Although a work of fiction, the show draws inspiration from several real-life events that the Royal Family saw over the years.

A new statement by Emma Corrin, who plays Princess Diana in the show, has stirred some conversation. The British actor identifies as non-binary and goes by the pronouns they/them. And they made some comments about how they perceive Princess Diana’s 'queerness'.

Emma Corrin’s take on Princess Diana

In a recent interview, the actor explicitly stated that Princess Diana was ‘queer’ in so many ways, as per The Insider. Their reason for saying this was the fact that the late Princess was an ‘other’ when it came to the Royal Family. In addition, Diana was one of the few Royal Family members to acknowledge, embrace and welcome 'outsiders'.

This is certainly a different perspective on Princess Diana, and one that remains unverified. It just so happens that both actors Corrin and Kristen Stewart, who played Diana in the movie Spencer, identify as queer.
