Prince Harry has been urged to leave the giant streaming platform Netflix over their portrayal of Princess Diana in the drama series The Crown. The Sun has exclusively reported on the recent happenings around the series. Princess Diana’s friend Jemima Khan has already left her advisory role and Harry has been asked to give up his 100 million pound deal with the platform.

Jemima Khan, a close confidante of Princess Diana, was an advisor on the series but left the show. The 47-year old film and documentary producer demanded that the series removes her name from the credits. She said that Prince Diana’s story was not being told “as respectfully and or compassionately” as she hoped and that’s the reason why she said that her contributions should be cut from the show.

Angela Levin, who is the author of Harry: A Biography of a Prince said that he had “remained absolutely silent about Netflix.” She believed that he should tear up his Netflix deal and “make a stand for his mother.”



She also questioned what was more important, whether it was money or whether it was defending his mother. She found it astonishing that he couldn’t “find his voice on this.”

Ingrid Seward, editor of Majesty Magazine said that she didn’t think that “Harry gets it.” She presumed that he didn’t think it through when he made a deal with Netflix. She added that Meghan would have got it and she was “not an idiot.”

She also said that he was not totally oblivious about the issue as he had talked about The Crown during his bus interview with James Corden.

Earlier, another Netflix show called Diana: The Musical had been criticized for its “degrading” portrayal of Princess Diana. The fifth series of The Crown is expected to focus on Diana’s final years before her death in 1997. Family and friends are expecting Netflix to portray her unfavorably, once again.
