Actress Elizabeth Debicki goes under the radar in a top saying 'the future is female'

Although she stands at a towering 6ft 3in – a good 3in taller than her Crown co-star – she went unrecognised by most passers-by during her 90-minute stroll

She is the latest beauty to be linked to Dominic West in a relationship doomed by extramarital liaisons.

But thankfully Elizabeth Debicki’s interactions with the infamously wayward actor are entirely professional, as she has been cast as Princess Diana in The Crown, opposite West’s Prince Charles.

The 30-year-old was pictured on a walk in London last week wearing a T-shirt bearing the slogan: ‘The future is female.’ 

And although she stands at a towering 6ft 3in – a good 3in taller than her Crown co-star – she went unrecognised by most passers-by during her 90-minute stroll.

‘She is really tall and amazing-looking but she has the ability to pass under the radar,’ said one onlooker. 

‘No one bothered her and she seemed totally engrossed in the phone conversation she was having during her walk. She looked like she just wanted to stretch her legs.’

Ms Debicki, who is best-known for her steamy scenes with Tom Hiddleston in the 2016 BBC thriller The Night Manager, will play Diana in the next two series of the Netflix drama, covering the bitter collapse of the Royal marriage. It will include a re-creation of Diana’s infamous 1995 Panorama interview in which the Princess said: ‘There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded.’

When she joined the cast of The Crown, Ms Debicki, said: ‘Princess Diana’s spirit, her words and her actions live in the hearts of so many. It is my true privilege and honour to be joining this masterful series.’

Mr West, 51, is currently on screen in the BBC drama The Pursuit Of Love alongside Lily James, 32, whom he was photographed kissing during a trip to Rome around the time of filming.

Afterwards, the actor and his 49-year-old wife Catherine FitzGerald made an awkward appearance outside their Wiltshire home to insist that all was well with their marriage.
