The poster for Spencer, a biopic about Princess Diana has been released, and it’s beautiful and heartbreaking altogether, claim royal fans…

This week, CinemaCon announced that the highly awaited film would make its premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September.

It would then be released in cinemas worldwide on 5 November.


CinemaCon has also privately released a first-look trailer of the film.

In it, Kristen Stewart channels just three days in the life of the “Princess of the People”, Diana Spencer, including her tumultuous marriage to former husband Prince Charles.

Distributor Neon revealed that the film — directed by Pablo Larraín — would give viewers a glimpse into “one fateful weekend” of Diana’s life.

“The marriage of Princess Diana and Prince Charles has long since grown cold. Though rumors of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at the Queen’s Sandringham Estate. There’s eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. But this year, things will be profoundly different,” reads a synopsis of the film.

In one particular scene, Charles admonishes his wife over rumours she is unfaithful to him. 

“Sometimes you get delayed by someone, and no one says anything,” she responds to him, alluding to his affair with longtime mistress and now-wife Camilla Parker Bowles.

Film critics are already praising Kristen’s portrayal of the troubled royal and are even tipping her for an Oscar nomination.

“Based on the footage, it looks like Kristen Stewart will be getting an Oscar nomination for her performance as Diana. I’m feeling very confident that this is going to be #KristenStewart’s big moment,” film connoisseur Scott Menzel tweeted.

Another hailed the actress’s “flawless” English accent.


The hard-hitting Spencer poster along with the tagline: “Every fairy tale ends” has received widespread acclaim from movie critics and royal fans.

In the image, Princess Diana is doubled over in grief as she weeps into an elaborate ball gown. 

The new movie poster for Kristen Stewart’s soon to be released Spencer is both beautiful and heartbreaking”, tweeted one fan.

“Would it be weird to get the Spencer poster framed and hang it above my bed”, asked another.

And US ticketing company Fandango tweeted the ultimate compliment: “This Spencer poster is worthy of museum placement”.
