The story of Princess Diana is very much tied to her marriage and her children. In fact, fans of the late Princess of Wales have kept a very close watch on Prince William and Prince Harry over the years mainly due to their reverence and respect for Diana.

So when it was reported that a musical about Lady D will not feature her sons, some felt that this will not do the royal justice.

Executive Editor of The Sun Dan Wootton revealed new information about the upcoming musical. Wootton, in his report, explained that neither Prince Harry nor Prince William will be portrayed in the story and Prince Charles will only make a brief "cameo appearance" in a scene set on their wedding day.

In addition, producers of the musical have written out Dodi Fayed, Diana's last boyfriend, from the script.

The purpose of the musical titled Call Me Diana is solely to celebrate the life of the late princess. And as a result, it will veer away from conspiracy theories or other murky areas that may show the royal family in a negative light.

Brian Watsons, one of the producers, told Wootton that the goal is to put on a show that will not upset Diana's sons. They want a musical that William and Harry wouldn't mind seeing at some point.

One other aspect that will not be re-enacted is Diana's 1997 car crash which led to her passing. This part will be left out so as not to leave the audience in tears.

Following this report, many have expressed their disapproval of the choices made by the production team. In general, they feel like the story of the late royal will not be complete without some of these aspects, especially the parts about her children.

One can understand the reactions of these commenters who will probably like to watch a musical that encompasses all areas of Diana's life.
