Ladies and gentlemen, Kristen Stewart has made her debut as Princess Diana!

Neon has released the first image of Stewart from the upcoming film Spencer in which she plays the late royal.

The movie is set over the course of a single weekend in Diana’s life as she spends the Christmas holiday with the royal family at the Sandringham estate in Norfolk. The film tracks Diana’s emotional journey as she comes to a decision to leave her marriage to Prince Charles.

"December 1991: The Prince and Princess of Wales' marriage has long since grown cold," a press release reads. "Though rumours of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at Sandringham Estate. There's eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. This year, things will be a whole lot different."

Spencer is directed by Pablo Larraín and features a script by Steven Knight. The cast also includes Timothy Spall, Sally Hawkins, and Sean Harris.

Neon and Topic Studios are eyeing an autumn 2021 release for Spencer, just ahead of the 25th anniversary of Diana’s death in 2022.

Check out the shot by shot comparison below featuring an image from the film and a real-life image of the Princess of Wales before her death.
