Nicole Kidman has followed in the footsteps of her great friend Naomi Watts, channelling her acting skills into the portrayal of a tragic European princess.

In the first trailer for 'Grace of Monaco' above, Kidman would seem to have a more forgiving time of it on screen than Watts, with the montage highlighting her iconic power, rather than recreating the scenes made famous in real-life footage, attempted by the 'Diana' film.

And, while 'Diana' concentrates on the controversial and whirlwind final two years of Princess Diana's life, 'Grace of Monaco' concentrates on an earlier chapter in Princess Grace's history.
