It’s not a documentary! Princess Diana’s story line on season 5 of The Crown wasn’t entirely accurate — especially when it came to her Panorama interview, a royal expert exclusively reveals to Us Weekly.
“Look, it’s drama. It’s fiction that’s somewhat based on fact,” royal expert Nick Bullen tells Us of the Netflix series’ latest installment, which premiered in November.
The True Royalty TV editor in chief explains that the Martin Bashir interview, which originally took place with Diana in 1995, wasn’t depicted as truthful as possible on The Crown.
“Virtually all of it was — certainly — sort of widened the mark,” Bullen says of the two-episode arc. “I think they didn’t even go far enough in looking at how Bashir got the interview. I mean, they sort of touched on it, you know, it was incredibly fraudulent what went on there.”
