Since its first season, rumors have been swirling about Queen Elizabeth loving the hit Netflix series, The Crown, while other members of her family including Prince William, are reportedly less-than fans. But, after the show’s season four debut, many have wondered if the family’s unconfirmed affinity for the show had worn off following its chronicling of Princess Diana’s experience. Nonetheless, the royal family apparently has one devoted viewer — the Queen’s grandson-in-law, Mike Tindall, Page Six reports.
Tindall is married to Princess Anne’s daughter, Zara Phillips, and admitted to being a regular viewer of the Netflix show. According to the outlet, Tindall appeared on the podcast, The Good, The Bad and The Rugby, and was asked about the show. “I need to catch up,” he said to the host. “I actually saw the advert for it, and I was like, ‘Ooh, I need to catch up’ because I only got about halfway through season three so, I started watching season three last night and then I’ll catch up.”
Since season three showcases his mother-in-law more frequently, it’s no wonder that he wants to catch up on all of the action. One of our first confirmed royal family members who watches The Crown, Tindall joins the ranks of Princess Eugenie and, allegedly, the Queen herself.
Mike Tindall warns fans that the show is made to be dramatic
While the producers of The Crown admit to taking creative licenses, its popularity comes in part from its real-life characters. As it showcases personal details of the royal family’s lives, many wonder whether or not the show angers those in the establishment. “I’m quite intrigued to see where they go with it because obviously, it’s an era people are fascinated with,” Tindall said. “It’s getting to more things that people know about, isn’t it, and have opinions about — so that’s where it gets difficult.”
With that, he added a warning, “But remember everyone, it is a drama so it’s going to be made into a bit of a drama.”
As things get more personal in the series, only time will tell whether or not Tindall remains a supporter. According to People, the hosts of the podcast asked Tindall if he thought that an unknown “incident” from his 2011 nuptials to Phillips would be featured. “I mean, that has to be the main incident if it was there, the full Harry slap,” Mike said.
To which one of the hosts responded, “They don’t even know about that, Tinds. That wasn’t what we were talking about but now you’ve revealed that as well. Now you’ve put that in, the show’s now on the map.”
Since the show’s fanbase is younger than the Queen’s cohort, many will be anxiously awaiting the its chronicling of the modern royal family. Time will tell if we get to find out what happened during “the incident”.
