The Crown star looks identical to Princess Diana in first look at Netflix show

The next season of Netflix hit series The Crown is underway, with viewers set to see Princess Diana on their screens, with relatively unknown actress Emma Corrin portraying the much-loved member of the Royal Family.

The 24-year-old actress will play the Princess of Wales between the ages of 18 and 22, and she's been filming scenes already, capturing Diana's likeness eerily well.

Production of The Crown was captured by paparazzi, with Emma recreating Princess Diana's arrival at the Barnado's Champion Awards.

The rising star was photographed in a skintight floral frock, with a one-sleeve design, waving at the paparazzi who were part of the scene.

She can be seen with Diana's trademark bouffant and sweet smile, which viewers will see for real when The Crown season four hits Netflix.

The third season dropped in November 2019, with the second being released in December 2017, though a release date for season four is yet to be confirmed.

However Prince Charles actor Josh O'Connor suggested the new episodes will land later this year, telling Harper's Bazaar: "I'm really looking forward to finishing that and then getting to share it sometime in 2020, I guess."

Speaking of joining the show, Emma, who has also starred in Pennyworth, said: "I have been glued to the show and to think I'm now joining this incredibly talented acting family is surreal.

"Princess Diana was an icon and her effect on the world remains profound and inspiring. To explore her through Peter Morgan's writing is the most exceptional opportunity and I will strive to do her justice."

She added to The Hollywood Reporter: "When you are reading about Diana, you want to sift all the bulls*** from the truth."

Meanwhile The Crown's creator, Peter Morgan, said of the actress: "Emma is a brilliant talent who immediately captivated us when she came in for the part of Diana Spencer.

"As well as having the innocence and beauty of a young Diana, she also has, in abundance, the range and complexity to portray an extraordinary woman who went from anonymous teenager to becoming the most iconic woman of her generation."
