The Duchess of Cornwall will watch the new series of The Crown without ‘fuss’, a friend has claimed.
Speaking to Vanity Fair, the unnamed pal said that Camilla, 72, will tune into the latest season of the Netflix phenomenon.
The series, which was released on Sunday, focuses on Britain in the 80s and follows a dramatisation of Camilla, Prince Charles and Lady Diana.
Writers have depicted a very close relationship between Camilla and Charles, with the two in contact almost every day and having pet names for each other.
But, according to a friend, Camilla is unlikely to be swept up in the fury surrounding the drama.
A friend said: “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.
“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'.”
The show is said to have caused a storm within the Palace and upset several senior royals.
Friends of Prince Charles launched a blistering attack on the show over the weekend, accusing producers of the hit Netflix drama of “trolling on a Hollywood budget”.

And commentators have been quick to criticise the drama for inaccuracies with its story telling.
One expert, Ingrid Seward, dubbed the programme “pretty inaccurate”, whilst Tom Quinn said there were parts that were “total nonsense”.
But actor Josh O’Connor, who plays Prince Charles, insisted that the show is “not a real story”.
He told the BBC: “Ultimately what Peter [Morgan, creator] does so brilliantly, is that he takes the historical facts that you know, the moments that you can either remember or you’ve seen footage of, and then paints in-between these punctuation moments.
“There’s a fascination with the Royals and people sometimes will want to believe that this all happened, and I think it’s just always worth kind of checking in and remembering that this, we’re actors, we’re not real and it’s not a real story”.
