Prince Harry has been urged to ask Netflix to scrap the proposed screening of a stage show about his mother, Princess Diana.
Earlier this month, the streaming giant announced plans to air Diana: A New Musical, before it’s Broadway opening next year.
However, the musical is set to cause a major stir with the British royal family, as it features a number of controversial scenes that could shed a negative light on Prince Charles and the Queen.
According to The Sun, one of the scenes shows Diana in bed with James Hewitt, and another sees her square up to Camilla Parker Bowles.
Broadway is coming to Netflix. The new stage musical @DianaOnBroadway, starring Jeanna de Waal, will premiere next year ahead of its 2021 Broadway opening.

The musical also features a line from the Queen, who tells Diana, “In the old days we would have chopped off your head.”
Another controversial point from the show depicts Diana punching a mirror, after Prince Charles moans that they have “another boy” after Harry is born.
Following reports that Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have signed a rumoured a $100 million deal with Netflix, Princess Diana’s former bodyguard Ken Wharfe has called for Harry to step in and stop the musical from airing on the streaming service.
He said: “If the critics are to be believed, this musical story is not a joyous journey of love with a happy ending but an episodic account of untruths, scandal and sex.”
“Harry loved his mother dearly and has spoken of her in such loving detail recently.”
The 72-year-old said Harry should “stand alone from his wife and make clear his abhorrence of such a musical and call Netflix to account.”
