Here’s How Princess Diana Inspired Gal Gadot’s Portrayal of Wonder Woman 

Gal Gadot has recently revealed at the virtual “Vanity Fair Cocktail Hour Live!” event that her warrior-princess character Diana Prince a.k.a. Wonder Woman was apparently modeled after the real-life Princess Diana. The Princess of Wales was known as a loving mother, humanitarian, and veritable style icon. She was the first wife of Prince Charles–the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II and the heir apparent to the British throne–and the mother of Prince William and Prince Harry.

That should be the Wonder Woman that we have,” she recalled. “I wanted to show her vulnerabilities and heart.”
