While The Crown has undoubtedly got us all hooked, many of the show's viewers have been itching to know whether the royal family depicted in the series will actually be watching themselves on screen.

Princess Diana's butler has previously said that he doesn't think any members of the royal family will watch the show, while Prince Charles' friends are reportedly unhappy with his portrayal in The Crown.

However, now it's been reported that Camilla Parker Bowles is one royal family member likely to tune in, according to a friend of the Duchess - and she's even apparently watched the show before.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, a source close to the Duchess revealed, "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 humor and this won’t fuss her in the slightest."

The source continued, "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'."

While Camilla might be settling down to watch The Crown, a family friend previously told Vanity Fair that the Queen and Princess Anne are two royal family members who definitely won't be tuning in.

They revealed, "the Queen has no desire to watch herself in a fictitious TV program, while Anne has no time for such nonsense."

Meanwhile, Prince Charles' friends reportedly haven't been happy with his depiction on the show, allegedly telling the Mail on Sunday, "This is drama and entertainment for commercial ends being made with no regard to the actual people involved who are having their lives hijacked and exploited."

"In this case, it's dragging up things that happened during very difficult times 25 or 30 years ago without a thought for anyone's feelings. That isn't right or fair, particularly when so many of the things being depicted don't represent the truth," they added.
