Speaking about the series, he said: "I'm a huge fan! I was called in to consult on that particular thing. I went into the studio and talked them through, saying, 'Don't forget to do this'. That scene, I think, is going to be quite brief, because they're concentrating on her and also to shoot there is a lot of money.

"I understand they kept it brief. I met all the seamstresses on it – about 15 or 20 – and they were very excited about it, I was telling them various tricks to keep the sleeves out. It was fun." 

In the new trailer for the popular Netflix show, Diana's dress can be seen for a brief moment, hinting that the new episodes with have a closer focus on the younger royals at the time.
