The actors playing Princess Diana, Prince William and Prince Harry were pictured filming scenes in Scotland for the upcoming series of The Crown.

The Crown has started filming again for the fifth season as the storyline continues to explore The Queen's reign as well as the demise of Princess Diana and Prince Charles' marriage.

This week, actress Elizabeth Debicki was pictured filming scenes for the upcoming series with the two actors who have been cast as Prince Harry and Prince William.

In the new pictures, Debicki is dressed as Diana, wearing a pink shirt with jeans and a navy blazer and – of course – her hair cut into the classic Diana bob.

This location was also used in season four of The Crown, in scenes where Diana first visits with Charles at the beginning of their courtship.

The Crown has revamped the entire cast for the fifth series of the hit Netflix show, something they do every two seasons to reflect the ageing characters.

Actress Imelda Staunton is taking over the role of The Queen from Olivia Coleman, while Elizabeth Debicki is replacing Emma Corrin as Diana.

Lesley Manville has replaced Helena Bonham-Carter as Princess Margaret, Jonathan Pryce has replaced Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip and Dominic West will take on the role of Prince Charles from Josh O'Connor.
