Princess Diana actress Elizabeth Debicki has transformed into the Princess of Wales once again as she filmed scenes for the upcoming series of The Crown in London.

The Australian actress, 31, who is taking over the role from Emma Corrin, effortlessly channelled the late royal by opting for a red puffer jacket, navy baseball cap, black leggings, and brown boots while shooting scenes.

It’s not known exactly what the crew were filming, but Elizabeth’s outfit is strikingly reminiscent of one worn by Her Royal Highness on ski trip to Lech, Austria in 1994, when she took a young Prince William and Prince Harry to the exclusive resort in the Alps.

The Crown’s fifth series of the show will cover the Royal Family‘s history throughout the 1990s. 

Over the first three series of The Crown, the Netflix hit has become well known for bending facts to suit its narrative, and while some artistic license is inevitable, some critics have been outraged in its rewriting of history and relationships.

Showing she is the queen of casual cool, Elizabeth effortlessly oozed ski-chic while shooting the scenes today.

The actress was seen driving an Audi and filmed a scene where she was spotted by a group of men in another car who chase her through some red traffic lights. Diana famously died in 1997 in a car crash after being chased by paparazzi in Paris.

Boasting the Princess of Wales’ signature locks, Elizabeth finished off her look with a smattering of elegant makeup – including blush and a soft pink lip gloss. 

Elizabeth doesn’t appear to be wearing a replica of Diana’s engagement ring. The sapphire piece was worn by the late royal until her divorce was finalised in 1996. 

The last two series of The Crown will cover the Royal Family in the 1990s to 2003. The crew will be picking up the story where it left off in the fourth season.   

The breakdown of Charles and Diana’s relationship will be a central part of the new series.  The fourth series of The Crown, which streamed in November last year, told the story of the early romance between Charles and Diana.

It was announced last year that Elizabeth would take over from Emma Corrin and play Diana for the fifth and sixth series, which will cover Diana’s death in 1997. 

The actress said of her casting last year: ‘Princess Diana’s spirit, her words and her actions live in the hearts of so many. It is my privilege and honour to be joining this masterful series, which has had me absolutely hooked from episode one.’ 

Meanwhile  Dodi Fayed is expected to play a large part in the next series of The Crown, with British actor Khalid Abdalla, 39, who starred in the 2007 film The Kite Runner, cast in the role. 

The final two series of The Crown will cover the Royal Family’s history throughout the 1990s and into 2003, however it is not yet know which moments will be seen.
