LORRAINE KELLY has branded the new film about Princess Diana “very bizarre”, while questioning what Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle would make of it. However, the ITV host also praised actress Kristen Stewart for her “beautiful” portrayal of the late royal in Spencer.
Lorraine Kelly has shared her take on the new Princess Diana movie, Spencer, after watching a preview of the Pablo Larrain film. The ITV star said it was “one of the better movies” about the Princess of Wales, who was born Diana Frances Spencer.
Twilight star Kirsten Stewart takes on the role of the popular royal in the lead up to her divorce from Prince Charles, who is played by Jack Farthing in the film.
The couple’s children Prince William and Prince Harry also feature in the movie, while other royals make fleeting appearances.
“I do wonder what they [Harry and Meghan] are going to think about that movie Spencer.
“It’s very bizarre,” Lorraine said, while speaking to The Mirror’s royal editor Russell Myers on her breakfast show today.
“It’s actually, probably, one of the better films about Diana. There have been some right clunkers, haven’t there?” she continued.
“But it’s really all about her and it’s about a woman unravelling. And I have to say, Kristen Stewart does it beautifully, it’s an incredible portrait.
“It’s quite graphic and unsettling though.”
The 2021 film is set for release on November 5, although it premiered at the Venice Film Festival last month.
Lorraine said the actors who play Diana’s sons are “super”.
Jack Nielen takes on the role of a young Prince William alongside Freddie Spry as Prince Harry.
Lorraine went on to say that the film included some very bizarre scenes.
One of which showed Prince Charles giving his wife and Camilla the same necklace for Christmas.
Another, she said, saw Kirsten as Diana, eating pearls in her head.

Later this month, Prince William will host a party to celebrate the unveiling of a statue at Kensington Palace in honour of his late mother.
The mum-of-two died on September 6, 1997.
The initial unveiling, which took place in August, marked what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday.
