William ‘livid’ at Harry’s Netflix deal with show set to feature Diana’s bulimia

Prince William is reportedly “livid” at Prince Harry’s new deal with Netflix – with a new series of The Crown set to feature Princess Diana’s bulimia.

Series four of the hit royal show, set to be released in November, will include Diana’s struggle with the eating disorder in the 1980s.

Actress Emma Corrin, 24, will vomit into a toilet after eating in one scene, according to The Sun.

A TV insider told the newspaper: “William and other senior royals are incredibly uncomfortable about this drama and livid Harry is now in partnership with the company that’s airing it.

“It’s the latest in a long line of flashpoints between the brothers, but there are few more sensitive subjects than the plight of their mother.

“Viewers of The Crown — which is a candid look at the Queen’s reign — wouldn’t expect the writers to ignore something which is now a matter of public record.

“But the Royal Family also wouldn’t expect one of their own to take money made by the profits of shows like this.”

A spokesman for Left Bank Pictures, which makes The Crown for Netflix, said: “Producers worked closely with the eating disorder charity, BEAT, to ensure that their portrayal of Princess Diana’s bulimia in Season Four was both ­accurate to the disorder and sensitively handled.”

Earlier this month, Harry and Meghan announced their multi-million dollar deal with Netflix.

They will produce documentaries, docu-series, feature films, scripted shows and children's programming.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex want to create “content that informs but also gives hope” and “inspirational family programming”.

Meghan is reportedly pitching a Black Lives Matter documentary as part of the deal.

She is said to have been "hugely inspired" and "blown away" by the movement's co-founder Patrisse Cullors.

A source told the DailyMirror : "She thinks her story needs to be told – and she would love to be the one to make it."

Days after the Netflix announcement, a spokesman for Harry confirmed he had paid back the millions used to renovate Frogmore Cottage.

The bill, thought be £2.4 million for work that took place from 2018-19, was covered by taxpayers through the Sovereign Grant – a fund provided by the government to the monarch every year to cover royal duties.
