Royal myths debunked: Fact vs fiction as royals anticipate new season of The Crown

  Royal myths debunked: Fact vs fiction as royals anticipate new season of The Crown The Crown is coming back for its fifth and penultimate season, but with the turbulence of the Nineties providing the backdrop for the upcoming episodes, the hit Netflix series is facing further scrutiny for blending facts with fiction.It came after backlash from public figures including former Prime Minister John Major, who is set to be a key figure in the new season, and Judi Dench, who accused Netflix of misleading viewers. This is not a new criticism of the show, with many calling out The Crown for failing to warn that it's not wholly true. A disclaimer was subsequently added to the new season trailer, stating that the show is a "fictional dramatisation", "inspired by real events".

Ms Giuffre, now 38, claimed she was forced into sex at 17 with the Duke by Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, the media heiress who was convicted of sex-trafficking girls for the financier.

Andrew denied the allegations against him and later came to an out of court settlement, reportedly worth £12 million, with Ms Giuffre. The settlement is not an admission of guilt.

The Channel 4 musical, from Hat Trick Productions, will feature a 'reimagining' of Andrew’s infamous Newsnight interview with Emily Maitlis, which will include the song I Nailed It.
