Princess Diana's friend Simone Simmons has voiced her disdain over the upcoming season of The Crown, which will feature the tragic death of the late Princess.
- Princess Diana's friend Simone is a psychic and alternative healer from London, who penned a book called Diana: The Last Word.
- She's joining other critics who've spoken out ahead of the new season of The Crown, set to premiere in. November.
- In other royal news, King Charles planning 'biggest royal tour in history' to carry on 'mantra from his late mother'.
Princess Diana's friend Simone, who says she used to speak on the phone to the Princess for up to 10 hours a day, voiced her concerns about The Crown season 5 ahead of its premiere in November 2022.
“These are cruel, sadistic and wicked people to recreate these moments. They are the lowest of the low," the psychic told The Sun (opens in new tab). "They are rewriting history as they go along and that’s what makes me very angry."
Simone added her concern for Prince William and Prince Harry saying, “Netflix are deliberately reviving the most painful time in the boys’ lives. It’s forcing them to relive the pain, agony, and psychological torment they suffered when their mother died. I think it’s disgusting and sick. Why are they setting out to upset William and Harry?"
Previously, speaking to the Telegraph (opens in new tab), Simone said of her relationship with Diana, "Yes, I'm a very odd person for some people to think of as Diana's best friend. But at least I'm honest, I'm sincere, and I would never put her wrong."
This isn't the first time Simone has spoken out publicly against people she believes did a disservice to her close friend and she even gave evidence to Lord Dyson’s inquiry investigating the infamous Martin Bashir interview with the late Princess.
“The makers of this program do not care about the heir to the throne and everything he has been through," Simone told The Sun. “Why do these callous, insensitive people feel the need to recreate that horrible day? They are going out of their way to hurt the Royal Family.”
It isn't just close personal friends of the Princess who are speaking out against Netflix, as public figures like former Prime Minister Sir John Major and actor Dame Judi Dench have also criticized the show.
