PICTURE EXCLUSIVE: Kristen Stewart is the spitting image of the late Princess Diana as she’s seen for the first time with the young actors playing Princes William and Harry while filming new biopic Spencer
Kristen Stewart was the spitting image of the late Princess Diana as she filmed scenes with the child actors playing her two sons on Wednesday.
The actress, 30, transformed into the royal while working on a set on the Old Kent Road in London and was seen getting out of a Porsche alongside the two young stars portraying Princes William and Harry.
Looking every inch the part, Kristen donned a navy blazer over light jeans as well as a baseball cap as she helped the two boys out of the sportscar.

In a new promotional shot for the film Kristen perfectly replicates the Princess of Wales’ stunning gaze while sporting a tartan blazer that became known as one of her most iconic looks.
Filming for Spencer has been underway for several weeks, with the film set to depict the late royal in a dramatised version of a ‘critical’ weekend in the early 1990s, when Diana decided that her marriage to Prince Charles wasn’t working.
The image shows Kristen softly smiling into the camera along with her signature head tilt, sporting a cream polo neck jumper and tartan blazer.

It was a look famously worn by Diana while she paid a visit to Portsmouth in 1989, meeting the town’s mayor and residents at Eastney Community Centre.
The image also offers a telling hint about the film’s setting, as Kristen’s Diana is still wearing her eye-catching blue engagement ring, along with oversized pearl earrings.
Spencer will follow the breakdown of her high-profile, 15-year marriage to Prince Charles and is primarily being filmed at the Schloss Marquardt in Potsdam – a castle which is doubling as Sandringham Estate.
The story is said to take place over three days during one of Diana’s final Christmases at the House of Windsor in their Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England in 1991.
The script, written by English screenwriter Steven Knight, who has also written Peaky Blinders, follows the moments Diana realised she ‘needed to veer from a path that put her in line to one day be queen’.
