Why Princess Anne Snubbed The Crown Team For Their Portrayal Of Her

People love seeing an inside look at the royal family, even if it is a bit of a fictional retelling. No one can truly know what happened within the family except for them, but it's fun to imagine yourself there. That's what makes "The Crown" so great. However, it turns out that there's one member of the royal family who is even more entertaining than her on-screen portrayal — Princess Anne.

The second child and only daughter of the queen is portrayed as a no-nonsense kind of woman on "The Crown." Well, it's that way in real life as well. Princess Anne has actually made a few comments about the Netflix show. She's one of the only members of the family to acknowledge the show at all. Although she says she doesn't actually watch it, she does have a critique about the actress who plays her.

When you hear what Princess Anne has to say about the show, she will undoubtedly become your new favorite royal. You know, if she isn't already. 

Princess Anne shades "The Crown" hair and makeup team

Princess Anne is without a doubt one of the most stylish members of the royal family. Throughout her life, she's uses her hair and makeup to speak for her when she is unable to. According to Vanity Fair, Princess Anne was even the first member of the royal family to start taking sustainable fashion into account. If all of that isn't enough to love her, she also shaded the hair and makeup team on "The Crown."

Apparently, the team doesn't have the skills that the royal has. "Actually I read an article the other day about the, I don't watch Netflix and 'The Crown,' but the actress was talking about how long it took them to do their hair like I did," Princess Anne said, according to Insider. "And I'm thinking, 'How could you possibly take that long?' I mean, it takes me 10 or 15 minutes."

If that's not the most iconic statement to come from the royal family, then we don't know what is.

Does Princess Anne read People?

Eric Doherty, the actress who plays Princess Anne on "The Crown," tells People that it could take up to two hours for her to get her hair done for the show. "Literally, I would sit in the chair, people would come in and go and come in and go, and I sat still in the same place," the actress tells the publication. "But it was so necessary for her character because it felt like her hair and her fashion were the way that she was able to express herself in the confined, controlled environment that she grew up in."

That's about 45 minutes longer than Princess Anne took doing her own hair and makeup. Netflix clearly should have just hired for the show to save some time. After all, if anyone was going to break the norm and help with the show, it would likely be her.

Side note: Does this mean that Princess Anne reads People? Because that could be better than the comment itself.
