The Crown's Elizabeth Debicki continues filming series five in London

The Crown’s Elizabeth Debicki mirrors Princess Diana in a camel coat and thigh-high boots as she continues filming series five in London

  • Elizabeth Debicki, 31, who is taking over the role from Emma Corrin, effortlessly channelled Princess Diana
  • The Australian actress donned a camel coat and thigh-high brown boots when filming today in London
  • She completed the chic look with a check blazer under her garment coat and a stylish grey handbag 
  • As filming continues on the Netflix hit show The Crown, new photographs have once again captured the stunning transformation of Elizabeth Debicki into The Princess of Wales.

    The Australian actress, 31, who is taking over the role from Emma Corrin, effortlessly channelled Princess Diana by opting for a camel coat – seemingly a signature piece in the late royal’s wardrobe – and thigh-high brown boots, teamed with white trousers and a matching high-neck jumper.

    Completing the chic look with a check blazer under her garment coat and a stylish grey handbag, Elizabeth was seen pushing her way through the paparazzi after getting out of a replica of Diana’s Audi 80 Cabriolet in London, in photographs taken during filming today.

    While it is unknown what exact scene was being filmed for the hit drama, the Crown’s fifth series of the show will cover the Royal Family‘s history throughout the 1990s. It is thought the scenes are set after 1996, since Elizabeth doesn’t appear to be wearing a replica of Diana’s engagement ring. The sapphire piece was worn by the late royal until her divorce was finalised.

    Over the first three series of The Crown, the Netflix hit has become well known for bending facts to suit its narrative, and while some artistic license is inevitable, some critics have been outraged in its rewriting of history and relationships.

    The actress was seen getting out of a vehicle inspired by Diana’s 1994 Audi 80 Cabriolet. The dark green convertible with a white interior was likely one of the most photographed cars of the ’90s.

    It’s unclear which outfit of Diana’s the costume department is trying to mirror in these scenes, but the late royal was known for her elegant displays in numerous sophisticated ensembles.  

    The last two series of The Crown will cover the Royal Family in the 1990s to 2003. The crew will be picking up the story where it left off in the fourth season.
