The producers behind the hit Netflix series The Crown are preparing to shoot the scenes leading up to Princess Diana’s death, which is causing some anxiety among the cast and crew. The scenes are due to be shot in the next two weeks with Elizabeth Debicki playing Diana. A source said that 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 people’s hearts 25 years after she died in a car crash in Paris at the age of 36.
Although it is understood that makers of The Crown do not plan to show the moment of the the crash, they will portray scenes leading up to it and its aftermath.
The Crown, which is currently shooting its sixth and supposedly final season, has always been innovative about which episodes of the British royal family’s life it portrays on screen, often staying away from anything obvious in favour of more intimate moments.
