One furious troll tweeted: “The true princess of wales, always Diana, Camilla, the eternal lover. The greatness of Diana will be eternal, no one will be able to take her place. Charles of England will never be King and neither deserves it. Diana Princess of Wales will live forever.”

And another troll ranted: “Hope Lady Diana, PEOPLE’S PRINCESS is in a happier place, cause you guys sure made her life hell on earth. Shame.”

What’s more, Charles is believed to be furious with his and Camilla’s depiction on The Crown.

A source told the Mail Online: “This is drama and entertainment for commercial ends. Being made with no regard to the actual people involved who are having their lives hijacked and exploited.”
