  • Princess Diana’s brother Earl Spencer worries that people see the Crown as factual
  • Appearing on Love Your Weekend with 56-year-old Alan Tichmarsh said that elements of the Crown were created using “assumptions and inventions”
  • He also revealed that he refused to approach the show to a movie in Althorp

Princess Diana’s brother said he was worried that fans of The Crown would forget that the show was not 100 percent historically accurate.

Appearing as a guest on Love Your Weekend on Sunday with Alan Tichmarsh, 56-year-old Earl Spencer discusses the latest series of The Crown, which aired on Netflix on November 15 – and turned out to be a huge hit for the online streaming service.

In the fourth season of the hit show, Josh O’Connor and Emma Corinne play Prince Charles and Princess Diana, respectively.

Spencer says he worries that viewers – especially American audiences – will not appreciate the “invention and convection” used in the series – and says his response to requests to shoot at Spencer’s family home in Northamptonshire is “obviously not.”

Peter Morgan, who created The Crown, said he based the series on facts, with elements of the show produced under a creative license.

Speaking about Love Your Weekend, Spencer said: “My concern is that people see such a program and forget that it is a fabrication.

“They suggest, especially foreigners, that I find Americans telling me that they watched The Crown as if they had taken a history lesson. Well, they are not.

It’s very difficult, there are many assumptions and many inventions, right? You can actually pin it, but the bits between them are not a fact.

Spencer also revealed during his appearance on the show that he had refused a request from the show’s producers to shoot at Althorp, his family’s majestic home.

“The Crown asked if they could shoot at Althorp, and I said obviously not.”

Diana’s brother currently lives in the 90-room property with his third wife, Karen, and their seven-year-old daughter, Lady Charlotte, Diana Spencer.

Currently, the house with 90 rooms houses some of the best private collections in Europe of furniture, paintings and ceramics and is located in 13,000 acres of countryside. It has a 550 acre park.

Diana’s brother believes it is his duty to protect the inheritance of his sister, who died in a car accident in 1997.

The show’s creator, Peter Morgan, said of the photos: “Sometimes you have to abandon accuracy, but you never have to abandon the truth.”

He said: “I feel it is my duty to stand up for her when I can. She left me, for example, as a guardian for her sons, etc., so I feel that trust has been betrayed.

“And we grew up together, you know, if you grow up with someone, he’s still that person, it doesn’t matter what happens to him later. So yes, I feel very passionate about having a role in honoring her memory.

Spencer’s comments came after The Crown creator Peter Morgan spoke to The Times and said he needed to be creative with certain parts of the show.

“We do our best to do it right, but sometimes I have to combine [incidents],’ he said. “Sometimes you have to give up accuracy, but you never have to give up the truth.”

In the fifth season of The Crown, Princess Diana will be played by Elizabeth Debicchi, who starred in The Night Manager.
