The first image of Elizabeth Debicki as Diana, Princess of Wales in The Crown has been released. The Australian actress, who is best known for her roles in The Night Manager and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, will play the royal in the final two seasons of the Netflix show.

The image shows Debicki deep in thought as she lays on a sofa – and the likeness to Princess Diana is uncanny.

“Princess Diana’s spirit, her words and her actions live in the hearts of so many," said Debicki at the time of the casting announcement last summer. "It is my true privilege and honour to be joining this masterful series, which has had me absolutely hooked from episode one.”

Debicki replaces Emma Corrin, who made her debut as the young princess in The Crown in season four.

Other casting announcements for the last two seasons of the hit show include Imelda Staunton, who succeeds Olivia Colman as the Queen; Leslie Manville who takes over from Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret; and Jonathan Pryce, who follows fellow Game of Thrones alumni Tobias Menzies to play Prince Philip. Meanwhile, Dominic West will play Prince Charles.

“The Crown keeps raising the bar with each new season," said Cindy Holland, Netflix’s vice-president of original content. "We can’t wait for audiences to see the upcoming fourth season, and we’re proud to support Peter’s vision and the phenomenal cast and crew for a sixth and final season.”
