Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana in 'Spencer' - First Look Photo!

Here’s your very first look at Kristen Stewart as the late Princess Diana in the upcoming film Spencer, which has begun filming!

Here’s a synopsis of the film, directed by Pablo Larraín: December, 1991: The Prince and Princess of Wales’ marriage has long since grown cold. Though rumours of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at Sandringham Estate. There’s eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. This year, things will be a whole lot different.

The film follows Princess Diana as she spends the Christmas holiday with the royal family at the Sandringham estate in Norfolk and decides to leave her marriage to Prince Charles. Timothy Spall, Sally Hawkins, and Sean Harris also star.

Kristen said of the movie, “Spencer is a dive inside an emotional imagining of who Diana was at a pivotal turning point in her life. It is a physical assertion of the sum of her parts, which starts with her given name; Spencer. It is a harrowing effort for her to return to herself, as Diana strives to hold onto what the name Spencer means to her.”

Kristen previously revealed why she was “nervous” to play the role.

Kristen Stewart Says She's 'Protective' of Princess Diana As She Prepares for New Movie 'Spencer'

Kristen Stewart is gearing up to play Princess Diana!

The 30-year-old actress recently chatted on Jimmy Kimmel Live! about playing the late royal in the upcoming biopic Spencer.

“I didn’t grow up with her maybe in the same way, I was really young when she passed away,” Kristen shared, before admitting she feels “protective” of Diana. “I feel sort of the same way about her. It happened really quickly.”

Spencer will be centered around Diana realizing her marriage to Prince Charles is coming to an end during her final Christmas holiday weekend with the Royal Family at their Sandringham estate.

Kristen was only 7-years-old when Diana was killed in a tragic car accident in Paris, and said that all she could recall from the tragedy were “the flowers” laid in front of Buckingham Palace in her honor.

“I was really young, [I] didn’t know what was going on,” Kristen said. “It’s hard not to feel protective of her. She was so young.”

Kristen continued, “I mean, everyone’s perspective is different and there’s no way to get anything right because what is fact in relation to personal experience.”

“My movie takes place over three days, and it’s this really poetic internal imagining of what that might have felt like rather than giving new information,” Kristen continued. “We kind of don’t have a mark to hit, we just also love her.”

During another interview with The Wrap, Kristen said that she watched the new season of The Crown, which followed Princess Diana‘s first few years as a member of the Royal Family. She was played by Emma Corrin in the Netflix series.

“I feel really lucky to have ‘The Crown’ because I’ve emotionally invested in people that to me feel — like, I know that they’re real people, and there’s ample material to reinforce that and sort of remind yourself of that,” Kristen shared. “But now I feel this emotional attachment to these characters and I have this accompaniment that I can go to sleep with and feel like, ‘Oh, God, I already I already have feelings about these people,’ That speaks to the show’s credit.”

Season four of The Crown ended in 1990, while Spencer will be taking place in the early ’90s.

“Luckily, there’s no overlap time-wise, and also historically, and tonally, they’re very different, so I’m really cool with it,” she said. “There’s this idea that it could be horrible that we had like two of the same things at the same time. But they do feel so different.”

Production for Spencer is set to begin in late January in London.

A Prince Harry Source Is Blasting the Latest Reports About Him & Prince William

A source close to Prince Harry is speaking out in response to criticism over his silence on the controversy surrounding his late mom Princess Diana‘s Panorama interview from 25 years ago.

A new inquiry was launched to investigate the circumstances that led to Diana‘s interview with BBC journalist Martin Bashir. The news network has hired a team to investigate whether unethical tactics were used to secure the interview.

For those that don’t know, this was a famous interview as Diana said there were “three of us in this marriage” to Prince Charles. She also spoke of her relationship with army officer James Hewitt.

Prince William released a statement on November 18, but Harry has not commented on the matter. Will said, “The independent investigation is a step in the right direction. It should help establish the truth behind the actions that led to the Panorama interview and subsequent decisions taken by those in the BBC at the time.”

Prince William Releases Rare Statement on His Mom Princess Diana's Infamous Martin Bashir Interview

Prince William has released a very rare statement about his mother Princess Diana and the controversy surrounding her 1995 interview with Martin Bashir on his show at the time, Panorama.

