Dominic West Says New Season Of The Crown Will Be 'Tumultuous'

Dominic West Says New Season Of The Crown Will Be 'Tumultuous'

Filming is due to begin this summer on season six of The Crown, which will detail the death of Princess Diana

The upcoming season of The Crown is set to be 'as tumultuous as it gets' as the historical fiction follows the 1997 death of Princess Diana.

The news was revealed by actor Dominic West who portrays Prince Charles in the hit Netflix series, which documents the life of Queen Elizabeth II. Watch the trailer for season four below:

The fifth season of the show began filming in July of last year and it is now finished, with Netflix announcing that it will be available to stream this November.

The actor, 52, told Deadline that the sixth season of the show will look at Princess Diana's untimely death in Paris and the repercussions this had on the Royal Family.

He said of the season which is set to begin filming this August: "It will be as tumultuous as it gets, I think."

While Prince Charles has been criticised for his marriage and subsequent divorce to Princess Diana, West said that he thinks highly of the heir to the throne, 73.

"I love the man," the actor said. "He's a force for good, he really is an extraordinary man."

West's comments come after Prince William reportedly said that he was 'deeply frustrated' that certain aspects of his mother's life may feature in the series, as reported by The Telegraph.

This was a reference to the Princess's 1995 interview where she reflected on her marriage to Prince Charles and said: "Well, there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded."

However, The Crown does have its fans within the Royal Family - namely, Camilla Parker Bowles.

A source close to the Duchess told Vanity Fair: "I imagine she'll be tuning in with a glass of red wine to watch it, she has seen the previous series. She has a wonderful sense of humour and this won't fuss her in the slightest."

The source added that both she and Prince Charles, who she married in 2005, have seen the show.

"She has watched it, of course, she has and I believe [Charles] has too. I don't think she has any real issue with it. Her feeling is very much 'never complain, never explain'."

But the Queen herself reportedly has no desire to watch the show, which details her life from 1947 onwards.

"The Queen has no desire to watch herself in a fictitious TV program, while Anne has no time for such nonsense," a Royal source told Vanity Fair.
