Overall Reception

According to review aggregator Metacritic, the first installment of the season received “mixed or average reviews”, based on a weighted average score of 57 out of 100 from 17 critic reviews. On Rotten Tomatoes, 33% of 9 reviews are positive, and the average rating is 5.8/10. Recently, Netflix came under controversy after an insider from the show described a scene from the new season, detailing how Princess Diana would be coming back as a ghost to appear in front of her ex-husband, Charles, and Queen Elizabeth II following her untimely death in 1997 car crash in Paris.

After backlash, a Netflix spokesperson spoke to the media, claiming, “These sensitive and thoughtful imagined conversations seek to bring to life the depth of emotion that was felt after such a seismic tragedy struck at the heart of the family.”
