Burghley House in Stamford to become Windsor Castle in fourth series of Netflix drama The Crown starring Princess Diana actress Emma Corrin




Burghley House has become the setting for one of the nation's favourite TV series.

The stately home in Stamford has been the backdrop to a number of films and TV programmes in the past and it is soon to appear on our screens again in the fourth series of The Crown.

The 16th century country house was used to play the interior of Windsor Castle in the Netflix-original drama which chronicles the life of Queen Elizabeth II from the 1940s to modern times.

The Heaven Room features in a scene which shows Lady Diana Spencer, played by Emma Corrin, choosing her engagement ring. Josh O’Connor also stars in the scene as Prince Charles.

Philip Gompertz, house manager at Burghley House, was 'thrilled' after the stately home was chosen to be a location in the new series of The Crown.

He said: "The sumptuous décor of the State Rooms at Burghley are ideally suited to play the interiors of Windsor Castle and everyone at Burghley enjoyed working with the production crew.

"We look forward to continuing to work with the production team as the series unfolds."

Burghley House was a filming location in the third series of The Crown.

The fourth series of The Crown is available to stream on Netflix from Sunday (November 15).
