“The Crown” filming – Diana comes back to life in London

It already has a royal name.

SHE is the new Diana: Elizabeth Debicki (31) takes on the role of Princess of Wales, following in the footsteps of Emma Corrin (25), who the young Lady Di last in „The Crown“ embodied.

The new, long-awaited fifth season now takes place in the 90s, perhaps the most dramatic cycle of the royals under Queen Elizabeth II (95). Everything revolves around Diana († 36) – her broken love for Prince Charles (73), her amazing interview with the BBC and of course her tragic accidental death in Paris.

Season five will be the most important and certainly the most controversial of the Netflix hit. In any case, the series does not have a good reputation with the true Windsors. Filming is in full swing – very close to the Palace in London.

“Tenet” star Elizabeth Debicki may come from Australia, but with her impressive appearance she could hardly be a better match for Diana. Only the height is not quite right: Debicki measures 1.90 meters! Diana, who was also not a small figure, was “only” 1.78 meters tall.

In England’s capital, Debicki has now been spotted outside Launceston Place, a posh restaurant in Kensington just ten minutes’ walk from the palace. With a sky blue skirt, black sweater and typical Diana Frize. You’d think the princess of hearts has come back to life.

Smartphone and coffee mug reveal the illusion – Debicki has probably just taken a break from filming – but the actress still looks like an image of Lady Dis.

Of course, the palace does not like to see that Netflix has the show shot directly in royal territory. The cameras last ran even closer to him in the garden of the Serpentine Gallery, where Diana once wore her black vengeance dress. Only a few meters away from the recently unveiled Diana statue, Debicki reenacted the very scene from 1994 (lead picture).

Quasi directly vat the front door of her son Prince William (39), which even has the best view of the garden. And should not have been enthusiastic … He is said to have previously even asked Netflix to delete Diana completely from the series.

The royal family is threatening legal action that should hardly impress Netflix. After all, “The Crown” is one of the most important series at the streaming giant. The fifth season will not appear until November 2022.

Time enough to cause quite a stir at Queen and Co.
