It has been over twenty years since Princess Diana’s death but the world is still fascinated by the life of Princess Diana. The late-Princess Diana was not like any other royal family member. She looked like a princess, waved like a princess, and did all the things princesses do, but she also understood the value of her platform and used it wisely to connect and bond with the public. This is why she was known as the People’s Princess. A few months ago, the director of ‘Spencer’ Pablo Larrian revealed that Kristen Stewart will play the character of Princess Diana. However, did you know Kristen Stewart was the first choice to play Princess Diana?

What will ‘Spencer’ be about?
The film ‘Spencer’ is all about Princess Diana’s life in the years leading up to her death when she was struggling in her marriage with Prince Charles and trying to decide as to how she will spend her future.
Talking about the film, the director Larrain revealed in an interview with “Deadline”, that he is obsessed with Princess Diana and her life, especially the royal part of her life. He grew up reading fairy tales and sees this as the antithesis of that trope. “We all grew up, at least I did in my generation, reading and understanding what a fairy tale is. Usually, the prince comes and finds the princess, invites her to become his wife and eventually she becomes queen. That is the fairy tale. When someone decides not to be the queen, and says, ‘I’d rather go and be myself’, it’s a big decision, a fairy tale upside down. I’ve always been very surprised by that and thought it must have been very hard to do. That is the heart of the movie”.
