Comment: The Crown’s Gillian Anderson (left) and Emma Corrin weighed in on Prince Harry’s recent seal of approval for the show – as they celebrated their Golden Globe wins on Sunday
Speaking after her award win, Gillian, 52, said:’I haven’t heard any discussions about Royals and their opinions about The Crown.
‘I think they decidedly don’t express opinions. I would say that Harry is fairly well qualified to judge what is fact or fiction and it was pleasing to hear that he understood what Peter (Morgan- the show creator) was trying to do on The Crown.
‘He’s telling a nuanced story about the challenges of putting duty and service before love and family and he has certainly many many years of experience with that.
‘And so, it was nice to be on the outside but also on the inside and hearing, perhaps, that subject put to rest… one would hope.’
Comment: Speaking with James Corden last week, the Duke of Sussex, 36, said The Crown is ‘fictional’ but is ‘loosely based on the truth’ and captures the feeling of being expected to put ‘duty and service above family and everything else’
Emma later opened up to Extra’s Rachel Lindsay about her reaction to Prince Harry’s recent interview, where he revealed he watches the show.
The drama has portrayed his father Prince Charles as callous and self-serving and his grandmother the Queen as cold.
The fourth series of The Crown which premiered last November, also showed Charles meeting and marrying an innocent Diana while maintaining his affair with the then-married Camilla Parker-Bowles. Scenes showing Diana gorging on food before vomiting into a toilet are so graphic that they carry on-screen warnings.

Iconic role: Emma said she felt ‘moved’ by the admission that Harry watches the show
‘They don’t pretend to be news, it’s fictional,’ Prince Harry said of The Crown. ‘But it’s loosely based on the truth.
‘Of course it’s not strictly accurate but it loosely it gives you a rough idea of that lifestyle and the pressures of putting duty and service above family and everything else and what can come from that.
‘I’m way more comfortable about The Crown than the stories I see written about my family, my wife or myself. Because it’s the difference between that’s [the fact] obviously fiction, take it how you will – but this is reported on as fact because you’re supposedly news.’
Emma said, ‘That really moved me in a way that I wasn’t really expecting.’
She said: ‘I would say that Harry is fairly well qualified to judge what is fact or fiction and it was pleasing to hear that he understood what Peter (Morgan- the show creator) was trying to do on The Crown’
Knock their socks off like Gillian Anderson in a halterneck gown by Dior
Dior was a real winner at last night’s Golden Globes!
Anya Taylor-Joy and Gillian Anderson (who won awards for their roles in The Queen’s Gambit and The Crown) turned to the designer label for their show-stopping gowns, and both were in striking shades of green.
The halter neckline on this dress is giving us a real 90s vibe, which reminds us, how does Gillian never seems to age? She looks incredible! We the skull print on the bodice, which contrasts beautiful with the floor-sweeping lace skirt.
This creation hails from the SS21 Haute Couture collection, and you can take a closer look via the link (right).
Or go for a Dior-inspired option from our edit below instead.

As they were: The fourth series of The Crown which premiered last November, showed Charles meeting and marrying an innocent Diana while maintaining his affair with the then-married Camilla Parker-Bowles (Charles and Diana pictured in 1981)
She continued, ‘When we’re making a show, we’re researching a show, on the one hand obviously we’re dealing with real people whose lives inform the characters that we then form, but on the other hand it’s intensely fictional, so actually when you’re doing a job it doesn’t find it so far removed from the real person and the people who are still alive…
‘It’s not something I ever felt I needed him to address or needed anyone to address, but actually hearing him say it, I’m glad that he enjoyed it, I feel moved and grateful for those words.’
Brits dominated the night as The Crown came away with multiple awards during the night, including Best Actor in a TV Series which went to Josh O’Connor, 30, who plays Prince Charles to Emma’s Lady Di.
As the night progressed, The Crown – which chronicles the life of Queen Elizabeth II from the 1940s to modern times – swept the board as it also picked up Best Drama Series. The show won the same accolade in 2017.

Director and writer Chloe Zhao was in disbelief as she accepted the honor and paid tribute to ‘the nomads’ that inspired the film as she said: ‘Nomadland, at its core for me, is a pilgrimage through grief and healing.
‘So for everyone who’s gone through this difficult and beautiful journey at some point in their lives, this is for you. We don’t say goodbye, we say, “See you down the road.”‘
Nomadland – starring Frances McDormand – is centered around a woman in her sixties who, after losing everything in the Great Recession, embarks on a journey through the American West, living as a van-dwelling modern-day nomad.
