The Crown has found the final actress to step into Princess Diana’s royal shoes.

Although season 4 of the hit series has yet to be released, Netflix announced on Sunday that Australian actress Elizabeth Debicki has been cast to play Diana in the show’s fifth and sixth seasons.

Debicki, 29, whose credits include roles in The Night Manager and Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, will be taking over the role from Emma Corrin, who portrays Diana in the upcoming fourth season.

“Princess Diana’s spirit, her words and her actions live in the hearts of so many. It is my true privilege and honour to be joining this masterful series, which has had me absolutely hooked from episode one,” the actress said in a statement.

She joins a cast which includes Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, and Lesley Manville, who will take over the role of Princess Margaret.
