The magazine shared a photo of actress Elizabeth Debicki, who plays Princess Diana. This was reportedly taken earlier this week during a scene where Diana took a trip to Bosnia. This took place in 1997, not long before the tragic accident later that year.

Last week, filming of the series was halted "out of respect" for Queen Elizabeth. The British queen died Thursday at the age of 96.

Sixth season

The sixth season would feature events in the 1990s, with the period surrounding Princess Diana's death in 1997. It was recently announced that Rufus Kampa (16) had been cast as Prince Harry and Ed McVey (21) as Prince William. This would correctly indicate that the season may be set in the early 2000s. Officially, nothing is yet known about the storyline.

Six seasons

What is certain is that a total of six seasons of the series will be made. The fifth season will be released on Netflix later this year. The role of Elizabeth has been played by actress Imelda Staunton in the last two seasons.
