Princess Diana is one of the most loved figures in the history of the British Monarchy. Yet, her life behind the fancy title of one of the world’s most well-known royal families wasn’t so fancy at all. Starring Naomi Watts as the tragic princess, the movie focuses on the last two years of the life of Diana. The movie <Diana> is produced based on the novel <Diana: Her Last Love>, which is quite fictional, and is more like a romantic movie than a biographical movie. After getting divorced from Prince Charles, Diana throws away her former title of ‘princess’ and lives a new life as just ‘Diana’, herself. Soon, she meets and falls in love with a man named Hasnat Khan, who does not treat her as a former princess but just a woman. Adored by millions but loved by one, the story of the all-time most loved princess is about to be unfolded on screen.
