Emma Thompson, Emma Watson, and many other stars (but also politicians, from London Mayor Sadiq Khan to conservative William Hague) at London’s Alexandra Palace where the first evening of William and Kate’s Earthshot Prize sponsored by the Royal Foundation is held.
The Earthshot Prize (the richest green award in the world, created and launched by prince William) awards its top five winners each with a prize worth £ 1 million (€ 1.2 million). Many celebrities but no guests flew from overseas.
Only British stars in attendance, the others (many, many VIPs) connected via Zoom.
The award-winning series “The Crown” Season Four, has been heavily criticized by the royals of England : they accuse producers of the hit Netflix drama of presenting fiction as facts.
The controversial fourth season is based on the events of the royal family’s life between 1979 and 1990, and focuses especially on the turbulent relationship between Prince Charles and Princess Diana, played by Josh O’Connor and Emma Corrin.
Prince William thinks that both of his parents have been presented in a false and simplistic manner and he thinks this is deeply unfair, especially since many of the things that are narrated do not represent reality.
Moreover Charles is described, since the beginning of the engagement with the young Diana Spencer, in his extramarital affair with Camilla Parker Bowles.
Congratulations to the cast composed by top-level actors, but do you know that even Emma, a while ago, played the part of the Queen?
She played the part of the monarch in Walking the dogs, a touching comedy drama based on the events happened in 1982, when an intruder climbed up the garden walls of Buckingham palace and broke into Queen Elizabeth’s bedroom while her footman was out walking the dogs.
Emma also played the role of the red-haired monarch Queen Elizabeth I in the sitcom Upstart Crow Christmas Special.
