Season four of The Crown has left viewers and critics alike divided, with many declaring it as overly sensationalised or misleadingly inaccurate. Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Oliver Dowden has even raised concerns, according to The Telegraph, over the season’s fictional representation of the Royals. One thing we can’t deny though, is the commendable job costume designer Amy Roberts did with replicating a series of Princess Diana’s (played by Emma Louise Corrin) most iconic looks. Whatever your thoughts on The Crown’s portrayal, Roberts’ designs are pretty true-to-fact. We detail our top 10 favourite looks here.
