Season six of The Crown is set to drop before the end of the year and will follow the events of the royal family from 1997 to the early 2000s.

However, the royal drama is already sparking outrage for deciding to air distressing scenes of Princess Diana's final tragic moments in Paris.

While the makers of the show had insisted that they would not create the "exact moment" of the fatal car crash that killed the royal in 1997, shocking pictures have been leaked online showing a replica of the smashed car with the bonnet crushed and the dashboard thrown out of the windscreen.

It's believed that the mangled car was transported over to Paris under a tarpaulin in order to film the scenes that took place in Alma Tunnel.

A source from The Crown said: "I think a lot of people will find it quite sick that they went into such detail to recreate how the car was smashed up.

"I think it's going to cause a lot of upset with the Royal Family, if it was any other family I'm not sure they'd do it."

Meanwhile, the upcoming series will also see the development of the romance between Prince William and his now-wife, Princess Catherine.
