LOS ANGELES, Nov 12, (Agencies): “The Crown” enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the culmination of the hit Netflix drama’s final season, which delves into the life of Queen Elizabeth II during some of the monarchy’s most tumultuous times. The sixth and ultimate season unfolds in two stages, with the initial five episodes launching on Thursday, followed by the remaining installments on Dec 14.

One of the season’s pivotal events is the heartbreaking death of Princess Diana on Aug 31, 1997, a moment that profoundly shook the British monarchy. The series, which meticulously recounts the last weeks of Diana’s life post her tumultuous divorce from the current King Charles III until her tragic demise, depicts the princess (played by Elizabeth Debicki) grappling with overwhelming media attention.

In a trailer for the new season, the queen confronts Diana, stating, “You have finally managed to turn everything upside down in this house—it’s nothing less than a revolution.” Diana responds that revolution was never her intention. The narrative unfolds to the tragic crash of the BMW carrying Diana and her lover, Dodi Al-Fayed, into a pillar of the Alma Tunnel in Paris.

The aftermath of Diana’s death witnessed an immense outpouring of public grief. Queen Elizabeth II faced widespread criticism for her delayed response to the loss of her daughter-in-law.

Diana’s enduring global legacy stems from her compassion toward individuals with HIV/AIDS and landmine victims, earning her a near-sainted status worldwide over 25 years later. Notably, her memory persists as the “other woman” in her marriage, Camilla, is now Queen alongside Charles.

While the royal family has refrained from public comments on the series, Season Six has stirred controversy with the revelation that Diana appears as a “unique” representation, denying she is a “ghost in the traditional sense,” according to series creator Peter Morgan.

Apart from Diana’s story, Season Six, spanning 1997 to 2005, is anticipated to cover Tony Blair’s tenure as prime minister, Prince Edward and Sophie Rhys-Jones’s wedding, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s blossoming romance, and the marriage of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles.

“The Crown” has faced criticism before, prompting Netflix to add a disclaimer last year, stating the show is a work of fiction.
