EXCLUSIVE PICTURE: Kristen Stewart is first seen with the young actors playing Princes William and Harry as she transforms into the late Princess Diana to film the new biopic Spencer
- Kristen Stewart, 30, was seen on Monday helping the two young actors out of a car while filming in London
- Last June, it was revealed that the Twilight actress, 30, would portray the late royal family in a film dramatizing a ‘critical’ weekend in the early 90s.
- The announcement met with mixed response, including anger over not casting a British actress and claiming that Kristen, 30, doesn’t look enough like Diana.
- Other actresses who have played the late Royal include Emma Corrin in The Crown last year and Naomi Watts for the biopic Diana in 2013.
Kristen Stewart was the spitting image of the late Princess Diana when she filmed scenes with the child actors playing her two sons on Monday.
The actress, 30, turned into the royal while working on a set on London’s Old Kent Road and was seen stepping out of a Porsche alongside the two young stars portraying Princess William and Harry.
Kristen looked good, wearing a navy blazer over light jeans and a baseball cap as she helped the two boys out of the sports car.

In a new promotional shot for the film, Kristen perfectly replicates the Princess of Wales’s stunning look while wearing a tartan blazer that became known as one of her most iconic looks.
Filming for Spencer has been going on for several weeks, with the film set to portray the late royal family in a dramatized version of a ‘critical’ weekend in the early 1990s, when Diana decided that her wedding to Prince Charles did not work.
The image shows Kristen smiling gently into the camera, along with her signature head tilt, a cream turtleneck sweater and a checked blazer.

It was a look that Diana famously wore when she visited Portsmouth in 1989, where she met the town’s mayor and residents at the Eastney Community Center.
The image also provides a telling hint about the movie’s setting, as Kristen’s Diana is still wearing her striking blue engagement ring, along with oversized pearl earrings.
Spencer follows the break-up of her high-profile 15-year marriage to Prince Charles and is primarily filmed at Schloss Marquardt in Potsdam – a castle that also serves as the Sandringham Estate.
The story is said to take place over three days during one of Diana’s last Christmas days at the House of Windsor on their Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England in 1991.
Written by English screenwriter Steven Knight, who also wrote Peaky Blinders, the script follows the moments when Diana realized she ‘had to deviate from a path that would line her up to one day become queen’.
