(LONDON) JUST IN: A contributor on Netflix’s hit series The Crown has asked that her input into the series be removed over a disagreement about the portrayal of Princess Diana #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.10: Jemima Khan, a friend of the late Princess of Wales, agreed to assist in finessing the storyline for the fifth season of the award-winning drama back in 2019: But a year out from the expected release of season five, she’s stepped back and declined credit for the writing of the show: Here’s what we know about how the situation unfolded.

#AceDailyNews says according to ABC News Report: The Crown contributor Jemima Khan steps away from production, says Princess Diana’s story not handled ‘compassionately’ in our co-writing agreement was not honoured, and when I realised that particular storyline would not necessarily be told as respectfully or compassionately as I had hoped, I requested that all my contributions be removed from the series and I declined a credit,” she said in a statement.

Who is Jemima Khan and how is she linked to Diana?

Jemima Khan (nee Goldsmith) was formerly a journalist, and married Pakistani cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan in 1995. 

She’s also a screenwriter and producer, and founded content company Instinct Productions.

Jemima and Diana, Princess of Wales were friends, and a former partner of Diana’s, surgeon Hasnat Khan, is a cousin of her ex-husband, Imran (who became the Prime Minister of Pakistan in 2018). 

Diana travelled to Pakistan multiple times throughout the 1990s to spend time with the Khans.

How did Khan get involved with The Crown and why is she leaving?

Khan said in a statement to the Sunday Times that she was approached by writer Peter Morgan in 2019, and asked to co-write the fifth season of the hugely popular drama. 

“We worked together on the outline and scripts from September 2020 until February 2021,” her statement read. 

However, a spokesperson for The Crown told UK media that Khan was never actually contracted as a writer on the series. 

“She has been part of a wide network of well-informed and varied sources who have provided extensive background information to our writers and research team,” the spokesperson said

Khan revealed that she has stepped away from the show because of the way Diana’s storyline was handled.

It’s unclear if Khan is referring to a particular event within the show or if she’s unhappy with Diana’s portrayal throughout the season. 

What do we know about The Crown season five?

We know it’s expected to focus on the royal family — particularly the relationship between Prince Charles and Diana — through the 1990s, up until her death in 1997. 

Australian actress Elizabeth Debicki stars as Princess Diana, withDominic West to play Prince Charles. 

An official release date hasn’t been confirmed yet, but actress Imelda Staunton, who will play Queen Elizabeth II, confirmed in a preview videothat season five is expected to hit screens in November 2022.

“I’m delighted to be here, inheriting the role of Queen Elizabeth from two outstanding actresses, most recently the wonderful Olivia Coleman, and who could forget the actress who originated the part, Claire Foy,” she said. 

“I will do my utmost to maintain the very high standard they set.”
