Lady Diana Spencer, aka Princess Diana, will be featured in an upcoming season of Netflix's The Crown.

British newcomer Emma Corrin will play the ill-fated future wife of Prince Charles in the drama series.

Corrin's credits include a guest part on the PBS series Grantchester and the upcoming projects Pennyworth for TV and Misbehaviour for the big screen.

In a statement on Tuesday, Corrin said she was honoured to be joining The Crown and called the late Diana an “icon” who remains an inspiration.

Series creator Peter Morgan said Corrin has Diana's youthful innocence and beauty, along with the range to portray her shift from teenage anonymity to fame.

Corrin will join The Crown in season four. The drama's third season is due out this year, though the release date is yet to be announced.
