THE new series of The Crown is set to dredge up every painful detail of King Charles’s marriage to the late Princess Diana — just as the nation rallies around the new monarch.
It rakes over some of the most intimate aspects of their crumbling marriage in the early 1990s and portrays the then Prince of Wales as petty, cold and deceitful.
The new series is likely to upset Prince William, after he said the controversial Panorama interview should never be aired again
The fifth series, which starts on streaming giant Netflix next month, is also likely to upset Prince William who is seen, along with brother Prince Harry, being caught in a psychological tug of war between their royal parents.
A TV insider said: “This couldn’t have come at a more delicate time for the new King and his Queen Consort, particularly as they’re riding high in the minds of the public.
Prince William has already said he believes the controversial Panorama interview in which his late mother featured in 1995 should never be aired again.
But Netflix has devoted an entire episode to it.
