The British are so POLITE! LOLz!!
But the actress turned down the role TWICE before saying yes, not because she didn’t think she could do it — come on, we’re talking about an Oscar nominee here, y’all! — but because she worried what Diana’s sons, Princes Harry and William, might think!
"The biggest reason that made me pause was how the princes were going to be feel about this. There was actually quite an eerie moment in London when I did see Prince William in a restaurant, and I got very nervous, because if I caught his eye I didn’t want to interpret a look and think he had a negative feeling about this idea, so I made sure not to look…. I do care deeply about how the princes feel, of course. I am a mum of two boys. But it was a story that was bound to be told at some point, and it’s possibly fresher than people expected.”
Seems very Diana of her to consider how her actions affect others!
That's method acting for you!
