The Telegraph recently reported how upset and “deeply frustrated” Prince William is by Netflix for recreating his late mother–Princess Diana’s controversial interview with Martin Bashir for the next series of their show The Crown. The drama which follows the reign of Queen Elizabeth and the royal family’s personal relationships is said to recreate the moment Diana told the BBC “there were three of us in this marriage.”


Now, the publishing is reporting that the Duke of Cambridge is frustrated at the “commercialization” of the “false narrative” around his late mother’s life. While it is claimed that BBC has refused to give Netflix permission to use the interview, an interpretation of that can be recreated. 


This isn’t the first time William has opened up about the infamous interview. Back in May, William and his brother Prince Harry both released statements about the Panorama interview. If you didn’t know, back in May, the interviewer Bashir along with BBC were found “guilty of deceit” following a six-month investigation and after multiple complaints from Diana’s brother, Earl Spencer, claiming the people’s princess was tricked into participating in the bombshell 1995 interview with Bashir with the use of forged documents. After the investigation was complete, William claimed that Bashir had “let my mother down.”


In his statement, the Duke of Cambridge said via Daily Mail: “It is my firm view that this Panorama programme holds no legitimacy and should never be aired again. It effectively established a false narrative that, for over a quarter of a century, has been commercialized by the BBC and others. This settled narrative now needs to be addressed by the BBC and anyone else who has written or intends to write about these events. In an era of fake news, public service broadcasting and a free press have never been more important. These failings, identified by investigative journalists, not only let my mother down, and my family down; they let the public down too.”
