I wanted to view the video on the Golden Globes but it has been removed for rights reasons… By the way it’s not a problem because I saw another resume. I’m so happy for the actors of the series “The Crown”! They were amazing in their roles of Diana and Charles. I heard that the royal family was furious and said it was not the way things happened… I think we would never know the truth but what is sure is that I will continue to watch and enjoy this series!
