Kristen Stewart embodies Princess Diana in breathtaking snap from biographical drama Spencer 


Kristen Stewart embodied the late Princess Diana in a new still from the new biographical drama. 

The actress, 31, cut a glamorous figure in the snap as she donned a black off the shoulder dress and a diamond tiara.

Looking at the camera, the film star also wore her locks in Diana’s signature style for the flick, which is set in 1991.

The actress posed next to a gold-framed mirror in the snap, with much of the film taking place at the Queen’s Sandringham Estate. 

The Twilight star has won rave reviews for her performance in the film with some speculating she could be a contender for next year’s Academy Awards. 

Kristen previously said the extreme level of fame she has experienced help her have some personal understanding of the pressure Princess Diana most likely felt as she prepared for her role as the royal in Spencer.

The actress told The Sunday Times: ‘It’s feeling constantly watched, no matter what you do. If you’re in public, someone in the room is looking at you at all times.

‘Even if they’re not, it’s at the back of your mind. That is a feeling you only have if you’re extremely famous. It’s a completely different approach to being a human,’ she admitted. 

Kristen was turned into ‘paparazzi gold’ thanks to the vampire franchise, which made $3.3 billion at the box office, and had to deal with the added pressure of the internet and users’ obsessions.

But when asked about the comparisons between Diana’s fame and hers, she at first says: ‘The attention is something I can see a parallel in, but the cumulative expectation? Not remotely there.’

Kristen did, however, admit that it was ‘weird’ to ‘inhabit a space where people are disappointed in your choices’, before insisting she has tried to be a figurehead or a role model.

Spencer focuses on a fictionalised Sandringham gathering at Christmas 1991, when Princess Diana is at peak fame and about to split from her husband, Prince Charles.

The first trailer for the movie was released last month, with Kristen’s take on the late Royal’s accent heard for the first time.

Set in 1991 and set for release on November 5, the short clip saw the Hollywood star roaming the grounds of Sandringham Estate at Christmas time as her marriage to Prince Charles breaks down in the wake of divorce and infidelity rumours.

The script, written by English screenwriter Steven Knight, who has also written Peaky Blinders, follows the moments when Diana realises she needs to ‘veer from a path that puts her in-line to one day be Queen.’

A similar Christmas was just dramatised on the latest season of The Crown, for which Emma Corrin earned widespread critical acclaim.

She said: 'It¿s feeling constantly watched, no matter what you do. If you¿re in public, someone in the room is looking at you at all times'

It comes after Kristen recently confirmed she is engaged to girlfriend Dylan Meyer.

‘We’re marrying, we’re totally gonna do it,’ she announced on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show.

‘I wanted to be proposed to, so I think I very distinctly carved out what I wanted and she nailed it. We’re marrying, it’s happening.’ 

‘I wasn’t specific at all. It’s not a given that I would be the one. You know what I mean? With two girls, you never know like who’s going to fulfill what weird f***ing gender role thing. We don’t do that or think about it in those terms. She just grabbed that bowl and made it happen. It was f***ing so cute,’ said the cover girl.

Kristen previously said she wanted to marry Dylan and was thinking about how to propose. The actress has been with her partner for two years after first meeting six years ago then reconnecting in 2019.
