The Crown has given the first glimpse at actress Emma Corrin as Princess Diana on her wedding day.

Series four of the Netflix royal drama will follow Prince Charles’s relationship with Lady Diana Spencer.

Corrin will be playing the princess and pictures released by both Netflix and the actress show her in Diana’s wedding dress from July 2018 for the first time.

A post on The Crown’s Twitter account said: “A first glimpse of Princess Diana’s wedding dress.

“Emmy award-winning costume designer Amy Roberts wanted to capture the same spirit and style of David & Elizabeth Emanuel’s original design, without creating a replica for Emma Corrin.”

Corrin shared two images on her Instagram, with the second showing her filming alongside actor Josh O’Connor, who will play her on-screen husband Charles, the Prince of Wales.

She captioned the two images with a teaser for the release date of the new series, saying: “Tick tock tick tock 15.11.20.”

Diana’s original dress for her wedding to Charles featured a 25-foot train and around 10,000 pearls.

The fourth series of the hit Netflix show is set in the 1970s as Olivia Colman’s Queen and her family find themselves preoccupied with safeguarding the line of succession by securing an appropriate bride for Charles, who is still unmarried at 30.

It also documents tension between the monarch and Margaret Thatcher, played by Gillian Anderson, as the Prime Minister leads the country into the Falklands War, generating conflict within the Commonwealth.

The fourth series also stars Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Tobias Menzies as the Duke of Edinburgh, Erin Doherty as Princess Anne and Marion Bailey as the Queen Mother.

It has previously been announced that Imelda Staunton will replace Colman as the Queen for the final two series of the show, while Jonathan Pryce will play Philip, Elizabeth Debicki will play Diana and Lesley Manville will play Margaret.

The fourth series of The Crown will stream on Netflix from November 15.
