Naomi Watts as Princess Diana

The Australian actress was reportedly aprehensive about taking on the role of Princess Di, saying she is absolutele terrified about her new part. 

Watts went on to say "She is a part of our history, an incredible woman and fascinating but a tragic ending."

Despite her worries, the former Home and Away actress looks every bit the part of the late Princess as the recently released images from the film set show.

The question that remains is, is the world ready for a Princess Diana film? Is it in bad taste or will it prove a legacy to her memory?
