Back in February, Naomi Watts said she was looking forward to "rising to the challenge" of playing Princess Diana on screen.

It appears that she's done just that – in the looks department, at least.

Watts, 43, (who will star in next year's biopic Caught in Flight about Diana, Princess of Wales) was photographed in London filming scenes and bearing an uncanny resemblance to the late royal.

Watts was snapped wearing a suit jacket and a short, Di-like haircut to play what she's called an "iconic" role. "Princess Diana was loved across the world," the actress has said. "It is such an honor to be able to play [her]."

Still, we couldn't help but notice Watts's resemblance to another well-known Brit – Tina Brown, well-known journalist and the author of The Diana Chronicles.
