If you're anything like us, we have been eagerly awaiting to see how Princess Diana is going to look in the new series of Netflix's The Crown.

  • The new series of Netflix's The Crown finally sees the introduction of Princess Diana.
  • Yesterday, pictures were released showing Emma Corrin playing the part and looking scarily similar to the late Princess.
  • In other royal news, Princess Eugenie won't accept a royal title for her baby.

Played by Emma Corrin, the 24-year-old Cambridge graduate from Tunbridge Wells, it is actually rather spooky how alike the actress looks to the late Princess of Wales.

In an interview with Vogue Emma said, "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."

Ahead of the new series' release in November, Netflix has shared a number of images from the filming. In one shot, Diana arrives at a red carpet event in a strapless purple gown with Prince Charles. In another photo, she is having a talk with Camilla Parker Bowles and in the final, she is wearing a beautiful yellow suit while being hounded by paparazzi.

Last month, Netflix released a teaser for season four, where we got to see Diana's famous wedding dress from 1981. The Emanuels, who designed the original dress gave The Crown the patterns, so they were able to make an exact copy for Emma.

We also see the back of her and her iconic bob stepping out of her flat on Old Brompton Road, where she lived before her engagement, into the masses of paparazzi.

But the introduction of Diana has been exciting everyone the most, as the producers and directors of the show have been known to not hold back on somewhat exposing the ins and outs of the most famous family in the world.

The Crown Season 4 will launch on Netflix on Sunday 15th November.
