Princess Diana’s brother Charles Spencer said that he refused to let “The Crown” film at his family’s Althorp House estate.
Princess Diana grew up at Althorp House, an estate in Northamptonshire, England. She is also buried there.
“They applied. They wanted to shoot here. But I don’t really do that stuff,” Spencer said on “BBC Breakfast” in 2021, according to Hello! magazine.
“Actually, to be honest, I don’t watch ‘The Crown’ so I just said: ‘Thank you but no thank you,’” he added.
Spencer also expressed concerns about the show in an appearance on the ITV show “Love Your Weekend with Alan Titchmarsh.”
“The worry for me is that people see a program like that and they forget that it is fiction,” Spencer said, per Hello! magazine. “They assume, especially foreigners, I find Americans tell me they have watched ‘The Crown’ as if they have taken a history lesson. Well, they haven’t.”
