The first image of Kristen Stewart as Diana, Princess of Wales has been released for the upcoming biopic, “Spencer.” The film is currently in production in Germany for a planned release this fall. The photo shows Stewart as the princess, staring out of a window, wearing a black blouse and red jacket, with a black veiled hat. As previously reported, the period piece takes place in the 1990s and will have Stewart playing Diana over the Christmas holiday where she allegedly plotted her divorce from Prince Charles and began planning for a life away from the British royal family.
The synopsis for the film reads: “December, 1991: The Prince and Princess of Wales’ marriage has long since grown cold. Though rumours of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at Sandringham Estate. There’s eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. This year, things will be a whole lot different.”
Princess Diana was killed Aug. 31, 1997 in a car crash in Paris that was caused in part by a high-speed pursuit by paparazzi. Her partner, Dodi Fayed, and their driver, Henri Paul, were also killed; a bodyguard survived the crash..
