The Crown season 6 will recreate Charles and Camilla wedding

Elizabeth Debicki on her audition for Diana in Netflix's The Crown

After facing a huge backlash for recreating Princess Diana’s (played by Elizabeth Debicki) death in the upcoming season of The Crown, Netflix has decided to end the hit period drama on a much more positive note.

The sixth season of The Crown will conclude with the wedding of King Charles (Dominic West) and Queen Camilla (Olivia Williams), which took place in 2005.

The streaming giant has come under scrutiny for deciding to depict the Paris car crash that famously killed Diana.

It has also been reported that the late Princess’ funeral will also be recreated.

But following the controversy, which has reportedly upset members of the Royal Family, writer Peter Morgan has concluded his popular period drama with Charles and Camilla’s wedding.

The Mail Online reported that sources at Netflix have said that they hope including the King and Queen Consort’s wedding will put an end to the criticism that the streaming service has faced.

The portrayal of the wedding will be filmed this week at York Minster, which is being used instead of St George’s Chapel in Windsor where the King and Camilla tied the knot in 2005.

It is understood the Royal couple’s ceremony will be portrayed in a positive way, with those involved in the show’s production, hoping it will “change the perception” of the drama.

This attempt to lighten the mood of season five comes after the outrage the drama faced after Princess Diana’s death, at the age of 36, was depicted.

A Netflix insider told the Mail: “For some months it has felt like the show has been goading the public by ghoulishly telling the story of Diana’s death in a heartless way, therefore causing upset to Princes William and Harry needlessly.

“So the decision to end it so nicely, Netflix hope, will change the perception that they want to be callous, they hope it will remove the bad taste from viewers’ mouths,” the source added.

The source also revealed that Charles and Camilla’s wedding “will be a true celebration and a really happy moment” in the forthcoming season whilst adding: “It also fits nicely into the King’s Coronation year.”

However, the insider claimed that some of the drama’s team members believe using Charles and Camilla’s wedding to lift the mood is “a cynical move to protect Netflix” from leaving its viewership angry at them for recreating Diana’s tragic death in 1997.

Dominic West will reprise his role as King Charles in season six alongside Olivia Williams, who has portrayed the Queen Consort in The Crown since season five.

The on-screen couple will film inside York Minster over the course of two days this week as they recreate the famous royal wedding between the now King and Queen.

Actors portraying the wider Royal Family are expected to film there too.

All seasons of The Crown are available to stream on Netflix in US and UK.
