Princess Diana will finally appear in the new series of The Crown on Netflix, but her entrance could cause more pain for sons William and Harry.

Series Four of The Crown, which drops on Netflix on Sunday, will focus on the events of the 1980s. 

This is the decade that saw Diana Spencer join the royal family and the series will focus on her marriage to Prince Charles.

Why will Princess Diana featuring in the crown be hurtful for Prince William and Prince Harry?

British royal biographer Penny Juror explained: "After she died, they pleaded with people to let their mother rest in peace because they found it incredibly upsetting.

“I think it’s been really incredibly hard for them.

“Maybe they just put the shutters down and they don’t watch and they can close their ears to it all, I don’t know.

“But I really feel for them.”

While Nick Bullen, editor-in-chief of True Royalty TV, added: “I wouldn’t want to watch my parents’ marriage play out on television.”
