The story of former Hollywood star Grace Kelly's crisis of marriage and identity, during a political dispute between Monaco's Prince Rainier III and France's Charles De Gaulle, and a looming French invasion of Monaco in the early 1960s.
When the camera first pans into Diana's hotel room, at the very beginning of the movie, a wine glass is seen on a dinner table. This is an exact replica of the real glass used at the dinner where Dodi Fayed proposed to Diana at the Paris Imperial Hotel, minutes before their deaths. Dodi's father, Mohamed Al Fayed, had the wine glass preserved in an acrylic pyramid and now is displayed, as a memorial shrine, at Harrod's in London, England. See more »
When Diana is flying a private jet there's a scene filmed from outside the plane and we can see it's a Embraer Legacy 450 with Tail Registration number PT-TNN. That aircraft did not exist at 1997 and the registration number if for a Brazilian aircraft. See more »
It is not the horror of landmines that is making the headlines back home, but reports of the Princess's romance with Dodi Fayed. Speculation fueled by the arrival last night of a car similar to that owned by the Princess.

This film took me by surprise due to all the negativity surrounding it. It actually turned out to be a decent film that I enjoyed. I've always loved Naomi Watts and she pulls of a great performance. So she doesn't look exactly like Diana - what actress does? Diana was very unique looking and Naomi is definitely the right person for the role.
Naveeen Andrews also pulled a strong performance and the film had good pacing and never got dull. The film was respectable to Diana and I liked how they ended the film.
Please do not judge the film before seeing it. The British press were never going to praise this film. Well done Naomi.. you should be proud of this film.
