Did Prince Harry and Prince William watch ‘The Crown’? Author reveals why Princess Diana’s portrayal is ‘not easy’ for them

Elizabeth Debicki, who has been cast as Princess Diana in Netflix’s The Crown, has stirred mixed feelings among royalty fans. Particularly, Princes William and Harry have expressed personal connections to the portrayal of their late mother.

While Prince Harry has admitted to watching the show, Prince William has publicly denied doing so. However, reports have emerged suggesting that the future king feels “totally sickened by it.” Explaining this, Omid Scobie, the author of Endgame, a new royal tell-all, emphasized the public interest in the matter. As he tells Yahoo Entertainment, both sides acknowledge the global fascination with their family. Yet, Scobie doubts that the brothers have seen the show together, claiming that they may find it difficult to watch scenes with their late mother.

Endgame delves into the brothers’ conflicting views on the series, particularly its portrayal of Princess Diana’s infamous November 1995 Panorama interview. The investigation concluded that journalist Martin Bashir had deceived her, but the BBC dismissed the matter. Despite Bashir’s deceit, the story resurfaced years later, revealing the show’s depiction of the interview as the beginning of the end for the royal family’s adoration of The Crown.

Scobie believes that The Crown is pivotal in shaping people’s perceptions of the royal family. The fifth season, in particular, has highlighted personal and historical events, including the impactful Panorama interview. This interview isn’t new to the public, as its original airing brought forward the realities of royal family relations. In the wake of the show’s release, Princes William and Harry issued contrasting statements on the story, shedding light on their differing opinions.

Scobie’s book further elaborates on the brothers’ conflicting views. He notes that Prince William’s statement was likely influenced by royal aides and the narrative discredits his mother’s version of events. The differing takes from the brothers not only illustrate their contrasting opinions but also signify a turning point in their relationship.

All in all, Endgame explores the intricate dynamics within the royal family amidst the ever-growing public interest.
