The film will be directed by Pablo Larraín and scripted by Steven Knight. The film covers a critical weekend in the early ‘90s, when Diana decided her marriage to Prince Charles wasn’t working and that she needed to veer from a path that put her in line to one day be queen.
The drama takes place over three days, in one of her final Christmas holidays in the House of Windsor in their Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England.

Th Production of the much anticipated film is expected to begin in early 2021.
“We all grew up, at least I did in my generation, reading and understanding what a fairy tale is,” Larraín told Deadline. “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 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.
It’s a great universal story that can reach millions and millions of people, and that’s what we want to do. We want to make a movie that goes wide, connects with a worldwide audience that is interested in such a fascinating life.” said film Director Pablo Larraín.
The director added that “Kristen is one of the great actors around today,” Larraín said.
“To do this well, you need something very important in film, which is mystery. 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.
Kristen Stewart knows a thing or two about the dark side of fame. Never saw this casting coming but I'm into it. Most excited that she's collaborating with Pablo Larraín. https://t.co/M2mRHx7val— Nigel M. Smith (@nigelmfs) June 17, 2020
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. She is this force of nature.
“We believe that this is a movie that could create interest around the planet,” Larraín said. “This is a beloved, iconic women and we have everything in front of us to do a beautiful movie and we are working very hard to get it made.”
