The Crown star Olivia Colman revealed in the caption of a new Netflix Instagram post that watching Emma Corrin portray Princess Diana was "spooky." Emma played the former Lady Diana Spencer, who gained the title of Princess of Wales by becoming engaged to Prince Charles, in the fourth season of the Netflix series. Olivia portrays Queen Elizabeth, the reigning monarch of England.
Olivia claimed it felt surreal watching Emma play Princess Diana as she first entered the royal family during the early years of her marriage to Prince Charles.
In a series of eight slides, The Crown used contrasting images of the screen version of events versus snapshots of the real occasions. In some cases, the fashion displayed in the slideshow posted to Instagram below were difficult to discern.
The group of photographs started with Emma wearing a stunning cream-colored, strapless embroidered dress with a coordinating bolero jacket that was trimmed in silver beads. The following was a photo of Diana in the same outfit. This look was recreated for a scene that followed Diana on a solo trip to New York City where she attended an event at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, reported Insider.
