“I didn’t understand what was going on and she explained who this person was.

The Crown’s Creator Explains Diana’s “Ghost” Scenes

The first four episodes of The crownThe upcoming season will explore the events that led to Diana’s death. Season 6 episodes will also deal with the immediate aftermath of her death, with scenes in which the Queen and Prince Charles have visions of themselves conversing with the late princess. Many now refer to the scenes as depictions of Diana’s ghost. The Crown creator Peter Morgan takes a different view: “The word ghosts is not helpful. “I’ve never written anything from a supernatural perspective, not at all,” he said. “It was more of an indication that someone who has just died is still alive in the minds of everyone who is close to them and loves them. And sometimes it’s impossible to put it out of your mind. “It felt more like an extension of her in real life than a ghost,” he explained.

Debicki echoed Morgan’s sentiments, explaining, “I’ve always been very fascinated by Peter’s brain and I think it’s an interesting and beautiful way to have a conversation about the experience of grief. I think we approached it that way too.” It’s such a delicate, human, crashing thing that you can’t expect, the loss of someone, and I think the way he imagined it was very beautiful and made sense to me.”
