All that preparation, Debicki explained, happened on a particularly memorable day on set at the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens, the same place where Diana wore the dress in 1994.
“It’s a powerful dress,” the actress explained. “It’s also a totally unique dress – its structure, its shape, its appearance – and so I’ll definitely never forget that day on set. We shot it in the same location where it actually happened, so there was this slightly deep layering of things that were happening that day.”
