As Princess Diana’s story takes the spotlight in Netflix’s The Crown Season 6, the recently released first-look photos showcase Elizabeth Debicki’s stunning portrayal of the iconic princess. She seems to bond well with Prince William and Harry in the pictures.
The streaming giant announced earlier this month that the final season of Peter Morgan’s drama will be divided into two parts, with the first part premiering on November 16 and the second part following on December 14.
The first part consists of four episodes that delve into the blossoming relationship between Diana and Dodi Fayed, played by Khalid Abdalla, before a tragic car journey alters their lives forever.
In an interview with Netflix back in May, Debicki shared her thoughts on the unique challenge of portraying those days. “I really just trusted in Peter’s emotional blueprint that he created for us to follow,” she said. “It’s his interpretation and I think it made emotional sense to me, so I clung to that.”
Part 1 also features Dominic West as Prince Charles, Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret, Salim Daw as Mohamed Al Fayed, Rufus Kampa as Prince William, and Fflyn Edwards as Prince Harry.
Part 2 of The Crown Season 6 continues the saga of the Windsor family across six more episodes. It explores Prince William’s efforts to reintegrate into life at Eton after his mother’s tragic death, as well as the Queen’s reflections on the monarchy’s future with the marriage of Charles and Camilla.
The beginning of William and Kate’s relationship is also showcased in these episodes. Ed McVey portrays Prince William, Luther Ford portrays Prince Harry, and Meg Bellamy takes on the role of Kate Middleton.
