Prince Harry refuses to watch the new season of “The Crown,” which features the tragic death of his mother, Princess Diana, sources tell Page Six.
The final season of the Netflix hit portrays the last days of Diana amid her romance with film producer Dodi Fayed up until their deaths in a car crash in Paris on August 31, 1997.
The late princess (played by Elizabeth Debicki) is bizarrely depicted in some scenes as a ghost talking to her ex-husband, Prince Charles (Dominic West), and her mother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth (Imelda Staunton). Fayed (Khalid Abdalla) is also brought back as a specter.
Harry (Fflyn Edwards) is shown being woken up in bed and told the news his mother has died, with his older brother, Prince William (Rufus Kampa), watching on. The series also depicts the final conversation between Diana and Harry, who was 12 at the time of her death.
A source told Page Six: “Due to the sensitive nature of content in upcoming episodes of ‘The Crown,’ Prince Harry has understandably decided not to view this season.”
Royal onlookers have questioned how Harry — who, along with his wife, Meghan Markle, has a multi-million dollar deal with Netflix — could work with the streamer in light of “The Crown.”
