Did Princess Diana really roller-skate at the palace?

Without a doubt, one of the most iconic characters in the history of the British royal family has been Diana, Princess of Wales. 23 years after her death, her figure is more present than ever and that is due to the recent premiere of the fourth season of The Crown on Netflix that has raised the question: Did Lady Di really rollerblade inside Buckingham Palace , as portrayed in the drama created by Peter Morgan? The immediate answer is YES, but we will explain it in detail below.

It turns out that in episode 3 titled Fairytale from season 4 of The Crown, Princess Diana, played by Emma Corrin, stars in a sequence where she reveals that she is completely alone and above all bored. So to kill time, he decides to skate through the luxurious corridors of the palace, while accompanying the activity with some music from the Duran Duran band through his Walkman.

We would all think that such a scene is the product, precisely, of a fictional story and that there are strict protocols in the British royal family that do not allow for fun. But nevertheless, Oona O’BeirnThe Crown producer spoke exclusively to Vogue magazine to confirm that Diana had the fun and lovable personality to dare to skate to her favorite pop songs.

«It is true!«Said Oona O’Beirn. «He also rode his bicycle (inside the palace) the night before he got married, but we couldn’t enter it [en el episodio]».

And although Princess Diana probably skated in more intimate places in the palace, the production of The Crown chose to make things more interesting and portray Emma Corrin walking through the best known places of that luxurious abode.

It’s hard to do it on some of those rugs. I think she would surely prefer to do it in some less interesting areas of the palace, but we wanted it to happen in the areas of the palace that we had already seen. It reminds you that Diana was only 19 years old at the time. “

On the other hand, actress Emma Corrin spoke with Sky News where she had no doubt about the funny spirit of Lady Di and commented the following:

I think she really did. You know what, it was that sort of thing, the skating, the sense of fun that he obviously had before he became royalty and that he somehow kept. I think it was quite unusual.

The first four seasons of The Crown are now available on Netflix. Recall that the streaming titan had anticipated that the show would have a final and fifth season starring Imelda Staunton like Queen Elizabeth II. However, through Twitter they made it official that it will be six seasons in total. So we still get to see Olivia Colman in installment five before she passes the baton to Imelda Staunton.

“News from the palace: we can confirm that there will be a sixth and final season of The Crown, in addition to the announcement that he anticipated only five.”

“Writer and creator Peter Morgan had this to say: ‘When we started discussing the stories of Season 5, it soon became clear that to do justice to the richness and complexity of the series, we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons.'” .

«So to summarize, We’ll have one more season with Queen Olivia Colman, before she passes the crown to Imelda Staunton. We are halfway there! What a charmer!”.
