The Crown Season 6 marks the end of the popular Netflix series, but it left out several key details about the wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles. In real life, King Charles III and Queen Camilla were married on April 9, 2005, after a decades-long relationship that began when Charles was in his 20s. 

The affair with Camilla played a role in the prince's divorce from Princess Diana. Despite a rocky start in real life with issues ranging from illness to funerals, The Crown did not capture the full complexity of their wedding.

Throughout its seven-year run, The Crown has been known to omit certain events and details, blurring the line between fact and fiction. The show's focus on happier scenes in Season 6 led to a departure from historical accuracy.

The postponement of Charles and Camilla's wedding by a day due to the death of Pope John Paul II is glossed over in The Crown, as is the public backlash to Queen Elizabeth II wearing white to the service of blessing. The series largely ignores the real-world controversies and protests surrounding the marriage, opting for a more sanitized portrayal. Despite these omissions, The Crown remains a fan favorite on Netflix.
