The Crown star Emerald Fennell has defended her portrayal of a young Duchess Camilla, by insisting the series' presentation of her relationship with Prince Charles is 'fair and true.'
The actress, 34, told The Sunday Telegraph she wants to show viewers that the Duchess 'was just a young woman who fell in love,' ahead of her appearance in the third series of the Netflix period drama.
The Crown's third series will see the story behind Charles' first relationship with Camilla in the early 1970s, which only came to light when a photo emerged of the pair deep in conversation at a polo match.

Speaking about her role, Emerald said she does fear how viewers will react to Camilla, who dated Charles years before he met and married Princess Diana.
The Call The Midwife star said show writers are meticulous in ensuring that the royals in the series are portrayed fairly, but are aware that certain elements are fiction.
She said: 'I think anyone who watched it would think it was fair and brilliant and beautifully done... I hope.'
