That season ended with Carlos coming and going with his romantic feelings for Camilla Parker, played by Oscar winner Emerald Fennell. In a recent interview with Variety’s Actors on Actors, he discussed the challenge of playing Prince Charles:
Prince Charles is complicated. I think you have to separate yourself from the real version of him to capture something unique or different. There is the sacrifice that you sometimes have to make. I just remember there was one amazing thing that Peter Morgan, the writer, told me from the beginning. He was like, ‘Just try to remember that this kid shares his mother with a whole nation of people.’ I was like, oh my gosh. It is a terrible affliction for a child. So every time someone says, “Is the way you’re playing it a little harsh?” I say, “No. I think it’s under pressure and in the public eye.
The series has added shock as Diana’s son Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle make a new life and a series of headlines in California.
