Lady Di’s friend Jemima Khan stops collaborating with ‘The Crown’ because she believes the fifth season is not told with “respect or compassion”

BarcelonaJemima Khan, a close friend of Princess Diana, will stop helping in the script The Crown because the story is not being treated “with the respect or compassion” that at least she would expect. Khan says she was called in to help the show’s creator, Peter Morgan, write the script for the fifth season, which includes the years before Diana’s death in a car accident in Paris in 1997, but that, given the intentions of the authors of Netflix fiction, has decided to decline to remain part of the team.

Khan, who is a film producer, was part of Diana’s social circle in those years that the series now wants to talk about. Although he has never spoken in public on the subject, he would have stated in Sunday Times that “it was very important” to her that “the last years of her friend’s life” be “portrayed with precision and compassion, as has not always happened in the past.” This period, which she says would not be well portrayed in the series, includes Diana’s idylls with heart surgeon Hasnat Khan and Dodi Al Fayed, son of billionaire Harrods owner Mohamed Al Fayed. It was also then that there was Martin Bashir’s interview, in which the princess, referring to Camilla Parker Bowles, said, “There were three of us in this marriage, it was a little crowded.”

Khan says that when he realized the stories were going in a direction he disagreed with, he asked for all of his contributions to be removed and asked not to appear in any written credit. “In 2019 Peter Morgan asked me to co – write the fifth season of the series The Crown, especially those episodes that concerned the last years of Princess Diana before she died, he explained. After much thought, without ever having spoken publicly about any of this before, I decided to contribute to it. ”

“We worked together on the outline and the scripts from September 2020 to February 2021. When our co-writing agreement was not respected and when I realized that that particular story would not necessarily be told with respect or compassion I had hoped for, I asked that all my contributions be removed from the series and I declined to appear on any credit. ” The start of the season in question is expected for November 2022. Australian actress Elizabeth Debicki will play Diana, taking over from Emma Corrin.
