EXCLUSIVE PHOTO: Elizabeth Debicki reflects Princess Diana being swarmed by paparazzi alongside Dodi Fayed in their final hours while filming season six of The Crown in London
Elizabeth Debicki mirrored Princess Diana being overrun by paparazzi in her final hours while filming for season six of The Crown.
The Aussie actress, 32, wore a gray suit and black T-shirt identical to the outfit worn by the late royal family on the night of the tragic car accident when she and Dodi Fayed actor Khalid Abdallah entered The Ritz hotel left in London.
Filming in London, the crew were recreating The Ritz Hotel in Paris, the last place Princess Diana was before she passed away in August 1997.

Elizabeth donned Diana’s signature blonde hairdo and walked out of the luxury London hotel into a sea of photographers looking for a picture of the princess.
She wore black sunglasses to try and keep a lower profile.
Also on set was actor Harry Anton, who plays her bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones.
Another familiar face also appeared on set, former Hollyoaks actor Lee Otway, although it is unknown what role he has been cast in the Netflix series.

The cast have been reenacting the lead-up to Diana’s death for several weeks, when Elizabeth was spotted in Barcelona in late October filming from the ill-fated car.
However, Netflix has maintained that the crash itself will not be seen in the series.
Debicki was then seen in the back of a car during production with Khalid Abdalla, 40, who plays Egyptian film producer Dodi.
Francesc Macia Square in the Catalan city got a French makeover in anticipation of Netflix’s return to film the scenes – as fans of the show are still reeling from the release of the trailer for series five.

Filming for series six of the Netflix drama was temporarily halted following the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, but the crew has been seen at work across Europe in recent weeks.
Production recently kicked off in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, where the crew supposedly filmed scenes from Princess Diana’s sailing trip with Dodi in St. Tropez in July 1997, just weeks before they died.
Young actors Rufus Kampa and Will Powell were spotted with Debicki and Abdalla, who played Prince William and Prince Harry, who were also on vacation.
It is also thought the series will feature Dodi in St Tropez with Kelly Fisher – his spurned ex-girlfriend who claimed she would marry the Egyptian billionaire’s son just days after photos emerged of him on a yacht with the princess.
