It’s been 16 years since Diana’s death, and from the size of the crowds in the Square it would appear that public interest in the former Princess of Wales hasn’t waned. Nor it seems has press interest, and we joined the huddled masses of journalists, packed into the press pens waiting to speak to the stars and cast of the movie.
Our aim for the evening was simple, to find out what it was like for the cast and crew to recreate a little known period in the life of one of the 20th Century’s most famous women. Amongst the interviewees were director, Oliver Hirschbiegel, actor Naveen Andrews, of course star Naomi Watts and writer Stephen Jeffreys, who also spoke about taking licence when coming to adapting a real-life story into a movie.

If that’s whetted your appetite, you can catch Diana when it hits cinemas on the 20th September.
