THE Crown fans were left gobsmacked when Prince Edward dropped the C-bomb on Charles in a brutal takedown.
Series 4 of the popular Netflix series, which follows the history of the royal family, was dropped yesterday and viewers of the show have already binge watched the whole thing.
Towards the end of episode eight the Earl of Wessex (played by Angus Imrie) called the Prince of Wales (portrayed by Josh O'Connor) "impressively c***ty" after Charles had a rant about how more important he is than Edward and Andrew on Andrew's wedding day.
The frowned-upon word has never been said on the drama before and fans flocked to Twitter to discuss it.
The vast majority seemed to enjoy the cheeky moment and praised the show for not shying away from the conflict within the royals.
One wrote: "Absolutely LIVING for the ep in #TheCrown in which Prince Edward says 'impressively c**t'"
Another said: "No way did Prince Edward drop the C bomb #TheCrown"
A third tweeted: "Prince Edward called Charles a c**t… sis I…. #TheCrown"
A fourth added: "Best line of #TheCrown season 4 so far is Prince Edward’s 'that was impressively c***y'"
Meanwhile a fifth thought: "I hope Charles did refer to Pizza boy as 'a fringe member who would never be King'. And that Edward did say that was 'impressively c***y' Highly unlikely though. But it's a nice thought. #TheCrown"
The cast of series 4 has a number of familiar star-studded faces from previous episodes and some newbies too.
Imrie and O'Connor are joined by Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II, Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip, Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Emma Corrin plays Princess Diana, Erin Doherty plays Princess Anne and Gillian Anderson as Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
Series 3 ended with Queen Elizabeth's Silver Jubilee as Princess Margaret attempted to take her own life.
The latest series is focused on the growing relationship between Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer.
But season 4 will also focus on Thatcher as the first female Prime Minister and the tension between her and the Queen – which eventually leads the country into the Falklands War.
Queen Elizabeth and her family continue to try and find an appropriate wife for Prince Charles, who is still unmarried at 30, and in doing so have safeguarded the line of succession.
