There's a Princess Diana musical coming to Broadway

Princess Diana's life has been immortalised in this soon-to-be Broadway musical.

Royal fans will flock to the theatre when Diana hits the stage next March. The musical will chart the people's princess' life from her marriage to Prince Charles, through to her tragic death. 

The show will be in good hands with the team from the Tony-Award winning Memphis backing the production and British stage actor Jeanna de Waal starring as Diana.

While stepping into Lady Diana Spencer's shoes may be daunting, Jeanna is tackling the challenge head on.

“To bring Diana to life onstage is obviously a huge privilege,” Jeanna said in a video interview. “I feel very daunted by the prospect, but I hope people who didn’t know about her and weren’t aware of her journey leave the theatre with an idea of what she did for the world. She made everyone feel special, from the highest person to the lowest-ranking person, and I think we want to celebrate her.”
