Queen Elizabeth's close friend Lady Glenconner has criticized The Crown.
Glenconner, the Queen's bridesmaid, said the show was unfair to the royal family.
"The problem is, I suppose, people in America totally believe it," she said.
Anne Tennant, a close friend of the late Queen Elizabeth, has criticized The Crown, saying the series is unfair to the royal family.
Tennant, who is officially known as Lady Glenconner, was a bridesmaid at the Queen's wedding to Prince Philip in 1947 and also served as maid of honor to Princess Margaret, an unpaid role given to aristocratic women who performed duties similar to that of a personal assistant.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour on Thursday, Lady Glenconner said many aspects of The Crown were untrue, including an episode suggesting Prince Philip was responsible for his sister Cecilie took the flight that led to her death in 1937.
She added that a scene in which Princess Margaret made up rude limericks with US President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1965 was also fabricated.
"I don't watch 'The Crown' right now because it makes me so angry and it's so unfair to members of the royal family," said Lady Glenconner.
"The problem is, I suppose, people in America totally believe it," she added.
Queen Elizabeth photographed with her maids of honor, Lady Moyra Hamilton (now Lady Moyra Campbell), Lady Anne Coke (now The Rt Hon The Lady Glenconner), Lady Rosemary Spencer-Churchill (now Lady Rosemary Muir), Lady Mary Baillie-Hamilton (now Lady Mary Russell), Lady Jane Heathcote-Drummond-Willoughby (now The Rt Hon The Baroness Willoughby de Eresby) and Lady Jane Vane-Tempest-Stewart (now The Rt Hon The Lady Rayne).
She added that Helena Bonham Carter, who played Princess Margaret in seasons three and four, had asked her for advice before taking on the role. She said she taught the actress how Margaret smokes and how she walks.
"I saw Helena after she appeared on 'The Crown' and she said, 'What were you thinking?' And I said, 'Well, quite disappointed.' And she said, "I know. But the thing is, I'm an actress and I have to do what's written for me," said Lady Glenconner.
It's not the first time someone close to the Queen has shared their disapproval of the Netflix drama. In October, a friend of the Queen, speaking anonymously to the Times of London, said she was "appalled" by Netflix for "slandering the royal family".
"It would have destroyed her," the friend said of how she thought the Queen would have reacted to the series.
Netflix didn't immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
