First trailer: Naomi Watts as Princess Diana

FANS of the royal family have had their first taste of Diana, an upcoming biopic starring Naomi Watts as the much loved Princess Diana.

Diana, due for release later this year, covers the last two years of the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and is directed by Downfall's Oliver Hirschbiegel.

The trailer is the first taste fans have had of the film, and it protrays the intense media scrutiny that followed the Princess until her death in a car crash in Paris in 1997.

It also covers her relationship with Dr Hasnat Khan, played by Naveen Andrews.

Vanity Fair reported Watts' intense preparation for the role - including spending six weeks with a dialogue coach and access to Diana's wardrobe - resulted in visits from the late Princess in Watts' dreams.

Diana is scheduled for release on September 5.
