BOSSES at Netflix’s The Crown are facing fury after production plans to recreate Princess Diana’s tragic final moments in Paris.
Members of the crew are reportedly feeling “very uncomfortable” and are “pushing back on the ideas being tabled” by senior staff.
Scenes are set to focus around the Princess of Wales’ fateful trip to Paris in 1997 where she was killed in a car crash in the Pont de l’Alma tunnel.
Dodi Fayed, Diana’s partner, and Henri Paul, the driver of the Mercedes-Benz W140 S-Class, were pronounced dead at the scene.
“To be going back to Paris and turning Diana’s final days and hours into a drama feels very uncomfortable,” said an insider.
“Finally, some of the crew members are pushing back on the ideas being tabled,” they told The Sun.
“The show always tried to present a fictional version of royal history with as much sensitivity as possible. But lately, as things get closer to the present day, it feels harder to strike that balance.
“With some of those moments still so fresh and upsetting, it feels as though a line is being crossed. Some production staff are now starting to speak up about their feelings.”
A statement from a Netflix spokesperson seen by OMG-News.com clarifies that the show’s segment will not show any gory details – but doesn’t say the crash won’t be included.
They said: “The exact moment of the crash impact will not be shown.”
