“She was a young woman who fell in love with someone. And it’s a story I think that maybe hasn’t been told – the kind of story before his marriage [to Dianna, Princess of Wales]. So I hope that I have done a good job.”
With the relationship being so controversial, the actress did reveal she is “nervous” about how the new series will be received, but reminded viewers the show is fictional.
She added: “The great thing about the show is that it is history. but it’s Peter Morgan’s imagining of it. I think that everyone understands that it is fictionalised but also that everyone is a real person and they’re very careful to make sure that all the characters are so well rounded.”
The Crown season three will be released on Netflix on November 17.
