William does not approve of the show depicting a full episode about Princess Diana's shocking sitdown with BBC

Prince William is irked with Netflix over a frustrating decision the makers of Crown made.

The Duke of Cambridge does not approve of the show depicting a full episode about Princess Diana's shocking sitdown in the BBC's Panorama.

Earlier he said the interview holds "no legitimacy" in his view.

In May, William said the interview should "never be aired again", and a royal insider told the Duke's words "still stand."

"BBC employees: lied and used fake documents to obtain the interview with my mother; made lurid and false claims about the Royal Family which played on her fears and fuelled paranoia; displayed woeful incompetence when investigating complaints and concerns about the programme, and were evasive in their reporting to the media and covered up what they knew from their internal investigation," William said.

He added: "It is my view that the deceitful way the interview was obtained substantially influenced what my mother said.

The sitdown "effectively established a false narrative," William continued, "which, for over a quarter of a century, has been commercialised by the BBC and others."
