Welwyn Garden City's Brocket Hall is set to make an appearance in the new season of The Crown.

The hit Netflix series returns for season six later this month, focusing on the final days of Princess Diana's life, with part of the filming taking place at the country house.

Brocket Hall reprised its role as Kensington Palace, with both buildings having a striking likeness thanks to their distinctive red bricks.

The 18th century home has featured in previous seasons of The Crown, having been used to represent the home of Prince Charles, Princess Diana and Princess Margaret.

Brocket Hall has a long and storied history, including housing two Prime Ministers, Lord Melbourne and Lord Palmerston, but it has also been used in TV and film before, most notably for The Queen and the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, starring Colin Firth.

Other scenes for previous seasons of The Crown have been filmed nearby, with production based at Elstree Studios, and Knebworth House doubling for the inside of Balmoral.

Season six will see Imelda Staunton return as Queen Elizabeth II, Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana, and Dominic West as Prince Charles.
