Before Kate Middleton, there was Diana Spencer: the people’s princess. She gave birth to princes William and Harry, was cheated on, divorced and unceremoniously dumped from the royal family like a figgy pudding on Boxing Day.
The new biopic Diana, starring Naomi Watts, focuses on the princess’ post-Charles life. The teaser trailer shows her numerous humanitarian activities as well as her secret relationship with heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Khan. There’s plenty of emoting here, Watts spends much of the teaser staring off into the distance or running dramatically through the night. It also suggests the film will focus intently on the differences between Diana’s public and private personas: smiling for the cameras, heart breaking behind closed doors.
Diana hits theaters (cinemas) this September.
