Reactions on social media

Some Twitter users were astonished the character of Diana might feature in scenes after she had supposed to have died.

One complained: “The Crown has Diana appearing to Charles and forgiving him, is that for real? How disgusting using her image like this to whitewash and gaslight Diana.”

Another staggered user posted: “Honestly have difficulty in believing the final series of The Crown will be featuring Princess Diana as a ghost. It’s a provocative show but has never gone in for that kind of fantastical nonsense…so far, anyway.”

“Feels like exploitation of Lady Diana,” someone else claimed.

But another person argued: “The Crown isn’t real.”
