In an interview with Australian Women's Weekly, she told the magazine: 'I don't think they watch it and I never watch it.'

Joanna added: 'All the poor actors who are doing their best to copy them, it's awful. Imagine somebody making up conversations they think you've had.'

The actress, who attended Charles and Camilla's 2005 wedding, played by Josh O'Connor and Emerald Fennell respectively in season four of The Crown, also touched upon her great respect for 95-year-old Queen Elizabeth.

She told the outlet that the public will feel as though they have lost 'a mothership' when the monarch passes away.

The Crown has been widely criticised for its unfair portrayal of the royal family, and even the very first episode of season four featured inaccuracies.

Viewers saw Lord Mountbatten (played by Charles Dance) writing a letter in which he warns Prince Charles against bringing 'ruin and disappointment' to his family and insists that he drops Camilla.

The Prince receives the letter in the days after Mountbatten was murdered by the IRA in August 1979, however there is no record of any such letter being written.
