The real dramas that didn’t make it to the final cut of The Crown

The royal family has provided enough scandal to keep fans of Netflix’s The Crown entertained for four seasons. And while Season Five of the hit show is no different, not all of the dramas that beset the royals in the tumultuous early 1990s have made the final cut – Netflix only had 10 hours after all. From how unbelievably close Diana came to getting caught collaborating with royal biographer Andrew Morton on his 1992 bestseller, Diana: Her True story, to how desperate Diana was to be believed that she even slipped Morton private correspondence between Charles and Camilla to prove her husband’s infidelity once and for all, what got left out is just as gripping. While many of the scandals did end up being depicted on screen by Elizabeth Debicki and Dominic West as the warring Waleses, Scobie explores why some of these astonishing real-life moments of controversy were left out.
