Netflix’s Diana: The Musical is officially here and features the original Broadway cast! Jeanna de Waal plays Princess Diana, Roe Hartrampf is Prince Charles, Erin Davie is Camilla Parker Bowles, and Judy Kaye is Queen Elizabeth.
The synopsis reads, “Diana tells the story of one of the most beloved women of modern times. Engaged to a prince she barely knows, 19-year-old Diana Spencer is thrust onto the world stage and, overnight, becomes the most famous woman in the world. As she struggles to navigate her way within the rigid structure of the royal family, Princess Diana finds herself trapped in a loveless marriage, eventually finding her voice by devoting herself to those in need. Forced to endure a media spotlight brighter than the world has ever known, Princess Diana defies all expectations to emerge as her own woman and create a legacy that will endure forever.”
I will share my review tomorrow. In the meantime, here are some of Twitter’s best reactions to Diana: The Musical.
My God, @L1ZZlE is a total mood.

I, too, was surprised to see Camilla so soon and so often.
@allyobrien calls the early appearance of Camilla BOLD!
Simply DOOran DOOran #DianaNetflix— Princess Ally 👸🏼🌈 (she/her) (@allyobrien) October 2, 2021
I thought the Duran Duran dialogue was cute and a fun way to show how out of touch Prince Charles was compared to Princess Diana. @allyobrien addressed it with a simple, “DOOran DOOran”
Princess Diana’s nickname for Camilla was really “The Rottweiler.” 😈
The Twittersphere is here for it.
According to Diana, there was nothing special about Prince Charles’ proposal. @Bayaderra enjoyed that particular scene.
Is this a proposal? What a terrible Proposal! #DianaNetflix— Bayaderra (@Bayaderra) October 2, 2021
Some reviews weren’t… exactly… positive. @spitandtears is sober.
I might be watching but honestly we turned on the Diana Netflix musical and I cannot look away from this glorious train wreck. And I’m sober— ARadSkullMug (@spitandtears) October 2, 2021
Or just an “Oh dear” from THAT Tim Walker.

Stevie Martin was really feeling it though…
I am imploring everyone to offset this grim week by watching the Diana musical on Netflix. Paparazzi are currently dancing around singing “better than a Guinness, better than a wank, snap a few pics it’s money in the bank” and im hoarse with screaming— Stevie Martin (@5tevieM) October 1, 2021
So far Rachel Leishman has provided my favorite commentary…

Quite frankly, Diana: The Musical should have been announced as the 2021 Superbowl Halftime Show.
There's a song in the Princess Di musical called "The Thrilla in Manila But With Diana and Camilla" which is, I think, the moment my soul fully left my body— Hillary Busis (@hillibusterr) October 1, 2021
Orli has receipts. “Harry, my ginger-haired son.”

Never forget that Prince Harry is a Netflix employee. Did you watch Diana: The Musical? Tweet me your reaction. @kinseyschofield
