Sources claim Prince William feels The Crown is cashing in on his mother’s “deceitful” interview

Elizabeth Debicki plays Princess Diana in the Netflix series, which will break down the interview and its aftermath

He’s previously said it “let my mum, family and Britain down”.

But, The Crown‘s next season will soon depict the interview and the “all-out war” caused by the breakdown of Diana and then Prince Charles’ marriage.

The “deceitful” manner that the interview, in which the late Princess told Martin Bashir that “there were three of us in this marriage”, was obtained and its aftermath, will also be shown.

But, Prince William has said the interview should never be shown again as it held no legitimacy.

He also said it had established a false narrative, commercialised by the BBC and others for more than 25 years.

The Prince has also confessed it brought him “indescribable sadness” that the interview had added to the “fear, paranoia and isolation” his mother felt in the years leading up to her death.

The Telegraph reported a source said he had made his feelings about it “very clear” and that a fictional depiction would be “met in the way you would expect”.

They added that, given the strong personal statement he had made, one could understand if he was angered about the “dramatisation of it for financial gain”.

HOAR Online attempted to contact the Royal Family press office for comment.

Tim Davie, director-general of the BBC, apologised to the King, Prince
William and Prince Harry earlier this year “for the way in which Princess Diana was deceived and the subsequent impact on all their lives”.

He said that because of the “shocking way” the interview was obtained, it would never be shown on the BBC in whole or in part again.

However, Netflix has defied such concerns to depict the interview in the forthcoming series, which is released on November 9, with Elizabeth Debicki as Diana.

The penultimate season of the drama covers the period from 1991 until 1996, with Diana and Charles’ marriage the main plot running throughout all 10 episodes.

And Diana’s relationship, as well as on Camilla Parker Bowles, could not have come at a worse time for the King, whose popularity has surged since his accession.

A friend of His Majesty has described the drama as “exploitative” and said Netflix would have “no qualms about mangling people’s reputations”.
