Naomi Watts is playing Princess Diana in the upcoming movie about the last years of her life. The Oliver Hirschbiegel-directed film, currently titled Diana, examines her relationship with Dr. Hasnat Khan (Lost’s Naveen Andrews).

Previously, Watts said in a press release, “It is such an honor to be able to play this iconic role — Princess Diana was loved across the world and I look forward to rising to the challenge of playing her on screen.”

But now we finally get to see the first official photo of Watts as Diana. Judging by the hair, the kind eyes, and the diamonds, Watts has the right look.
