The Crown is a historical drama television series about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. Despite some deliberate inaccuracies this Netflix series has been been praised by critics and enjoyed by millions of viewers. This week Jemima Khan stepped away from her role as a consultant. She left the production due to the insensitive manner that the show’s creator, Peter Morgan, portrayed her close friend, Princess Diana, particularly in her romances with British-Pakistani surgeon Hasnat Khan and Egyptian film producer Dodi Al-Fayed.
Khan explains “In 2019, Peter Morgan asked me to co-write on the fifth series of The Crown, particularly those episodes which concerned Princess Diana’s last years before she died. After a great deal of thought, having never spoken publicly about any of this before, I decided to contribute.” She continued “It was really important to me that the final years of my friend’s life be portrayed accurately and with compassion, as has not always happened in the past. When our cowriting agreement was not honoured, and when I realized that particular story line would not necessarily be told as respectfully or compassionately as I had hoped, I requested that all my contributions be removed from the series and I declined a credit.”
Netflix replied to the Times, “Jemima Khan has been a friend, fan and a vocal public supporter of The Crown since season 1. She has been part of a wide network of well-informed and varied sources who have provided extensive background information to our writers and research team — providing context for the drama that is The Crown.” It was asserted that Jemima was never contracted as a “writer” on the series, and the decision to leave was strictly her own.
Jemima Khan and Diana Spencer were friends since 1996 when they met in Lehore, the capitol of the Pakistani province of Punjab. Diana was helping Jemina and Imran Khan, who was then Prime Minister of Pakistan, raise funds for a children’s cancer hospital. Diana also visited the family of Hasnat Khan on these two trips. Supposedly she was loved and admired by Hasnat’s relatives but in the end he decided that his relationship with Diana could not work out.

Princess Diana was born on a Saturday in the zodiac sign of Cancer. Saturn is the ruler of her INNER SELF and the Moon governs her OUTER SELF. Those with the #76 SAT CAN Dayology Signature are usually attentive to their duties and disillusioned with those who are not.
Jemima Khan was born on a Wednesday in the zodiac sign of Cancer. Mercury is the ruler of her INNER SELF and Saturn governs her OUTER SELF. Individuals with #46 Dayology Signature are smart and careful. They do not share their discomforts but they try tell the truth.
Peter Morgan was born on a Wednesday in the zodiac sign of Aries. Mercury is the rulers of his INNER SELF and Mars governs his OUTER SELF. People with the #37 Dayology Signature tend to be way ahead of everyone, including themselves with their ideas and plans.
It’s clear that Khan and Morgan were born on the same day of the week. Wednesday types are very alert and literate. Even though they are both mental, they may not agree as to the principles or the details of any arrangement. It is the nature of each of the twelve SUN SIGNS to channel a DAY RAY energy into the OUTER LIFE. In this case Morgan is a bold Aries and Khan is a careful Capricorn. They simply don’t and can’t view this world in the same manner.
Morgan’s Dayology signature has nothing in common with Princess Diana’s energies. He does not sympathize with her situation. However Jemima’s Saturn ruled OUTER SELF understood something of Diana’s Saturn ruled INNER SELF motivations. This is a strong connection. Jemima smartly took herself out of the situation so that she would not have to betray Diana’s trust and participate in the dishonest and exploitive portrayal of her deceased friend.
It is interesting to note that the two Wednesday types, Jemima Khan and Peter Morgan had a brief romance in early 2021. No reason was given for the break-up, but we can see that things would not have worked out between the two, with this big script disagreement in the way.
