A WOMAN who has become very attached to Elizabeth Debicki’s character in The Crown hopes nothing bad happens to her this season.
Eleanor Shaw loves troubled, tempestuous Diana in the hit Netflix series, and has her fingers crossed the Princess of Wales does not meet a grisly end like Lord Mountbatten on that boat.
Shaw said: “Diana went through hell in season five with the phone tapping plot and the divorce. She deserves a happy ending.
“Everything started out so well when she was played by Emma Corrin, too. She met Charles, fell in love, had a big wedding, then it all went downhill. It’s like the writers have got it in for her.
“I’m not saying she’s perfect. All those affairs were definitely a low point. But maybe she wouldn’t have been driven to them if Charles was more supportive of her eating disorder.
“Hopefully this season she’ll find a new romantic interest or win the lottery or something. Anything to put a smile on her beautiful but permanently glum face.”
Friend Nikki Hollis said: “I asked Ellie if she remembers 1997 but she covered her ears and begged me not to tell her spoilers.”
