Sticking by her mate


If you’re Jemima Goldsmith and that mate was Princess Diana, you can be sure it will create waves… Goldsmith has been a British tabloid media magnet since forever. She was 21yo when she married Imran Khan – a retired cricketer who would become Pakistan’s PM. That ended, and she’s now a screenwriter and television producer, and as a close friend of Diana’s, she’s uniquely placed to help the makers of The Crown. Goldsmith says she was onboard to “co-write” the 5th season because she wanted to see “my friend’s life be portrayed accurately and with compassion”. Now she says the wildly successful series isn’t doing that, and she’s left the show. That was news to creator Peter Morgan who said she didn’t have a contract and was one of “a wide network of well-informed and varied sources” giving advice. Remember, it’s all fiction anyway… Season 5 will be out in November 2022 dammit that’s a long time away.
