Saeed will be playing the role of Dr. Hasnat, a British-Pakistani heart surgeon with whom Princess Diana had a secret two-year-long relationship with. Depending upon the nature of the relationship of the two characters, fans believe Saeed will be getting plenty of screen-time in this season, although the actor has been tight-lipped on any and all details regarding the show.
The rest of the ensemble cast includes Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II and Jonathan Pryce as her husband, Prince Philip. Meanwhile Dominic West will play Prince Charles, Elizabeth Debicki will play Princess Diana, Lesley Manville will take over the role of the Queen’s sister Princess Margaret, and Jonny Lee Miller will play Prime Minister John Major.
Keep your eyes peeled as the season premiers on Netflix this winter.
