Warning: This post contains spoilers for The Crown.
Princess Diana is the undeniable star of Season 5 of the The Crown. Played by Elizabeth Debicki, the people’s princess takes center stage in the latest season of the Netflix series as she divorces Charles and establishes a new life on her own terms. We follow her romance with Dr. Hasnat Khan (Humayun Saeed) and get hints of a future fling with Dodi Fayed (Khalid Abdalla), the man who eventually died alongside Diana and their driver Henri Paul in a tragic car crash on Aug. 31, 1997.
An entire episode of the show is dedicated to Dodi and his father, Mohamed al-Fayed (Aamir El-Masry, and then Salim Daw), the billionaire who longed to enter the inner circle of the British upper class. Mohamed and Diana became fast friends, and the show suggests they bonded over their outsider status. The series outlines how al-Fayed’s means could offer Diana the protection she required—from private bodyguards and yachts and villas to luxe vacations— after her divorcée status banished her from royal circles. Mohamed also seemed eager for Dodi and Diana to connect: Dodi was reportedly engaged to someone else when his father invited him on vacation with Diana and her sons, William and Harry.
Here’s everything you need to know about Dodi and his father.
