We’re spoiled for choice when it comes to award-winning depictions of Princess Diana. From Emma Corrin’s show-stopping performance as the young princess in Netflix’s The Crown, to Kristen Stewart’s hotly-anticipated portrayal as a slightly older and more repressed Diana in Spencer, it seems that the ‘people’s Princess’ is once more an object of our fascinations.
However, for all the brilliant portrayals of Princess Diana, there is also some truly dreadful ones: Diana: The Musical, for example.
The theatre show, which has landed on Netflix before its run on Broadway, tells the story through the medium of song, and let’s just say reviews of it have been…mixed.
Watch a clip below.
Yes, this is real.
If you struggled to watch the musical number, Princess Diana and Prince Charles (played by Jeanna de Waal and Roe Hartrampf) are watching some classical music when Diana keeps daydreaming about what it would be like to be at a ‘proper party’.
It even features a dream sequence which sees Prince Charles doing the robot.
Twitter is less than impressed with the clip, with many taking to the comments to express their dismay.
“Well, this looks awful,” one person said succinctly.
“It's a good job they put this on Netflix where you can see five minutes for free and then turn it off and never think about it again... Imagine paying Broadway prices for this,” a second person wrote, disappointed.
“Did panto season come early?” asked a third.
“What did people do wrong to deserve this?” quipped a fourth.
Diana: The Musical has attracted attention for its somewhat outlandish lyrics, which include:
“Feel the groove, even royals want to move…this is how your happy goddamn bloody people dance.”
“Harry, my ginger-haired son, you’ll always be second to none.”
“Better than a Guinness, better than a w**k.”
“It's a thrilla in Manila with Diana and Camilla.”
“Serves me right for marrying a Scorpio.”
Well, if you’re looking for a fun musical to watch, look no further than Netflix, it seems.
Diana: The Musical is available to stream on Netflix.
