Diana in The Crown: Disturbing scenes about her bulimia will shock William and Harry

The Crown’s fourth season will be marked by Diana’s bulimia. A warning precedes episodes that contain scenes that could shock her children William and Harry.

“The following episodes contain scenes of an eating disorder that may disturb some viewers. “This is the warning that appears at the beginning of three of the ten episodes in the fourth season of Netflix’s The Crown. Among those who might be shocked are Princes William and Harry.

Because the producers of the program decided not to hide the bulimia of their mother, Princess Diana, played on screen by actress Emma Corrin. We see her vomiting, among other things. For the first time, Netflix has decided to warn its audience, which heralds some particularly disturbing images. “This reflects how explicit the images are and how sensitively they treat them,” a television expert told the Sun.

According to the tabloid, she was seen vomiting in the bathroom in one of the scenes when she turned on the faucet so that the sound of running water could hide the truth. “The producers worked closely with the eating disorder charity, BEAT, to ensure that their depiction of Princess Diana’s bulimia in season four was both accurate and sensitive,” said a spokesperson for The Crown production company.

The scenes are very realistic and the sons of Diana would never have liked to see them in a television series whose season tells the life of the royal family from 1979 to 1990. “William and other members of the royal family are uncomfortable with this period. They’re furious,” a source told The Sun.

That would have heightened tensions between the two brothers, with William blaming Harry for collaborating with Netflix on another project. Seeing their mother having a fit of bulimia in a series would have shocked Princes William and Harry, but The Crown is merely staging facts told by the principal.

I ate everything I could find

Diana’s eating disorder is thought to have begun shortly before her marriage to Prince Charles in 1981. “I started being bulimic a week after we got engaged (and it took me almost a decade to recover). My husband put his hand on my waist and said, ‘Oh, you’re a bit plump now, aren’t you?’ and that triggered something inside me,” the Princess of Wales told journalist Andrew Morton.

The Princess of Wales told journalist Andrew Morton, who wrote in his book Diana: Her True Story that she had “a big binge the night before [her marriage to Prince Charles]. “I ate everything I could find, which amused my sister Jane,” said the one who was happy to be sick because she “thought it was distressing.
