The Secretary of Culture of the United Kingdom, Oliver Dowden has finally broken the silence over fans’ obsession related to the hit-maker “The Crown” saying that the series ‘is fiction’ and should not be mistaken.

Dowden has asked the streaming giant Netflix to inform viewers that the royal drama “The Crown” is entirely fictional before each episode.

He said that the viewers could mistakenly take it as fact when it would stream without warning at the start of each episode.

Dowden has also praised the series as a “beautifully produced work of fiction”.

“It’s a beautifully produced work of fiction, so as with other TV productions, Netflix should be very clear at the beginning it is just that,” he said.

The minister also revealed his fear about the drama’s story, saying that “Without this, I fear a generation of viewers who did not live through these events may mistake fiction for fact.”

The warning comes in the wake of rumours the Netflix show, which has been confirmed for seasons five and six, could be extended to show Prince William and Harry as adults.

It has also been revealed by the Finding Freedom author, Omid Scobie, that he’s heard the streaming giant is considering extending the run past Princess Diana’s tragic death in 1997, he spoke on his podcast Heirpod.
