Not every member of the royal household are said to be impressed with how they are portrayed on The Crown.

But the Duchess Of York seems very happy indeed with how she came off on the Netflix show.

Sarah Ferguson has given her thoughts on how the show depicted her wedding to Prince Andrew.

Fergie, played by newcomer Jessica Aquilina in series four, says she has no complaints at all about her part – and loved how the producers handled her marriage.

In an interview with Us Weekly, she said: “I thought it was filmed beautifully. The cinematography was excellent.

“I loved the way they put my wedding in as well.”

But if what one of the stars of the show says is proved to be accurate, then the Duchess Of York is one of few royals to be impressed.

Emma Corrin received widespread praise for her portrayal of a troubled Princess Diana of the Netflix drama.

But it seems not everyone was as thrilled as Fergie when turning the TV on.

She was asked last year on Tamron Hall’s US talk show about speculation that the Palace weren't best pleased.

“It’s a difficult one,” she said. “I think for everyone in the The Crown, we always try and remind everyone that the series we are in is fictionalised, to a great extent.

“Obviously it has its roots in reality and in some fact, but Peter Morgan’s scripts are works of fiction.

“At the same time, I understand why people would be upset, because this is history… and even with Diana, you know, it’s still very much fresh, I suppose, everything that happened.

"So I do really understand if people would be upset.

“But obviously, for all of the cast, we just want to constantly remind people that we approach these people that we play as characters, which is why it’s such a joyous job.

"They write such rich and complex characters, and as an actor it’s such a joy to be able to really bring a lot to them.”
