The trailer for the film Spencer starring Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana has been released. The short preview, that lasts just over one minute in length, shows Diana (Stewart) 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.

Set in 1991 and set for release on November 5, director Pablo Larrain’s Spencer is yet another take on Britain’s beloved, tragic royal.

Here is a selection of the many attempts at depicting the Lady Di hat have been made since the 1980’s:

Crown (2020)

Newcomer Emma Corrin was cast as Princess Diana in the fourth season of The Crown in 2019, and earned critical acclaim for her portrayal of the charming but troubled young princess.

Diana (2013)

To date, the biggest budget take was this 2014 movie in which British-Australian actress Naomi Watts was cast. The movie was widely panned by critics and even Watts later admitted that the film was “a sinking ship.”

Diana: Last Days Of A Princess (2007)

This Channel 5 docu-drama stars Irish actress Genevieve O’Reilly. The title seems to have fared well with critics with one reviewer in The New York Times writing: “It portrays her as needy but manipulative, loving but flawed — in other words, as a human being. Blending documentary techniques and scripted drama, it gives a surprisingly credible picture of the princess’s last summer.”

‘Diana & Me’ (1997)

The “lost” Diana movie stars Toni Collette as an Australian named Diana Spencer who travels to Britain to catch a glimpse of her famous namesake. Unfortunately, it was due for release in September 1997 and was yanked from the schedules following Diana’s death on August 31. The film is now available only via a German DVD release.

Diana: Her True Story (1993)

Based on the publication of the same name by Andrew Morton, British actress and model Serena Scott Thomas, sister of Kristin Scott, found some praise for her portrayal in this made-for-TV movie. The Sun newspaper, however, still found this adaptation of a popular biography “as shallow as a toddler’s play-pool.”

Charles And Diana: A Royal Love Story (1982)

This 1982 made-for-television biographical drama starred Catherine Oxenberg as Diana, Christopher Baines as Prince Charles, and Hollywood royalty Olivia de Havilland as Queen Elizabeth. It originally aired September 20, 1982 on CBS. One review from The Washington Post called it a piece of ‘slack-jawed heraldic voyeurism incapable of, and apparently uninterested in, transforming remote news figures into believable mortals.’
