Royal experts have predicted Kate and Wills will face a “hellish 2022” as they deal with the new season of Netflix’s The Crown, which will focus on a very painful part of the prince’s childhood.

Journalist Daniela Elser believes Kate is set to have a stressful 12 months as she tries to support husband Wills while his childhood is "picked over" in the new season of The Crown.

Season five of the controversial Netflix show will cover the early 1990s up to Princess Diana's death, and include the breakdown of her marriage to Charles.

The royal expert said that Kate will have to "watch her husband suffer through seeing some of the most traumatic parts of his childhood dredged up and picked over like carrion".

She added: "The Cambridges are staring down the barrel of a very rocky 12-months that will have the entire Royal Family bracing themselves for another global PR crisis".

Elser also pointed out that this stress is sure to only be intensified by the fact Wills’ brother Harry is now on the payroll of Netflix, who produces the series.

Unfortunately for Kate and Wills, The Crown is not the only unwelcome prospect of 2022 as it also marks 25 years since Princess Diana was killed in Paris.

In addition to this heart-breaking anniversary, Prince Harry revealed he is writing a memoir that will be "intimate and heartfelt" detailing his life experiences "in the public eye from childhood to the present day".


Royal biographer Ingrid Seward believes Prince William may come out "the worst of all" when the book is released as it could feature the brother's row.

Speaking to GB News, Seward said: "William is the one who will come out of this the worst of all.

"There is the row between William and Harry, and basically if Harry says things that are inappropriate about the monarchy, that is William's future.

"It is not Harry's future, he is out of it now, but it is William's future.”

The book, by the Duke of Sussex, 36, is set to be released late next year with publisher Random House presenting it as an "uplifting human story" from the sixth in line to the throne.


Random House announced the news on Twitter on Monday 19 July alongside the quote by Prince Harry, which read: "I'm writing this not as the prince I was born but of the man I have become."

The Duke of Sussex continued: "I've worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story – the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.

"I'm deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I've learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a firsthand account of my life that's accurate and wholly truthful."
