One of the most sought-out castings has been finalised! Actor Elizabeth Debicki has boarded the Netflix royal drama The Crown as Princess Diana. She will play people's princess in the fifth and sixth seasons of the show.

Debicki is known for her performances in The Tale, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, The Night Manager and Widows. She will play a significant role in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming espionage thriller Tenet.

The official Twitter handle of The Crown confirmed the news. The tweet read, “Elizabeth Debicki will play Princess Diana in the final two seasons of The Crown (Seasons 5 and 6).”

It was accompanied by Elizabeth Debicki’s statement. The statement read, “Princess Diana’s spirit, her words and her actions live in the hearts of so many. It is my true privilege and honour to be joining this masterful series, which has had me absolutely hooked from episode one.”

The Crown, which traces the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, casts new actors every two seasons due to chronological progression. Imelda Staunton will play Queen Elizabeth II in the final two seasons, taking over from Olivia Colman, who herself took over from Claire Foy after the first two seasons.
