It was one of the most anticipated royal weddings, and now The Crown will be taking viewers back to Prince Charles and Princess Diana's 1981 wedding.

Fans of the show were first given a glimpse of Emma Corrin in the iconic dress in the teaser released in August.

The streaming service shared the first look picture of the 24-year-old decked in full wedding regalia with the caption: "A first glimpse of Princess Diana's wedding dress. Emmy award-winning costume designer Amy Roberts wanted to capture the same spirit and style of David & Elizabeth Emanuel's original design, without creating a replica for Emma Corrin."

In the upcoming season, Prince Charles' (Josh O'Connor) romance with Lady Diana will take centre stage.
