After a lot of tension over showing Princess Diana’s death in Netflix’s “The Crown” Season 6, the production team has finally decided to handle her death “sensitively”.”The Crown” has opted not to show Princess Diana’s death and confirmed that “the exact moment of the crash impact will not be shown” featuring actors Elizabeth Debicki as the late Princess Diana.
Diana’s Death Scene Sparks Fury…
The producers behind “The Crown” were deciding to shoot the scenes resulting in Princess Diana’s death, but now, Netflix has confirmed that the show Diana’s crash will not be showcased in Season 6. A source says there is a strong desire within the production team “to get it right and handle [it] sensitively.”
Not only are Diana’s sons, Princes Wiliam and Harry, still alive and continuing to grieve but the British royal, dubbed “the People’s Princess” by former Prime Minister Tony Blair, continues to hold a special place in the public’s hearts some 25 years after she died in a Paris car crash at the age of 36.
Princess Diana (portrayed by Elizabeth Debicki) and her partner Dodi Al-Fayed (Khalid Abdalla) died in a car accident in Paris in 1997. “The Crown” Season 6 will capture the events and aftermath. A source closer to the production stated that the crew was “dreading” filming Diana’s death.
The source revealed that there is a “certain anxiety, a palpable sense of being slightly on edge” among the production team. “There’s bombshell sensitivity surrounding this one,” the unnamed source added. But finally, Netflix has announced that the upcoming season will focus on the moments leading up to the crash and the events that took place after the tragedy.
About the upcoming season, the source continued: “It’s a run-up. The car leaving The Ritz after midnight with paparazzi in pursuit and then the aftermath with the British Ambassador to France swinging into action with the Foreign Office and then the subsequent constitutional aftermath.”
In the season Prince Charles, portrayed by Dominic West, will be showcased arriving in Paris to receive the People’s Princess’s body while Mohamed Al-Fayed (Salim Daw) will undergo “casual racism” from French authorities when taking possession of his son’s casket.
Mystery Surrounding Diana’s Death…
Princess Diana may have gone, but her memory lives on the in hearts of the people she was loved by, and well, there were so many! Diana passed away on August 31, 1997, in the Pont de l’Alma tunnel in Paris while her driver was fleeing the paparazzi. The crash also resulted in the deaths of her companion Dodi Fayed and the driver, Henri Paul. Bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones was the only survivor of the crash but suffered a serious head injury.
Conspiracy theories surrounding her death claim that it was Prince Charles who plotted her murder. Well, she certainly made several enemies due to her bold behaviours. In August, a mysterious note dubbed the “Mischon Note” was revealed in The Diana Investigations, a four-part Discovery+ docuseries chronicling the British and French inquiries into the death of Princess Diana.
The “Mishcon Note” made a startling revelation stating that Diana had predicted her car crash, two years before her death and well, named her husband Prince Charles as the man behind the mishap. Princess Diana informed her lawyer, Victor Mischon, in 1995 that efforts to “get rid” of her would be attempted in the following year, and also mentioned “car accident” as one of the possible means. Will Netflix show an unbiased version of these events? Well, I think they might.
