Spencer: Kirsten Stewart’s Princess Diana accent revealed in new trailer for upcoming Pablo Larrain movie
Her resemblance to the late Diana Spencer has shocked the world and now the trailer for Kristen Stewart’s new movie Spencer has been released — along with the first sound of her stunning accent.
The dramatic clip begins with a stressed out Princess of Wales in front of the mirror, as a household servant knocks on the door and says: “Ma’am they are waiting for you,” before cutting to Lady Di bustling down the hallway of Sandringham Estate in a fishtail gown and pearls.
It then shows glimpses of royal life and duty, with clothes being laid out, lavish feasts being prepared and sitting for family portraits.
In one scene it depicts Lady Di’s iconic outfits as she is photographed by hordes of paparazzi before cutting to her standing alone at the front of Sandringham.
The highly-anticipated film will portray the late Princess’ lonely last days in the unhappy royal marriage and will unfold over three days during the 1991 Christmas holidays at Sandringham.
That weekend is when Princess Diana decided to end her marriage with Prince Charles, played by Jack Farthing.
Directed by Pablo Larrain (who directed Natalie Portman in the 2016 biopic Jackie), the film will premiere at Venice Film Festival next week, before hitting cinemas on November 9.
“I think some people could misunderstand it,” Larrain said of the film.
“Before they go to see a movie like Spencer, they might say, ‘We’re going to really understand who this person was’.
“No! Wrong number! Wrong movie! We don’t do that! We’re just trying to work with whatever that person was and create a fable out of it. That’s what I’m looking for. We’ll see if it works.”
Following the release of the film’s poster yesterday, eagle-eyed fans were quick to point out the gown in the opening scene is likely a replica of the Diaghilev gown Princess Diana wore on occasions such as a visit to the Royal Opera House and the film premiere of The Living Daylights.
It was designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel, who also created her wedding dress.
