    Earlier this week, Emma revealed she asked scriptwriters to add in graphic bulimia scenes to depict the People’s Princess’ battle with the eating disorder.

    Speaking to the Radio Times, the TV star said she wanted to include scenes of Diana vomiting to portray the eating disorder in an ‘honest way.’

    Speaking of the scenes, which Emma developed with her movement coach, she said: ‘We’d been working on her body language and we put together a document that we sent to the script team and said: “Can you include some of this in the writing because we’d love to really flesh out those scenes?”

    ‘I felt that if we were trying to depict bulimia in an honest way, we had to actually show it – otherwise it’s a disservice to anyone who has been through that. 

    ‘I don’t think we should shy away from those conversations; Diana was very candid about her experience with bulimia and I so admire that.’ 

    Diana herself first revealed her battle with bulimia during her bombshell Panorama interview with Martin Bashir in 1995.

    The Cambridge alum said she related to pressure put on young women to be ‘thin and glamorous’ and that social media placed further importance on people to ‘be a certain way.’

    WHAT IS BULIMIA NERVOSA?

    According to the NHS, bulimia is ‘an eating disorder and mental health condition’

    ‘People who have bulimia go through periods where they eat a lot of food in a very short amount of time and then make themselves sick’, the website adds,

    The eating disorder is most common in young women, and sufferers often have a distorted image of their figures

    Symptoms include: 

    • Binge eating
    • Purging
    • Fear of putting on weight
    • Critical about weight and body shape
    • Extreme mood changes

    Emma and Josh have seen their stars rise since landing the royal roles, with the blonde praising Queen Elizabeth II actress Olivia Colman and Princess Margaret star Helena Bonham Carter for ‘protecting her.’   

    The Royal Tunbridge Wells native will be replaced by Elizabeth Debicki for series five of The Crown, with Dominic West rumoured to be taking on the role of Prince Charles.   

    The Crown will include a warning for viewers ahead of episodes that will feature Princess Diana‘s battle with bulimia.

    A spokesperson explained that series four will feature a disclaimer to inform viewers of the upcoming scenes that will depict the Princess’ struggles with the eating disorder.

    According to The Sun, the on-screen warning will feature in three of The Crown’s ten episodes in series four, which will depict the Royals from 1979 to 1990.

    It is thought to read: ‘The following episode includes scenes of an eating disorder which some viewers may find troubling. Viewers discretion is required.’

    A spokesperson for Netflix told the publication: ‘The Crown producers worked closely with the eating disorder charity, BEAT, to ensure that their portrayal of Princess Diana’s bulimia was both accurate to the disorder and sensitively handled.

    ‘When viewers watch the series on Netflix they will see warning cards at the beginning of the episodes giving details of how to seek help if required.’  

    MailOnline contacted representatives for The Crown for further comment at the time.

    If you have been affected by this story you can call BEAT at 0808 801 0677.
