Prince Harry doesn’t plan on watching The Crown—and it turns out that his friends won’t be watching it for him, either.
As reported by Page Six, Prince Harry won’t be watching the new season of The Crown, featuring the tragic death of his mother, Princess Diana.
The closing season of the Netflix series depicts Diana’s final days amid her romance with film producer Dodi Fayed until their car crash death in Paris on August 31, 1997.
A source told Page Six, “Due to the sensitive nature of content in upcoming episodes of ‘The Crown,’ Prince Harry has understandably decided not to view the season.”
Harry, 39, has been candid about his struggles following his mother’s loss and has explained how his mental health was affected.
Earlier reports claimed that Harry’s friends would watch the show on his behalf to warn him of any traumatic content. However, the reports were later dismissed as false.
According to the source, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have no “ill feelings towards the show’s creators of Netflix.” The insider also maintains that Harry and Meghan Markle weren’t “consulted by anyone affiliated with the series or Netflix.”
The publication also reports that Harry’s brother, William, will not be viewing The Crown.
