutes, barely showing a glimpse of the Prince and Princess of Wales exchanging their vows and saying ‘I do.’
The reason for the rushed depiction of the ceremony has now been revealed by Emma Corrin, who plays Diana on the show.
She said that the entire wedding was skipped, not because of budgetary concerns, but because the entire world had already watched the actual wedding.
"We never recreate things just for the sake of recreating them. I think if we do recreate a scene—like the engagement scene, for instance, when they do the announcement—it has to be because it’s linked to something that the characters are going through."
Emma Corrin added:
"It has to be part of the story. It has to further the plot, basically. The wedding scene, you can YouTube it and you could be watching it in 10 seconds, so I don’t think there’d be any point in us recreating it."
The fourth season of The Crown has earned rave reviews from everyone, including Bollywood's king, Amitabh Bachchan. He exclaimed:
"And the Crown in all its glory continues. What performances, what writing, and what learning on the English language pronunciations, custom, tradition ceremony, history, opinions, monarchy … all rolled into one absolutely. ‘Cannot stop watching’ experience."
