  • A new Netflix series documenting the life of Princess Diana could be ‘distressing’ for William and Harry, according to a royal expert.

    The four-part series, called “Being Me: Diana” is expected to hit Netflix at some point in the future.

    What will the Princess Diana documentary show?

    The documentary will apparently show unseen footage from Diana’s speeches between 1990 and 1993, as well as interviews with people close to her.

    It’s also thought that the documentary will focus on Diana’s mental health, eating disorders and her unhappy marriage to Prince Charles.

    Royal author, Leslie Carroll thinks this is going to be painful for Diana’s sons, Princes William and Harry.

    She said, “It might provide closure, or it might-open new wounds for the sons.

    “If an international ban on mines can be secured it means, looking far ahead, that the world may be a safer place for this generation's grandchildren.” – Princess Diana, 1997 Today in Angola The Duke of Sussex will retrace his mother’s steps to see the legacy of her work and how her connection with this community helped make the elimination of landmines a reality. In 1997 Diana Princess of Wales visited Huambo to bring global attention to the crisis of landmines and the people whose lives were being destroyed. Two decades later, the area has transformed from desolate and uninhabitable to lively and vibrant, with colleges, schools and small businesses. The Duke is humbled to be visiting a place and a community that was so special to his mother, and to recognise her tireless mission as an advocate for all those she felt needed her voice the most, even if the issue was not universally popular. Princess Diana’s visit helped change the course of history, and directly led to the Convention against Anti-Personal Landmines, also known as the Ottawa Treaty. Today, with the support of @thehalotrust, Angola now has a stated aim under the Treaty to be clear of known mines by 2025. Despite great progress, 60 million people worldwide still live in fear of landmines every day. During his visit today, The Duke will walk along the street which was once the minefield where his mother was famously pictured. #RoyalTourAfrica #RoyalVisitAngola Photo©️PA

    “It all depends on who is going to speak to the camera and what they might reveal.”

    She added, “Most people who are royal watchers already know that what really broke Diana’s heart was her husband’s marital infidelity. “His relationship with Camilla, which began years before he met Diana and never ended; and which drove her into the arms of other men.”

    Leslie Carroll also hints that Diana and Charles’ split affected the princes mental health.

    “For part of their young lives the siblings were raised shuttled between two households,” she explained.

    “Hearing their parents argue, and undoubtedly expected to take sides.

    “It doesn’t matter that they were princes, that’s not an emotionally healthy situation for any child.”

    A TV source added, “William and Harry will be very upset and angry. “It’s particularly distressing for Harry because he’s been working with Netflix.”
