Diana’s inevitable fate
The world still remembers the tragic day of Princess Diana’s death. While her addition to the show is a welcome one, The Crown viewers understand what will inevitably happen to her character. Viewers are already preparing to cry in front of the fireplace like a heartbroken Timothee Chalamet.
I think it's hilarious that "Prince Charles" is trending and when you click on it, it's nothing but "The Crown" watchers going "Fuck that dude"

Hate for Prince Charles
Prince Charles has made recent headlines after accusations came out against him for his alleged involvement in Jeffrey Epstein’s sex-trafficking crimes. While The Crown is a historical drama, Charles wouldn’t have been involved with Epstein at the time the show takes place, people still can’t forget what’s happening with him now.

Why is Charles surprised?
Princess Diana was twenty years old when she married Prince Charles. He shouldn’t be surprised when the twenty-year-old acts like a twenty-year-old.

So that’s why Meghan Markle left
Some viewers are pointing out similarities from how Princess Diana & Meghan Markle were treated by the royal family. It now makes sense for many why Meghan decided to take her man & child and skedaddle.
“Diana is an immature little girl who, in time, will give up her struggles, give up her fight and bend, as Philip did. As they all do. And when she bends, she will fit.”
“And if she doesn’t bend, what then?”
“She will break.”
Meghan didn’t bend or break … she left.#TheCrown pic.twitter.com/0UAipBUNdI

We stan Meghan
This quote from The Crown emphasizes why it must be challenging for any woman to marry into the royal family. Meghan Markle & Prince Harry may have made the right decision when they chose to leave.

Margaret Thatcher gives no f’s
Thatcher was a tough cookie. Maybe you disagree with her politically, but she stood her ground whenever she was confronted by the royal family or Parliament. She certainly could care less about being liked by the royal family.

Princess Anne stans
Princess Anne is a fan favorite for many of The Crown’s viewers. This user is going a bit far with their fandom towards the princess, but some people will do what it takes to show their support.

Learning about history
The Crown is a truly fascinating series that makes viewers read up on their British history to see how much of the show is historically accurate. There is so much information to consume that fact-checking the whole show will take a long time.
