‘The Crown,’ a Netflix series’ fan can soon watch Princess Diana get married again. The official Twitter profile of Netflix’s ‘The Crown’ shared a post of Emma Corrin on the stage of the original series, which demonstrates the actress playing a role as the late British royal.
Emma Corrin, at the age of 24, looks off from some distance in a gown that looks very similar to the gown of the late Princess Diana that she wore at her wedding on the 29th of July 1981.

The first glimpse of the wedding dress of Princess Diana And Emmy award winner dress designer Amy Roberts wished to capture the similar spirit and style of David and Elizabeth Emanuel’s real design, without making a copy for Emma Corrin.
A popular video streaming giant, Netflix, posted a trailer clip at the end of the August for The Crown’s 4th season, which gave the brief sneak peek of the iconic dress from the rear, showing it stayed true to the extremely long train Princess Diana’s wedding costume actually featured.
Princess Diana, in 1981, created headings for her tusk silk taffeta and antique gown decorated with lace that included a twenty-five-foot train. Moreover, Princess Diana’s tulle veil was even extremely long at 459 feet.
Welsh fashion designer to help Netflix costume designer to accomplish close replica
David Emanuel, 67, Welsh fashion designer, made the original gown of Princess Diana. And last month, Emma Corrin told British Vogue that, for this pivotal remaking, Emanuel offered dress designers of Netflix the way and patterns to create a close copy of the costume.
In an interview with the fashion publication, Emma Corrin described that they were shooting the scene when you first watch her in the wedding costume; she thinks it was Lancaster House in London, and she had a group of around ten people helping her to put it on because it is huge and massive. Corrin added that she walked out and people went completely silent and above anything else she wears in the series, it is so, it is her.
