King Charles’ five-words to Paul Burrell after Princess Diana’s death

Paul Burrell says The Crown showing Diana’s death is ‘too much’

Paul Burrell has admitted that watching Princess Diana’s death on the Netflix series The Crown was “too much” for him.

The former royal butler worked for The Royal Family for 21 years and was Princess Diana’s butler until she died in 1997.

Speaking on ITV this morning with Lorraine Kelly, the pair discussed the highly-anticipated final series of The Crown which has dropped on Netflix.

After watching a sneak peek of Diana before her death, Lorraine said to Paul: “That was hard for all of us to watch there.”

Paul replied: “I can’t watch that. It’s too graphic. It’s too much.

“It’ll upset William and Harry. It’ll upset a lot of people. It’s very emotional.”

Lorraine added: “You don’t see the crash, but it’s very controversial.”

She also added the the events leading up to Diana’s death and to King Charles marrying Camilla in 2005 are “too recent” to dramatise.

The highly anticipated series will be coming to a conclusion with a sixth season, which will explore topics such as Princess Diana’s death and the story behind Prince William meeting Kate Middleton.

The Crown’s fifth season aired a few months following the death of the late Queen Elizabeth II last year.

Paul also shared the moment he met the then Prince Charles after Princess Diana’s death.

“I was there first thing in the morning. He [Charles] arrived with two sisters and he was visibly shaken and he came up to me and said ‘Are you alright, old thing?’

“I said, ‘I’m fine, Your Royal Highness,’ and he said: ‘The Queen’s worried about you. And William and Harry wondered if you were okay?'”

“I said, ‘Yes, I am fine and I am doing my job. I’m doing what I think I should be doing.”

The Crown season six part one premieres November 16 on Netflix. Part two will drop just under a month later on December 14.
