Is Jeanna de Waal dating anyone?

The actress is quite active on her Instagram page promoting Diana: The Musical and her passion project Broadway Weekends. Unfortunately for those curious about her love life (including us!), there are no recent posts on her page about a possible significant other. It is of course, completely understandable for the talented musical theater actress to focus on her excitement over originating the lead role in Diana: The Musical.

In an interesting turn of events, Jeanna did run into a real-life prince in the past once while working as a caterer in college. Speaking to Vogue, Jeanna recalled how she was personally tasked with, "Keeping Prince Harry's champagne glass topped up," at an event. Of course Prince Harry is happily married to Meghan Markle now, but it'd be interesting to know if he thought Jeanna's performance of his mother in Princess Diana: The Musical was spot-on or not.

Fans who want to catch the show live on Broadway can purchase tickets through Nov. 20, 2022 via The Diana Musical's official website. It's not clear at this time if Diana: The Musical will only be available to stream up until the official Broadway previews begin. It's extremely rare for brand-new musicals to be available to stream right way, so catching Diana: The Musical on Netflix definitely seems like a must-watch for fans of the British royals and Princess Diana.

The original cast recording for Diana: The Musical has also already been released. Jeanna spoke to Access Hollywood about how she felt taking on the role of Princess Diana.

"It's daunting and obviously an actor's dream to take on such a such a wonderful story and prolific figure in history ... It's truly a dream come true to play this role."

Diana: The Musical is available to stream on Netflix now.
