Ever wonder why Wonder Woman’s identity is Diana Prince? Turns out Wonder Woman has more in common with Princess Diana than we thought.
Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot spilt the tea. Talking to Vanity Fair for a virtual award season chat, the Fast & Furious actress confirmed there more similarities between Diana Prince and Princess Diana than just their names.
Although the shero was not based on the late princess, Gal Gadot’s portrayal of Wonder Woman was directly inspired by Princess Diana.

“I remember watching a documentary about Princess Diana and there was a part where they said she was full of compassion and always cared for the people and that was like, ‘Ding, ding, ding,’ that should be the Wonder Woman we have,”
The Date Night actress asserted that she wanted her portrayal of Wonder Woman to be relatable and inspiring. That’s how she humanized a goddess superhero.
“I wanted to show her vulnerabilities and heart,” Gal Gadot explained