It has been alleged that Bashir created fake bank account documents to try and convince the Princess’ brother to give him an interview with her. The fake bank account documents allegedly suggested that Princess Diana‘s closest confidantes were being paid off to release information about her to the press. An investigation is now taking place to discover if this is true.

Prince William released the following statement to People, saying, “The independent investigation is a step in the right direction. It should help establish the truth behind the actions that led to the Panorama interview and subsequent decisions taken by those in the BBC at the time.”

The Princess was famously very candid in that 1995 interview where she discussed her bulimia, her failed marriage to Prince Charles, raising her two sons in the spotlight, marrying into the royal family, and more. The Princess died less than two years later.

Prince Harry also recently spoke publicly about their late mom.

Emma Corrin Insisted This Part of Princess Diana's Life Be in 'The Crown'

Emma Corrin is opening up about playing Princess Diana in the new season of The Crown.

During a new interview, the 24-year-old actress insisted that the show covered the late princess’ battle with bulimia “in an honest way.”

“We’d been working on her body language, and we put together a document that we sent to the script team and said: ‘Can you include some of this in the writing because we’d love to really flesh out those scenes?’” Emma shared with Radio Times.

“I felt that if we were trying to depict bulimia in an honest way, we had to actually show it – otherwise it’s a disservice to anyone who has been through that,” Emma added. “I don’t think we should shy away from those conversations; Diana was very candid about her experience with bulimia, and I so admire that.”

While preparing for her role as Diana, Emma said she did extensive research on eating disorders.

“You can’t do justice to everything she was experiencing without including that,” Emma told Variety in a different interview. “It was so symptomatic of the emotional turmoil and all the suppressed emotions that she was feeling.”

The new season of The Crown will debut on Netflix on November 15 – watch the trailer here!

Emma Corrin Talks About Her Role as Princess Diana on 'The Crown'

Emma Corrin is opening up about being chosen to play the late Princess Diana for the upcoming fourth season of Netflix’s hit series The Crown.

The 24-year-old actress says that she didn’t tell her friends about landing the role because she didn’t want the news to leak.

Eventually after they guessed the news, Emma says, “my friends from school did this incredible thing, where they made me a scrapbook filled with all of the screenshots from our group WhatsApp, where I have said, ‘Oh my God, guys, I’ve been invited to read.’ Or a random conversation we’d had four years ago when I said, ‘Isn’t Diana amazing!’”

Emma told British Vogue, “I feel I’ve got to know Diana like you would a friend. I know that sounds really weird, but I get a great sense of companionship from her. I suppose, over time, you kind of start to patch together a sense of empathy and a sense of understanding. I love figuring people out.”

For the wedding scene, Diana‘s wedding dress was recreated for Emma to wear.

“The Emanuels, who designed the original, gave us the patterns, and then it was made for me. We were filming the scene when you first see her in the wedding dress – I think it was Lancaster House in London – and I had a team of about 10 people helping me put it on, because it’s massive. I walked out and everyone went completely silent. More than anything else I wear in the series, it’s so … It’s her,” she said.

Prince Harry Still Has A Lot of Grief To Let Out Over His Mom Princess Diana's Death

Prince Harry is opening up about his mom, Princess Diana, on the 23rd anniversary of her death.

During the ITV and HBO Our Mother Diana: Her Life and Legacy special, which aired in 2017, the then 33-year-old royal revealed that his last phone call with Diana was very short, and it was his fault it was.

Harry revealed that he and older brother, Prince William, were at Queen Elizabeth‘s Scottish retreat, Balmoral, and more interested in getting back into playing with their cousins than speaking to Diana.

“If I’d known that that was the last time I was going to speak to my mother the things that I would – the things I would have said to her,” Harry shared.

Previously, Harry admitted that he still hasn’t truly dealt with his grief of losing his mother at such a young age.

He shared that he has only cried tears of grief twice – at her graveside at Althorp in 1997, and since then, “maybe, maybe once…so there’s, you know, there’s a lot of — there’s a lot of grief that still needs to be let out.”
