The Crown Season 6 Producers Tease How Netflix Drama Will Depict Princess Diana’s Death


The creators of The Crown, Andy Harries and Suzanne Mackie, assured fans that the depiction of Princess Diana's death in Season 6 was handled with great care and sensitivity. Speaking at the Edinburgh TV Festival, Harries and Mackie revealed new details about the upcoming final season of the hit show. Scenes depicting Princess Diana's tragic passing were filmed over a two-week period in October 2022 and will be featured in the early episodes of Season 6. 

Mackie emphasized the thoughtfulness and respect with which the sensitive subject matter was approached, praising Elizabeth Debicki's portrayal of the beloved princess as "extraordinary" and "considerate.



Despite the recent passing of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022, Harries confirmed that the production of Season 6 was not fundamentally altered, but rather served as a poignant tribute to the late monarch. Writer Peter Morgan's Season 6 is described as a "love letter" to the Queen, offering a powerful and respectful depiction of her legacy.

The upcoming season will also explore Prince William's university years and his romance with Catherine Middleton, as well as featuring Prince Charles' second marriage to Camilla Parker Bowles. The Crown Season 6 is set to premiere in late 2023.
