Princess Diana was previously played by Emma Corwin, who won a Golden Globe and is nominated for an Emmy for the season 4 portrayal. West takes over for Josh O’Connor, who also won a Golden Globe and is nominated for an Emmy for his work as Diana’s husband last season.

"Princess Diana's spirit, her words and her actions live in the hearts of so many," Debicki previously said, per Entertainment Weekly. "It is my true privilege and honor to be joining this masterful series, which has had me absolutely hooked from Episode One."

Debicki and West will co-star alongside Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret, and Jonny Lee Miller as John Major.

While the show’s 5th season is set to take place during the ‘90s, it is still unknown if it will include Diana’s fatal car crash in 1997.

Netflix has yet to announce a premiere date for the 5th season, but a release isn’t expected until 2022.

After launching in 2016, “The Crown” is set to end its course with its 6th season.
