Kristen Stewart stuns fans as Princess Diana in new film Spencer

Actress Kristen Stewart has made her debut at Princess Diana, much to the delight of royal fans.

Although fans were slightly apprehensive of Stewart filling the role, the latest photo released from production has left fans in awe.

The new film Spencer focuses on one weekend in the life of Princess Diana as she spends the Christmas holidays with the Royal family at the Sandringham estate where she decides to leave her marriage to Prince Charles.

Filming will take place in Germany and the UK with a fall 2021 launch anticipated for the film.

"'Spencer is a dive inside an emotional imagining of who Diana was at a pivotal turning point in her life," said Stewart. "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."

Producers are also excited about the film.

"We are extremely grateful for the support of our distributors worldwide, our partners and funders who have shown tremendous commitment to us in these extraordinary times. With Kristen Stewart, Steven Knight and the rest of our fantastic team both in front and behind the camera, we are bringing 'Spencer' to the world.

"It is an independently produced film made for the big screen about an iconic woman's own declaration of independence. We couldn't be more excited," said producers Jonas Dornbach, Janine Jackowski, Juan de Dios Larraín, Paul Webster and Pablo Larraín.
