Charles was between two extremes. Being overcoddled by his grandmother which gave him a sense of entitlements and feeling himself center of the universe. This sense of entitlement let him astray in his personal life. His father was harsh on the other side. And his "honorary grandfather" sent a message that it was OK to sow wild oats with many "unsuitable" women before he settled down. All of this led to big trouble. But as I said, after a while Charles was responsible for his own actions and choices.

I find it intriguing how so many dark corners of the past are being brought to light. How Philip's family was heavily embedded with the Nazis and how Margaret was clearly never a shrinking flower.

What impresses me is how it explores how difficult Philip made HM's life as Queen; HM wanted to bring Charles home and basically have him schooled at the softer Eaton, but Philip always dragged out the complaint about how he was 'just' a consort and basically browbeat HM to making Charles remain in Gordonstoun.

As for sowing wild oats, I think that was the worst advice possible to give. Basically Charles was raised and nurtured to be a user of women in that area and so while Diana had the ring and title, she was in fact just as used as the women Charles bonked and discarded.

I dare to say that I believe that episode about Charles life when he was at Gordeston... I believe that Phillip could be harsh with his son as it is portrayed in the movie... And a lot of what Charles did in future reveals that he lacked the safety of his home when he was a child... And also remember us how hard can be for a chi being bullied and not meet the expectations of our parents...

As a teacher show me how important it is to help children with this problems.

it's quite obvious why charles end up obsessed with his nanny's clone

I was appalled at the episode involving JFK and Jackie. She flirted outrageously with Prince Philip according to the episode and talked badly about the Queen, behind her back.
from the part of philip, it's given (if that REALLY happened)... if she was really said that stuff about the queen it shows jackie as a intelligent and observant woman - good on her... it's known jackie flirted with few powerful men during her Kennedy marriage - including ari onassis

Then JFK and Jackie were depicted as drug addicted plus he was physically abusive with Jackie, in that episode.

it's such WELL KNOWN about BOTH of them... several bios and TV series talk about that

the Crown took it further. Later Jackie explained to the Queen that she and Jack took some sort of "drugs." It did not say which ones. And Jack was a wife abuser (according the Crown), physically attacking her.
