- The Crown is filming season 6 for release in 2023
- The season's time period includes the death of Princess Diana
- New details have emerged on scenes related to the tragedy
The sixth season will mark the end of the Netflix series The Crown. Those final episodes are already causing controversy.
Among other things, the next season will deal with the death of Princess Diana – and in great detail, it has now been revealed.
People present on the set of the streaming series have spoken out to The Sun, explaining how incredibly uncomfortable they were with the scenes.
How The Crown is reportedly approaching Diana's death
For instance, The Crown will show how doctors struggle to save the life of the Princess in a blood-stained operating room. There are also scenes at Lady Di's open casket.
A source reports: "They actually made Elizabeth [Debicki] climb into a coffin and play dead as Diana.
"Viewers will see a French priest administering the last rites for Diana as she is pronounced deceased."
The insider further explains: "Princes William and Harry never saw their mother dead in a coffin and they shouldn’t have to watch this. Nor should the British public [...]
"Everyone was very uncomfortable doing the shoot. It is obscene and should be banned from broadcast."
Another insider recalled the shooting of the hospital scene: "Cast members [were] visibly upset at what they were being asked to do.
"Many believe a fuss must be made to protect Wills and Harry in particular from more upset."
The extent to which these statements are true will presumably only become clear when The Crown season 6 is released.
After all, the streaming giant usually keeps quiet about its projects until the very end.
