Prince Charles' wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, has fallen victim to a hoard of online abuse.
Her Royal Highness has been attacked by fans of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, after season four of The Crown aired scenes featuring their differing relationships with Prince Charles.
Camilla, 73, is portrayed as continuing to have an affair with the Prince of Wales throughout his marriage to Diana – despite historians pointing out this is inaccurate.
Despite the on-screen adaptation of their romance, Charles and Camilla had little contact for five years after his wedding to Diana in 1981.
However, viewers of the hit show, are shown Charles [Josh O'Connor] and Camilla [Emerald Fennell] meeting up on several occasions as well as continually phoning one another.
Earlier this week, a photograph of the Duchess was posted to the official Royal Family Instagram after she judged the Queen's Commonwealth Essay Competition.
Moments after the picture of the royal was posted, fans of Diana flocked to the comment section to bash the future Queen consort.

"Camilla is the side piece that finally got to marry 'her prince', she will never be respected by the royal family or his children I'm sure," commented one.
While a second penned: "Please… no one cares about Camilla."
A third follower went on to add: "We love Diana! Camilla will never be a queen."

"I understand it was a long time ago but honestly, I am upset that Camilla was a married woman and Charles was married to Diana but they disregarded their spouses completely and now they are praised as a happily ever after future King and Queen," said a fourth.
While many believe that The Crown is factually accurate, it is in fact a dramatisation, with creator Peter Morgan writing fictional scenes.
Despite the negative reception her character has received, the Duchess is said to have tuned into season four with a glass of red wine.
"I imagine she'll be tuning in with a glass of red wine to watch it, she has seen the previous series," a pal told Vanity Fair.
They added: "She has a wonderful sense of humour and this won't fuss her in the slightest.
"I don't think she has any real issue with it. Her feeling is very much 'never complain, never explain.'"
Prince Charles and Camilla's official Clarence House Twitter account has since deactivated replies on the page.
Season four of The Crown is available to stream on Netflix, now.
Daily Star has approached The Crown for comment.
