The Crown’s voice coach reveals how to get Diana’s voice right

The Crown’s voice coach, William Conacher, has revealed to The Independent how to nail Diana’s signature voice - just like Elizabeth Debicki in the hit Netflix series.

“She had this very minor-key way of talking, evoking sympathy”, he notes.

“It sounds such a simple thing but it really makes a difference.”
