While The Crown received ample acclaim for various aspects, it faced a tidal wave of criticism for its portrayal of Princess Diana. Season 5 ventured deep into Diana’s life story, a narrative baton that Season 6 would soon grasp. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had repeatedly shed light on the real-life truths surrounding this period. However, the show did not just stick to the script but dived into uncharted waters, weaving ghosts, swirling pregnancy rumors, and even conjuring murder theories.

The repercussions of these creative liberties came back to haunt the Duke of Sussex. A royal author, in a dramatic expose, aired Prince Harry’s alleged Netflix deals, asserting that his silence on the matter was far from palatable.

In the lead-up to the final season of The Crown, the way Princess Diana was depicted sparked a firestorm of controversy. It caught the attention of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Lady Colin Campbell, known for her extravagant lifestyle, did not hold back. As per GB News, she lambasted Netflix for supposedly sealing Prince Harry’s lips with a tantalizing deal. Her insinuation that the Duke might have secretly tuned in to The Crown, a show infamous within royal circles, added an intriguing layer to the drama.

Lady Campbell and Phil Dampier were not shy about voicing their concerns over the show, delving into conspiracy theories encircling Princess Diana’s untimely demise, such as whispers of pregnancy and foul play. Lady Campbell, a fierce defender of Princess Diana’s memory, vehemently debunked these notions. She boldly stated that the princess would have emerged unscathed had she fastened her seatbelt.

In the fourth season of The Crown, Princess Diana, brilliantly embodied by Emma Corrin, stole the spotlight. Nevertheless, season 5 was disappointing for Princess Diana fans. It portrayed the unusual initial encounter between a youthful Diana and Prince Charles. As per Vice, it steered clear of romanticizing it into a fairy tale. The fact that Prince Charles was courting Princess Diana’s elder sister at the time added a twist of fate that might have steered her clear of a less-than-charmed destiny.

The royal wedding that stitched together a politically tumultuous nation, left head scratches over Princess Diana’s meteoric rise as a global beauty icon. Despite The Crown painting a nuanced picture, the prevalent belief is that she weathered the chilly winds of Buckingham Palace. The tale of depiction in The Crown beyond season four remained an enigmatic question. Furthermore, season six holds the key to unraveling the narrative tapestry.
