The trailer for Kristen Stewart’s new Princess Diana movie has now dropped and royal enthusiasts are counting down the days until Spencer is released.
Directed by Pablo Larrain (Jackie) and reportedly written by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight, Spencer will be set in Sandringham, and will show Lady Diana Spencer as she realises her marriage is on the rocks.
"We decided to get into a story about identity, and around how a woman decides somehow, not to be the queen," Larrain told Deadline.
"She's a woman who, in the journey of the movie, decides and realises that she wants to be the woman she was before she met Charles."
Princess Diana and Prince Charles got married in 1981 and the marriage publicly broke down in 1992, with the pair officially divorcing in 1996.
“Spencer is a dive inside an emotional imagining of who Diana was at a pivotal turning point in her life," Kristen Stewart told Deadline. "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."
Spencer is due to be released in the UK and the US on 5th November 2021.

Alongside Kristen Stewart as Diana, Jack Farthing (Poldark, Love Riot Repeat) will play Prince Charles.
We can also expect to see Amy Manson (Casualty) as Anne Boleyn, Olga Hellsing as Sarah Ferguson, Thomas Douglas (I’m Good, The Reformer) as Earl Spencer, Diana’s father, Jack Nielson (Stacey Stone) as the young Prince William, Mathias Wolkowski (Game of Cones) as Prince Edward, Oriana Gordon (Annalena) as Lady Sarah Armstrong-Jones, and German actor Nikhlas Court as Prince Andrew.
Timothy Spall, Sean Harris, Sally Hawkins and Richard Sammel also feature in undisclosed roles.
The filming of Spencer began in various castle locations in Germany in early 2021, before production of the later parts of the film moved to the UK.
