‘The Crown’ to depict infamous tampon conversation between Charles and Camilla

“The Crown” isn’t leaving everything controversial in the past.

The Emmy-winning Netflix series’ fifth season, dropping next month, will depict the 1993 leaked audio in which then-Prince Charles told Camilla he wanted to “live inside” her trousers but would probably be reincarnated as her tampon.

“I remember thinking it was something so sordid and deeply, deeply embarrassing [at the time],” Dominic West, who plays the now King in the new season, told Entertainment Weekly.

“Looking back on it, and having to play it, what you’re conscious of is that the blame was not with these two people, two lovers, who were having a private conversation,” said the Golden Globe-nominated “The Affair” star.

“What’s really [clear now] is how invasive and disgusting was the press’ attention to it, that they printed it out verbatim and you could call a number and listen to the actual tape,” West, 53, said.

West said that bringing the ordeal to the screen — alongside this season’s Camilla, played by Olivia Williams — left him “extremely sympathetic towards the two of them and what they’d gone through.”

Also this week, Netflix representatives confirmed that the show’s sixth and final season will not depict the car crash that killed Princess Diana.
