Other people from Diana’s life will also be a part of the musical. These include her Edward “Johnnie” Spencer, Barbara Cartland and James Hewitt, who claim to have had an affair with the princess. There will also be a young Diana, Andrew Morton, butler Paul Burrell, and a royal biographer.
Who Plays Camilla Parker-Bowles? – It is reported that Erin Davie will play the Duchess of Cornwall. How she will be portrayed in the Broadway musical isn’t known yet, though.
Camilla has been a topic of controversy ever since she was identified as Prince Charles’ mistress. Some blame her (as well as Charles) for the destruction of Diana’s marriage. However, there are others that have been more forgiving. The latter cite that they were romantically involved years before either of them wed other people and weren’t allowed to marry.
