Meanwhile, Elizabeth, who is best known for her roles in The Night Manager and Tenet, looks uncanny as Diana, and is lounging on a pale pink sofa while a letter resting on her stomach as she looks pensively to the side. 

Netflix has already treated us to the first look at Imelda Staunton as the Queen, who looks incredibly like Her Majesty in a yellow ensemble. The actress will be portraying the monarch for season six, after the show’s creator Peter Morgan confirmed that they would be extending the show after initially confirming that it would only run for five seasons.

Speaking about the role, she said: "I could not be happier to be playing Princess Margaret. The baton is being passed on from two formidable actresses and I really don't want to let the side down. Furthermore, to play siblings with my dear friend Imelda Staunton will be nothing short of a complete joy.”
