The Crown season 4 won't include Prince Charles' tampon mishap

Netflix hit drama The Crown will not feature Prince Charles speaking about being Camilla Parker Bowles’ tampon in the fourth season.

In perhaps one of the most infamous moments in the royal family’s history, a secret recording of a phone conversation between Charles and Camilla (while he was married to Princess Diana) uncovered him telling her that he wanted to be her sanitary product.

The tape allegedly included the Prince of Wales saying: ‘Oh God. I’ll just live inside your trousers or something. It would be much easier!’

Camilla then responded: ‘What are you going to turn into, a pair of knickers? Oh, you’re going to come back as a pair of knickers.’

‘Or, God forbid, a Tampax. Just my luck,’ Prince Charles joked.

While some royal fans may be hoping this bizarre moment in time makes it into the hit Netflix series, it won’t actually be making the cut.


Josh O’Connor, who plays Charles in the third and fourth series, has said that he was told that the ‘Tampongate’ wouldn’t be shown during the early stages of the casting process.

‘When they offered me the role, one of my first questions was — I say questions, I think it was pretty much a statement — ‘We are not doing the tampon phone call,’ Josh began.

The actor admitted that he objected to the scene as it meant it would ruin one of the few roles that he hasn’t embarrassed his parents with.

He added to E! Online: ‘This was my one chance for my parents to see something with no shame and there’s no way I was going to scuttle that by talking about tampons on Netflix.’

It comes after TV bosses were forced to finish filming season four early amid coronavirus fears.

Metro.co.uk has reached out to Netflix for comment.

The Crown is available to stream on Netflix now.
