Elizabeth Debicki looked the spitting image of Princess Diana as she was snapped filming the next season of The Crown.

The 30 year old actress is taking over from Emma Corrin as the late Princess in the coming fifth season of the show, which will further explore the relationship breakdown between herself and Prince Charles.

Elizabeth and her co-star Dominic West, who is portraying Prince Charles, were spotted at Dunsfold Aerodrome recreating a time when the royals were arriving for a private flight to Italy with sons Prince William and Prince Harry.

The Aussie actress looks the spitting image of Diana in the shots as she sports the shorter blond hair Diana was well known for.

The group were reportedly filmed getting out of a brown jaguar before climbing on board a Royal Air Force plane for the scene.

The new series is set to begin in 1990 and follows the breakdown of the couple's relationship prior to Diana’s tragic death.

Speaking to Modern Luxury Manhattan about her coming part in the show, Elizabeth said: “[Diana's] like a symbol— like a magical person, I’m coming to understand more intimately how she existed and still exists very profoundly in collective consciousness.

“I think it’s amazing that from age 7, I would remember somebody who had no actual impact on my life as a child in Australia—and yet I was very aware of her presence in the world.

“I remember seeing her face on magazines. My mother was very aware of her, as I think a lot of women close to her age were. She really followed her quite intimately because she represented something extremely human and extremely symbolic.”

Speaking about the pull that Diana had on the public consciousness at the time and since, Debicki praised the Princess for her ability to “raise people up” around her.

She continued: “The thing that is universal is a combination of kindness and compassion and her ability to illuminate—illuminate people or issues, to draw awareness. That was an incredible power, which I think she used extremely intelligently and compassionately.

“You have this gift of attention, and if you choose, you can bring an enormous amount of positive attention and education to issues that need to be reexamined or examined at all, like the things that [Diana] did for the AIDS crisis and what she did for the land mine crisis.

“There are only a few people, really, who come into that level, who have that kind of standing in our collective memory and really raise people up around them. It’s an extraordinary gift, and I really think she had that.”
