With the immiment arrival of William and Kate’s first child, it’s the perfect time for another dose of royalty. Enter Naomi Watts and her starring role in a new biopic of Princess Diana.
The film, which is released in cinemas this September, charts Diana’s hectic international lifestyle as well as her hidden relationship with Dr Hasnat Khan (played by Lost’s Naveen Andrews) following her much-publicised divorce from Prince Charles.
The latest poster shows the Australian actress wearing a replica of the dress worn by Diana to a 1997 performance of Swan Lake, along with some sparkling jewells and a ring similar to that worn by the Duchess of Cambridge.
The new artwork is accompanied by the caption “The legend is never the whole story”, a line that also featured in the film’s first trailer when it was released a couple of weeks ago.
Diana is directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel (Downfall, Five Minutes of Heaven) and is expected to also look at her relationship with Dodi Fayed with whom she was travelling in Paris when their car was involved in a fatal crash in 1997. Watch the trailer below…
Diana is released in UK cinemas on 20 September 2013
