Prince Charles and Camilla’s official Twitter account have turned down comments about a charity post after being flooded with vitriol.
On Tuesday, the Twitter account at Clarence House, which publishes updates and photos of the Prince of Wales, 71, and the Duchess of Cornwall, 72, shared photos of Camilla speaking to staff and residents of a British homeless charity.
Unlike previous posts, the comments section is closed. This comes after the royal couple’s accounts on social media have been flooded with hateful comments in the wake of the latest season of “The Crown”.
Some of the comments focused on Camilla’s appearance and teeth, while one person remarked: “Money can buy you fancy clothes and jewelry, but not DIANA̵
Season 4 of the Netflix series tells of Prince Charles’ miserable marriage to Diana and his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles, who was also married at the time.
However, the acclaimed dramatization portrays Charles and Camilla as having conducted their affair throughout his marriage to Diana. According to an authorized biography of the prince, he began his affair with Camilla in 1986, five years after his marriage.
In a 1994 interview, he admitted that he tried to be “faithful and honorable,” but began to see Camilla as his marriage “was irreparably broken down, as we have both tried.”
In the latest Instagram post, which trumpets Camilla’s involvement in the Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition, the comments section was flooded with comments from Diana supporters. Many of them simply wrote, “Diana ❤️” Among the outpouring of Diana, there were some pro-Camilla comments in which one person wrote, “Everyone here realizes the crown is fictitious, right?”
