The Crown boss has handled Princess Diana’s death ‘sensitively’ in new series

The Crown: Royal expert criticises ‘subtle manipulations’

The Crown’s boss has promised to handle the tragic death of Princess Diana “sensitively” in the upcoming series of the Netflix favourite.

Executive producer Suzanne Mackie told fans what they can expect in the sixth series, stating: “The show might be big and noisy, but we’re not.

“We’re thoughtful people and we’re sensitive people.”

Speaking at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, she added: “And so there was a very, very careful, long, long, long conversation about how we do it – and I hope, you know, the audience will judge it in the end, but I think it’s been delicately, thoughtfully recreated.”

Elizabeth Debicki, best known for starring in The Great Gatsby and Guardian of The Galaxy Volume Three, will be taking on the role of the late princess once again.

Suzanne described Debicki as an “extraordinary actress” who took over from Emma Corrin.

She continued: “She was so thoughtful, considerate and loved Diana.

“So there was a huge amount of respect from us all. I hope that’s evident when you see it.”

Series producer Andy Harries also shared his thoughts when asked if the passing of the late Queen Elizabeth II has impacted the show in any way.

“I think that the passing of Her Majesty undoubtedly impacted on us all and [writer Peter Morgan] in particular,” he replied.

He added: “It didn’t change fundamentally, but it did change in a sense and when you see it I think you’ll know what I mean.”

Suzanne recalled how writer Peter Morgan told her the show is a “love letter to the Queen”.

She added: “I remember when she died, the news, and you can feel that it was bound to happen on that day. It was just an awful moment of when, and I couldn’t get a hold of [Mr Morgan] for hours.”

The Crown debuted in 2016 and has so far aired five successful seasons on the streaming giant.

Season six will reportedly be the last and will air later this year on Netflix.

The final season is expected to show the premiership of former Prime Minister Tony Blair and the early relationship between Prince William and Kate Middleton – now the Prince and Princess of Wales.

The Crown seasons one to five are available to watch on Netflix.
