Meet the new Princess Diana and Prince Charles.

This morning, popular Netflix drama The Crown gave fans their first look at Elizabeth Debicki and Dominic West in character as the former royal couple for the upcoming fifth and sixth season of the show.

The new photo shows Debicki donning the late royal's signature short blond hair while laying down on a peach-coloured sofa.

And we have to admit, the 30-year-old actress has a striking resemblance to the People's Princess!

West's debut as Prince Charles, on the other hand, did not go over as smooth, with fans calling for Netflix to re-cast him following the release of a photo showing him dressed in a double-breasted suit and striped tie.

Debicki is best known for her breakout performance in Steve McQueen's 2018 thriller Widows and her roles in 2017's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and 2013's The Great Gatsby.

While West is for his TV drama roles as Jimmy McNulty in The Wire and Noah Solloway in The Affair. His other acting credits include the 2018 film Colette, 2002's Chicago and 2007's 300.
