Kristen Stewart is unrecognisable as Princess Diana as she transforms for new royal movie Spencer
KRISTEN Stewart is unrecognisable as Princess Diana as she transforms for her new royal movie, Spencer.
The 30-year-old actress will play the late Princess in the new film, which centres on three days around 1991 at the Royal Family's Sandringham Estate, where they usually spend the festive season.
Over Christmas Eve, Christmas, and Boxing Day, Diana realises that her marriage to Prince Charles has unravelled and revaluates the direction her life has taken.
The story will show her tough decision to leave the Royal Family for good and focus on the strength she found in difficult times.
Filming began in January in Germany but has since moved to the UK and now a new picture has been released of Kristen in character.
The Twilight actress is unrecognisable with Diana's floppy blonde hair replacing her usual edgy styles.
Kristen also wore a tartan jacket and cream polo neck just like the outfit Diana wore for a visit to Portsmouth in January 1989.
In an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kristin discussed the challenges that came with portraying such the iconic Princess, who died in a car accident in Paris in August 1997.
Kristen said: "It's hard not to feel protective over her. She was so young.
"Everyone's perspective is different, and there's no way to get everything right, what is fact in relation to personal experience."
She also opened up about how she has prepared for the role, telling Entertainment Tonight: "This is a really kind of poetic, really internalized imagining of maybe the heaviest three days’ time before she does something as gnarly as leaving the royal family.
"I'm just sort of reading everything that I can and then forgetting it, because it's kind of a really internalized story."
Poldark actor Jack Farthing has been cast as Prince Charles while the rest of the cast includes Timothy Spall, Sally Hawkins and Sean Harris.
Spencer is expected to be released later this year.
