Kristen Stewart stepped out in Chanel on Thursday night (7 October), for the premiere of her new film Spencer at The Royal Festival Hall in London. But her young co-stars were quite the scene stealers, as Jackie Nielen, who plays Prince William, and Freddie Spry, who stars as Prince Harry, appeared alongside her.

The eagerly-anticipated film takes place over one specific weekend in the early nineties - when the late royal decides to end her marriage to Prince Charles, during one of her final Christmas holidays with the royal family at their Sandringham estate.

You can catch sight of the boys in the movie's trailer but this red carpet moment gives us a chance to get a good look at them alongside their on-screen mother, with clear affection and chemistry between the three as Steward pushes back Jacki's hair and can be seen laughing and joking together.

While Stewart looks very young to be playing their mother, she is in fact 31, a year older than Diana would have been during the year the film is set, 1991. Reminding us how young the late princess was.

The film has a very impressive 90% score on Rotten Tomatoes and Stewart has received glowing reviews for her "tender" and "mesmerising" portrayal of Diana in the drama written by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight, and directed by Chilean director Pablo Larraín, known for his work on the critically acclaimed 2016 Jackie Kennedy biopic, Jackie, starring Natalie Portman.

We can't imagine what a surreal experience it was for the young British actors but they appeared to be taking it in their stride.
