A new Netflix documentary about the late Princess of Wales, Diana, might deal massive blows on her sons, Princes William and Harry according to a royal author.

Express UK reports that this documentary will tell the story of Princess Diana's tumultuous marriage to Prince Charles, with its focus on how It affected her mental health. According to the publication, the highlight of the documentary will be never-seen-before footages of the princess’ speeches between 1990 and 1992.
While Netflix has not endorsed the project titled, “Being Me: Diana” yet, it might also come as a huge blow to Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan.

It will also delve into the mental and home struggles of the American-Born Princess and even detail how she almost took her life four times among other painstaking details.
Unfortunately, the news of the documentary was accepted with mixed reactions as Royal author, Leslie Carroll, believes it might have a negative impact on her sons, Prince Willam and Prince Harry.

The royal author explained that given that princes had a hard time coming to terms with their parents’ divorce and grew up with an unhealthy emotional situation, there is no telling what their reaction would be to the new docudrama. Speaking about the program, she said:
“It might provide closure or it might-open new wounds for the sons. It all depends on who is going to speak to the camera and what they might reveal."

According to The Sun, while Netflix has not endorsed the project titled, “Being Me: Diana” yet, it might also come as a huge blow to Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan as Harry worked with the film streaming company on "Thomas The Tank Engine 75th Anniversary Special" and might be unaware of the new project.
The Daily Mail has also noted that the timing of the project might be a little off because of the tension in the royal household following The Duke and Duchess of Sussex exit from the royal family and the effects of the pandemic on them at large.

While all these speculations are making rounds, the Cosmopolitan has advised that we keep looking out for a reaction or statement from the British monarchy until the project is complete.
The late Princess of Wales’ story, which has been recounted several times by various media houses will be made into a four-part series by the television company, DSP, and the project will air on Netflix after its completion.
