Elizabeth Debicki has landed the role of Princess Diana in Netflix's highly acclaimed royal drama, The Crown; taking over the role from Emma Corrin, whose series 4 portrayal of the character has just dropped on the streaming platform.
The Tenet star will portray Diana in The Crown's fifth and sixth series, alongside the likes of Imelda Staunton and Jonathan Pryce, who will star as the Queen and Prince Philip respectively.
"Princess Diana's spirit, her words and her actions live in the hearts of so many," said Elizabeth Debicki of the role.

The final two seasons of The Crown are set to cover events that occurred between the 1990s and 2000s, including the deaths of Princess Margaret and the Queen Mother, as well the Queen's Golden Jubilee.
