Netflix has not yet commissioned the programme but TV company DSP has apparently started preparing the project.

Being Me: Diana

Being Me: Diana will also feature claims that the late princess tried to take her own life four times, according to The Sun.

It will also reportedly include unseen footage from Diana’s speeches in 1990-92 and interviews with people close to her.

According to a TV source, quoted in the tabloid, none of her family will take part.

They said: "The royals will refuse to take part as will the Spencer family.

"William and Harry will be very upset and angry. It’s particularly distressing for Harry because he’s been working with Netflix.

"At a time when the royals have been dealt a blow with Harry and Meghan leaving, the timing is not good."

Public domain

A spokeswoman for Endemol Shine, the parent company for DSP, said: "This is a not a commissioned show and everything within the treatment is already in the public domain."

Harry collaborated with the TV streaming service on a Thomas the Tank Engine 75th anniversary special.

"I certainly have fond memories of growing up with Thomas & Friends and being transported to new places through his adventures.

"Very proud to have been asked to take part in this special episode. I wish Thomas & Friends a very happy anniversary."
