The first episode of the 6th season of the historical drama series The Crown was released on Netflix on Thursday, November 16.
The remaining 6 episodes of the series will meet the audience on December 14.
The first 4 episodes cover the events that led to Diana’s death in a car accident with her boyfriend Dodi Al Fayed on August 31, 1997, at the age of 36.
In the series that will bid farewell to the screens this season, Princess Diana is played by Elizabeth Debicki and Dodi Fayed is played by Khalid Abdalla.
“IT WAS DIFFICULT PROFESSIONALLY AND HUMANLY”
In his article published in The Sun on November 19, titled “The Crown shows the pathetic exploitation of the angelic Diana. But I know she can be a hypocritical devil, too,” Morgan said that not everything in the series reflects the truth.
Morgan, who was the editor-in-chief of the Daily Mirror when Princess Diana died, said that the accident was the biggest and most stressful news he had made in his career.
In the series, Dodi’s father, Egyptian businessman Mohammed Al Fayed, is depicted as a figure who entraps the couple for the sake of his war against the British Royal Family.
It even appears on the screen that father Fayed leaked information to an Italian photographer named Mario Brenna to take images of the couple without their knowledge.
BUT ACCORDING TO MORGAN, EVENTS DID NOT HAPPEN THAT WAY
Morgan stated that the Daily Mirror’s sister newspaper, the Sunday Mirror, bought the photographs from another photographer named Jason Fraser.
Stating that it is important for the information to come out, Morgan said, “In the series, Diana is shown as an angelic figure who is exploited by both the media and the Fayed family,” and added:
BUT I KNOW HE’S A HYPOCRITE LITTLE DEVIL
Regarding Diana, with whom he once had a friendly relationship, journalist Morgan said, “She was a master manipulator when it came to exploiting her love life and the media.”
Stating that Diana also had a nasty and hypocritical streak that was never shown in The Crown, Morgan said that the princess knew how to use the media to suit her own agenda.
