      A Royal historian has joined growing calls for the makers of Netflix series The Crown to add a disclaimer before the start of each episode, because viewers currently see the show as the ‘gospel truth’.<br>The show’s makers have been criticised over storylines that are set to feature in upcoming series, which airs on November 9. <br>Last Friday, Netflix did partly bow to previous calls for a disclaimer to be displayed on the show by adding one to the new series’ trailer and the synopsis page on its website.

      The message emphasises that the series is a ‘fictional dramatisation’ that is ‘inspired by real-life events’.<br>But, speaking to MailOnline, historian Andrew Lownie joined growing calls for a disclaimer to also be added at the start of each episode.  <br>He said viewers treat it as ‘gospel truth’ when it is in fact fictional, and said it should be made clear it is the makers’ ‘own interpretation’.

      ‘There is no point having it on trailer and not on the programme,’ he added.<br>Mr Lownie, Slot Deposit Pulsa Tanpa Potongan who has written books about the former King Edward VIII and Lord Mountbatten and his wife, also said the makers of The Crown have ‘probably gone too far’ with the new series and its portrayal of the events surrounding the death of Princess Diana. <br>Dame Judi Dench is among leading stars who have already called for viewers to be notified in each episode that what they are watching is fictional.

      In a recent letter to The Times she slammed the upcoming series for its ‘crude sensationalism’ and said the ‘time has come’ for a disclaimer. <br>The streaming giant’s fifth season of the drama also features haunting scenes showing Princess Diana entering a limousine shortly before her death in a car crash in 1997.
      Netflix insists it will not recreate the crash.<br>It comes after Princess Diana’s close friend Simone Simmons slammed Netflix as ‘sadistic and wicked’ over its depiction of her final hours.<br>Ms Simmons : ‘These are cruel, sadistic and wicked people to recreate these moments.

      They are the lowest of the low. They are rewriting history as they go along and that’s what makes me very angry.'<br> Royal historian Andrew Lownie has joined growing calls for the makers of Netflix series The Crown to add a disclaimer before the start of each episode, because viewers currently see the show as the ‘gospel truth’.

      Mr Lownie said: ‘When we get to contemporary events and living people there needs to be more sensitivity.<br>’It is pretty cruel actually. I don’t know if there is any way around that.<br>’The series has come up to date and they are going to address things but I think they just need to emphasise more that this is their own fictionalised account rather than the truth.<br> Royal biographer Andrew Lownie<br>’I do feel very sorry for the Royal Family, people do treat it as the gospel truth and it isn’t.

      In other cases people would be able to sue for defamation.<br>’So I think it probably has gone too far. I as a biographer have to corroborate my stuff, I can’t just write anything I want or make it up.<br>’It has changed attitudes to the monarchy.
      Some people say it has humanised them but it may also have undermined respect for them.'<br>The disclaimer added by Netflix to the trailer and programme page reads: ‘Inspired by real events, this fictional dramatisation tells the story of Queen Elizabeth II and the political and personal events that shaped her reign.'<br>No trailers for previous series of The Crown on Netflix’s YouTube channel have carried such a disclaimer.<br>The Crown’s Twitter account also appears to have been updated, with a message reminding people it is ‘fictional’.  <br>The trailer, featuring Elizabeth Debicki as Diana, shows the late princess sitting down for her infamous 1995 Panorama interview with disgraced ex-BBC journalist Martin Bashir as her voiceover says: ‘I won’t go quietly.'<br>Mr Lownie added that the disclaimer should feature in each episode.

      ‘They have to have something. That is when people will watch it. They should make clear it is their own interpretation of events,’ he said. <br>’There is no point having it on trailer and not on the programme. You either do it consistently or you don’t do it at all.'<br> Elizabeth Debicki wears sunglasses and looks the image of Diana as she sits in the back of a car with Khalid Abdalla, 40, who plays Dodi Fayed, who the princess was travelling with when the car crashed in Paris<br> Ms Debicki wore a seatbelt in the back of the car as she filmed – which may be a sign the crew were not filming the exact car journey taken by the princess and Dodi in their final moments.
