The film focuses in particular on the final two years of the Princess of Wales’ life and how, through volunteering, social struggles and humanitarian campaigns , she discovered the meaning of happiness and consolidated her reputation that made her loved by the British people and from around the world. Naomi Watts in the role of Lady Di, came to Trieste where some scenes were filmed. The Parisian night of August 31, 1997 was recreated here: Piazza Unità d’Italia became the Place Vendôme and the historic “Caffè degli Specchi” (“Cafe of Mirrors”) was transformed into the Ritz Hotel in Paris, from which the beloved princess ran with her lover, chased by photographers. The scene in an auction house was also filmed in Trieste, being set up inside the Starhotel Savoia Excelsior.
