Kristen Stewart looks identical to Princess Diana in new BTS snaps from Spencer

Kristen Steward has been spotted on the set of Spencer in Germany and her transformation into Princess Diana is uncanny. 

The Twilight actress, 30, was dressed in a tartan coat and black skirt with her hair coiffed into Diana’s iconic ‘do, but Kristen paired the look with trainers to be more comfortable in between takes. 

Kristen’s outfit is modelled on a similar jacket Princess Diana wore during a visit to Portsmouth in January 1989, with the same black cuffs and lapel.

The new movie, titled Spencer, is currently filming in Dülmen in Germany and will centre around a weekend Diana spends with the Royal family before deciding to divorce Prince Charles. 

Filming is mainly taking place at the Schloss Marquardt in Postdam which has been decked out as Sandringham Estate and will represent three days in the life of Diana over Christmas in 1991. 

The script has been written by Stephen Knight, who also wrote Peaky Blinders, but royal biographers have questioned the accuracy of the timeline. 


Royal biographer Robert Jobson told True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat: ‘I don’t even think she was there that weekend. She wasn’t even at Sandringham, on this supposed weekend.

‘The film will suggest this is where the decision was made to divorce, but she never made that decision. I didn’t think she was at Sandringham after 1990 and this was set in 1991.’

Similar criticism has also surrounded the Netflix drama The Crown after politicians and experts called for there to be a disclaimer telling viewers that the events portrayed are a dramatisation rather than historical fact. 

Director Pablo Larraín also defended casting Kristen, an American, for the role of Diana in Spencer. 

He explained to Deadline: ‘Kristen is one of the greatest actors around today. Kristen can be many things, and she can be very mysterious and very fragile an ultimately very strong as well, which is what we need.

‘The combination of those elements made me think of her. The way she responded to the script and how she is approaching the character, it’s very beautiful to see. 

‘I think she’s going to do something stunning and intriguing at the same time.’
