A close friend of the late Princess Diana, Simone Simmons, said the hit drama "The Crown" risked forcing Princes William and Harry to remember the most painful time of their lives. She stated that the Netflix bosses are cruel, sadistic, and wicked people for recreating these moments. William and Harry are compelled to relive the pain, agony, and psychological trauma they suffered when their mother died in the accident.

The Sun reported that Simmons thinks it’s awful and sick. She asked why these people are trying to upset William and Harry. Simmons stated that the creators of this program do not care about the heir to the throne and everything he has endured. These people are hurting the Royal Family, she added.

The late Princess of Wales passed alongside boyfriend Dodi al-Fayed while traveling in a limousine in a Paris tunnel on Aug. 31, 1997. "The Crown" is scheduled to release its fifth season on Nov. 9 with 10 all-new episodes. It will recreate the tragic scenes of Diana and her last moments.

According to Mirror, the show chronicles the life of Queen Elizabeth II from the 1940s when she took the throne until more recent times. The longest-reigning monarch in British history passed away at the age of 96 at Balmoral Castle on Sept. 8. In the forthcoming season, trailers show that it will delve into some of the biggest controversies that hit the Royal Family, many of them concerning the newly appointed King.

One of the most controversial was when Charles, the Prince of Wales, was seen conspiring to expose the Queen and recommended that she should have been put to prison. Royal circles have asserted that the show smears the new monarch and is about to be part of a double-whammy Netflix attack on the Royal Family.

HELLO magazine reported that, according to Simmons, the program-makers resisted all calls for them to have a disclaimer at the start of each episode. Now, the time for Netflix to reconsider has come for the sake of a family and a nation so just bereaved. This is to show of respect to a ruler who served her people so dutifully for 70 years. It is also to maintain their own reputation in the eyes of their British subscribers.

Similarly, a number of viewers have joined calls for Netflix to have a disclaimer saying the show is a work of fiction before every episode starts. However, a spokesman for Netflix stated the show has always been a fictional dramatization of the Royal Family's inner workings.
