Royal experts criticize Kristen Stewerd's film portraying Princess Diana: Cruel and Unnecessary
Royal experts have called the Spencer film, a film portraying Princess Diana, both cruel and unnecessary.
In the long-awaited film, 31-year-old actress Kristen Steward takes on the role of the late Princess Diana and covers some of the darkest moments from her life before her death in 1997.
From the promotional trailers we see Kristen and Diana bursting into tears in front of her little boy Prince William as she tries to cope with her eating disorder in the early nineties.
The late Princess struggled with bulimia throughout her life and Spencer recounts her mental health crisis in great detail.
In other intense scenes we see the mother of two fantasizing about jumping down the stairs or strangling herself with a pendant.
Royal experts have criticized the biographical film noting the impact it could have on Diana's two children, Prince William and Prince Harry.
Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, said: " It's really cruel to portray it that way. It's completely unnecessary.
"William and Harry will be very angry and hurt about this. It will be horrible for them to see that their mother is being portrayed in such a big movie this way."
Penny Junor, a royal biographer and expert, shared a similar view, saying, "It's so unnecessary. Poor William is all I can say, and let's leave Diana with some respect and dignity."
Star Kristen Steward called the late Princess of Wales a "generous person" and explained how "careful" they were when shooting the film.
Spencer gives viewers a dramatic description of Diana's life shortly after her marriage to Prince Charles broke down.
Set in 1991, the film documents the People’s Princess spending three days with the royal family at Sandringham House, where she decides to finally end her troubled marriage to Prince Charles.
