She spoke to the Radio Times about her new role on The Crown and her thoughts on the Royal Family.
“I’d run a mile if anyone in the Royal Family asked me to marry them!
“I’m indifferent to the royal family really, but I do feel sorry for them. We know what happened to Diana. It’s an impossible situation.”
Perhaps the 24-year-old was destined to play the popular Princess, as she recalled a running joke at her school that her mother was Diana.

She commented on her admiration for the former Princess of Wales, adding: “So I grew up incredibly fond of this woman, as were most of the British public.
“My mum was very affected by the tragedy of someone who was so generous with their love being taken so suddenly and unfairly.”
She added: “Diana had been raised in a very aristocratic family and she knew the rules of the game, she knew exactly what she was doing at Balmoral when she was flirting with Philip…
“She knew she was there to impress. She had this shyness to her that I think was authentic, but she was also naturally charming and she knew it.”
Emma then boldly claimed: “I wouldn’t go so far as to say she was manipulative, but almost.”

As the 1970s are drawing to a close, Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) and her family find themselves preoccupied with safeguarding the line of succession by securing an appropriate bride for Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor), who is still unmarried at 30.
As the nation begins to feel the impact of divisive policies introduced by Britain’s first female Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson), tensions arise between her and the Queen which only grow worse as Thatcher leads the country into the Falklands War, generating conflict within the Commonwealth.
While Charles’ romance with a young Lady Diana Spencer (Emma Corrin) provides a much-needed fairy tale to unite the British people, behind closed doors, the Royal Family is becoming increasingly divided.
Series four of The Crown will be released on Netflix on Sunday November 15
