17 Iconic Princess Diana Outfits Perfectly Recreated In 'The Crown' Season 5

17 Iconic Princess Diana Outfits Perfectly Recreated In ‘The Crown’ Season 5

The highly anticipated fifth season of The crown finally landed on Netflix, alongside an all-new cast to portray all the drama and scandal the royal family went through in the 90s.

While fans criticized the casting choices for the latest installment (I’m sorry, but Dominic West is way too attractive to play Prince Charles), there was plenty of praise for Elizabeth Debicki’s performance as Princess Diana.

From the first episode, Elizabeth channels the very essence of Diana – from her mannerisms to her emotional struggles and, of course, the love she feels for William and Harry.

It wouldn’t have been possible without That of the Crown incredible costume department, who drew inspiration from and recreated a number of Diana’s most iconic outfits. So, let’s take a closer look at what was depicted in the Netflix series compared to what Diana wore in real life.

First, here’s Diana in a floral dress in the Season 5 premiere as she prepares to leave for a “second honeymoon” with Charles. In real life, Diana wore a similar dress when she visited Nigeria in 1990.

In the same episode, Diana wears an off-white top and skirt, with a matching belt. In real life, Diana wore an almost identical outfit during a trip to Egypt in 1992.
