Directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, the drama will centre on the last two years of the Princess's life and will explore her alleged affair with heart surgeon Dr Hasnat Khan, played by Naveen Andrews.

Naomi Watts, who beat Jessica Chastain to the role of Princess Diana, said in an interview: "It is such an honour to be able to play this iconic role - Princess Diana was loved across the world, and I look forward to rising to the challenge of playing her on screen."
