Princess Diana’s bulimia shown in The Crown after Meghan and Harry Netflix deal

The Crown will feature emotional scenes detailing Princess Diana's struggles with an eating disorder in the 1980s, sparking fears of another "flashpoint" between her sons.

In the upcoming fourth season of the hit Netflix programme, boss Peter Morgan is believed to be documenting Diana's struggles in scenes which it is feared could cause her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, to come to blows.

And the news come as Harry and wife Meghan Markle have signed a mega-bucks deal with the streaming giant.

Close friends of Diana have previously claimed that her struggles were triggered as her marriage to Prince Charles began to "fade away".

Emma Corrin, 24, who has taken on the role of the late Princess, will be seen binging on food before rushing to a toilet to be sick.

A source revealed to The Sun that members of The Royal Family are said to feel deeply "uncomfortable" about the situation.

"William and other senior royals are incredibly uncomfortable about this drama and livid Harry is now in partnership with the company that's airing it," the royal source told the paper.

"It's the latest in a long line of flashpoints between the brothers, but there are few more sensitive subjects than the plight of their mother."

The mole went on to add: "Viewers of The Crown — which is a candid look at the Queen's reign — wouldn't expect the writers to ignore something which is now a matter of public record."

They added that members of The Windsor Family "wouldn't expect one of their own to take money made by the profits of shows like this."

In a statement, a spokesperson for Left Bank Pictures, which is responsible for producing The Crown said: "Producers worked closely with the eating disorder charity, BEAT, to ensure that their portrayal of Princess Diana's bulimia in Season Four was both ­accurate to the disorder and sensitively handled."

The news follows the recent announcement that ex-senior royals Harry, 35, and wife Meghan Markle, 39, had signed a staggering deal with Netflix.

It's believed that the Sussexes will be producing documentaries, films and scripted kids programmes.

News recently broke that the streaming company plan to air a "seedy" Broadway musical focusing on the life of Harry and William's mum.

Daily Star Online has approached Prince Harry's representatives for comment.
