The Princess is a perfectly timed, compulsively watchable once-over-lightly documentary. The Diana we see in The Princess is the one we’ve always seen, the one we’ve been watching for 40 years, 25 of them since her death in 1997. Since we’ve never stopped watching her, The Princess, coming on the heels of Spencer, Season 4 of The Crown, and the short-lived musical Diana, may sound like one Diana documentary too many. Yet after all those dramatic treatments, it’s galvanizing to see the real story laid out exactly as it happened — or, more precisely, as it happened and as it was presented to the public, those being, quite often, two very different things.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety
