Meanwhile, in an interview with James Corden on The Late Late Show, Prince Harry spoke about the Netflix series The Crown and said that while it isn’t exactly accurate, they don’t pretend to be news. “It’s fictional, but it’s loosely based on the truth. Of course, it’s not strictly accurate,” he said.
“I’m way more comfortable with The Crown than I am seeing the stories written about my family, or my wife, or myself. It’s the difference between… that is obviously fiction, take it how you will, but this is being reported on as fact because you’re supposedly news. I have a real issue with that,” said Prince Harry.
