The Crown bosses on edge as explosive new season risks upsetting King Charles and Royal Family | The Sun

THE Crown bosses have reportedly been put "on edge" as the new season delves into the fateful moments that led to the death of Princess Diana.

The majority of the scenes will be shot in two weeks with actress Elizabeth Debicki portraying Diana.


Peter Morgan, creator of The Crown, has made clear that the crash itself will not be filmed.

On August 31, 1997, Diana and boyfriend Dodi Al-Fayed were riding in the passenger seats of a Mercedes-Benz, driven by Henri Paul, a security officer at The Ritz.

Seated beside him was Trevor Rees-Jones, who worked as a security consultant for businessman Mohamed Al-Fayed, Dodi’s father.

Dodi and Paul were killed instantly, while Diana was alive when freed from the wreckage but died four hours later.

“We’ve been dreading getting to this point,"a source on the production told Deadline.

"The countdown is two weeks and while we’re calmly carrying on it’s fair to acknowledge that there’s a certain anxiety – a palpable sense of being slightly on edge.

"I mean, there’s bombshell sensitivity surrounding this one."

The source reiterated that the supposed collision between the Mercedes-Benz and a Fiat at the entrance to the Pont de l’Alma will not be filmed.

Instead, the show will chart events before and after.
