Princess Diana’s ‘love of her life’ notably missing from latest season of The Crown | Royal | News

Princess Diana’s former love Major James Hewitt appeared in season four of the popular Netflix drama, The Crown, but appears to have been left out of the latest season, which follows the breakdown of Diana’s marriage to then-Prince Charles. James’ notable absence from season five of The Crown was discussed on the latest episode of Royally Us.

Host Christina Garibaldi read out a ‘Royal Watcher’ comment from Barbara, a viewer of the show, which pointed out James’ absence.

Ms Garibaldi, quoting Barbara’s comment, said: “One of the things that stood out to me was [that] there was no mention of James Hewitt who was in Diana’s life for a long time and she described him as the love of her life.”

Her co-host Christine Ross agreed: “As soon as I read it, I was thinking to myself you’re so right.

“How did you leave out this entire, you know, chapter of this drama.”

She added: They play a little bit in the last season on Diana having her own affairs but I think The Crown, they’re trying to depict a larger narrative this season and so they’ve left out things that didn’t tell the story that they were trying to get to at the end.

“Which is a shame because we’ve missed so many really interesting historical moments.”

Diana was questioned about her affair in her 1995 interview with Martin Bashir for BBC’s Panorama.

During the interview, Diana was quizzed about her marriage and the pressures she felt from marrying a future monarch.

The couple separated mere months before Diana’s death in August 1997.

Diana had since embarked on a relationship with film producer Dodi Fayed, who died with her in a tragic car crash in Paris.

The pair had just returned from a holiday to Italy, and Diana was due to return to the UK to reunite with her sons shortly after.
