Princess Diana is making her way to Netflix!

Today Netflix released the first official trailer for Diana - the musical based on the real-life story of Princess Diana - ahead of it's premiere on the streaming platform on October 1.

The show was expected to arrive at Broadway’s Longacre Theater on March 31 last year, but was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Which means for the first time in Broadway's history, a filmed version of the stage production will be available for streaming ahead of the musical's opening date.

Jeanna de Waal (Kinky Boots, American Idiot) and Roe Hartrampf take on the title roles of the People's Princess and her husband Prince Charles.

They will be joined by Erin Davie as Camilla Parker Bowles and two-time Tony Award-winner Judy Kaye as Queen Elizabeth.

Announcing the news, the producers said: "We speak for the entire company when we say that we couldn't be more excited to finally be able share our show with theatre lovers everywhere.

"Though there is no substitute for the live theatre, we are honoured to be a part of the quality entertainment that Netflix provides its subscribers worldwide." 

Set in 1981, the musical follows Diana as she prepares to marry Charles.

The show also explores the aftermath of that marriage, from her husband’s highly publicised affair with Camilla to her relationship with the press.
