Prince Harry would be "disgraceful" if he didn't fight Netflix over its decision to make a musical about the life of his mother Princess Diana, his ex-biographer believes.
The Duke of Sussex has partnered with Netflix to make original content with his wife Meghan Markle in a deal rumored to have earned them upwards of £100 million.
Streaming giant Netflix released Diana: The Musical on October 1 and critics have taken issue with some of its content, such as depicting Diana self-harming and showing the princess in bed with lover James Hewitt.
Angela Levin, who wrote the book Harry: Conversations with the Prince, blasted the Duke of Sussex as she shared her personal opinions live on GB News on Tuesday (October 5).
"When I was interviewing him for my biography about him in 2018, he told me how he couldn't cope with the fact he didn't do enough for his mother, that he was too young and he didn't understand everything and how that feeling will always stay with him," she says.
The writer continues: "Here we have, x years later, when he still feels like his mother is looking down on him and watching and encouraging him in his movements and the charities he supports, here is an opportunity to do something.
"And say, you know, 'I'm not standing for this, you can't do this, it's abusive'.
"He attacks the general press for being abusive but this is Netflix who he is working for and he should be brave enough to talk to them.
"But, of course, money is very important to him now and he seems to have lost the strength to make decisions of his own.
"He is much happier letting Meghan do that and following in her footsteps."
Diana: The Musical has been panned by critics, with a rating of just 30 out of 100 on MetaCritic and reviewers suggesting its "crass" songs jar horribly with the tragedy of Diana's final days and violent death.
Representatives of Prince Harry have been contacted for comment.
