The upcoming biopic about the late Princess Diana, titled Spencer, has sparked curiosity and confusion among fans of the beloved royal. The film’s title suggests that it will focus on her maiden name rather than her iconic title as Princess of Wales. So, why is the movie called Spencer?

Firstly, it’s essential to understand the primary purpose of this film – to explore a specific moment in Diana’s life and not her entire royal journey. The director of Spencer, Pablo Larraín, has revealed that he wants to portray three critical days in 1991 when Diana decided to end her marriage with Prince Charles.

During these three days over Christmas weekend at Sandringham Estate, which is owned by Queen Elizabeth II (Charles’ mother), Diana reached a breaking point due to unhappiness in her marriage, isolation from other royals and personal turmoil surrounding mental health issues.

Now that we know what portion of Diana’s life this biopic focuses on let us turn our attention back to the reason for its title being Spencer.

Spencer refers directly to Lady Diana Frances Spencer (1961-1997). It was inherited through her father Johnnie Spencer who came from one of Britain’s oldest families with aristocratic roots going back centuries. Her family estate is Althorp House amongst lush landscapes seven miles northwest from Northamptonshire; where she grew up before joining Versailles finishing school in Paris.

While much has been written about Princess Di’s time within the British Royal Family – including numerous books , documentaries , films , and television shows – there hasn’t been a film specifically dedicated solely to exploring aspects of Ex-Lady Di’s troubled early years or focused on fleshing out lesser-known details associated with what led up towards how she ended up marrying into Buckingham Palace.

Therefore utilizing “Spencer” within its title make sense regarding how it offers an insight into Lady Dian as compared solely focusing mainly concerning Prince Harry during his formative years.

Furthermore, Spencer allowed Larraín to develop the theme of a family, which is central to this film’s narrative. Diana had a difficult upbringing that impacted her adult life, including struggles with bulimia and self-harm.

Re-entering that environment with Prince Charles at Sandringham Estate gave Diana cause for introspection into how that ‘family unit’ might be affecting their children. Furthermore, she likely reflected quite deeply on how her own dysfunctional experience within a similarly opulent upbringing may have set up similar negative standards in particular concerning social expectations against which all royals are measured.

The title ‘Spencer’ emphasizes the importance of Princess Diana’s background and personal history – an essential aspect of understanding her character beyond simply being a princess.

In conclusion then – given “Spencer” allows for exploration into lesser-known chapters about Lady Dian’a early lifetime while also serving as reference towards authoritatively highlighting those formative vital years before Royal-marriage (that were still integral towards shaping who she became) – it seems like the perfect name choice for an upcoming movie dedicated specifically towards such fierce curiosity surrounding very pivotal moments in her private story.
