What's Spencer going to be about?

The film will focus on one weekend in Princess Diana's life. As she spends her Christmas holiday with the rest of the royal family at Sandringham and comes to the decision that she must end her marriage to Prince Charles.

This year, things will be a whole lot different."

Stewart, who will play the lead role, said of the film, "Spencer is a dive inside an emotional imagining of who Diana was at a pivotal turning point in her life. It is a physical assertion of the sum of her parts, which starts with her given name; Spencer. It is a harrowing effort for her to return to herself, as Diana strives to hold onto what the name Spencer means to her."

On 25th March, a second photo of Kristen as Diana was released:
