Emma Corrin has opened up about wearing Princess Diana’s wedding dress for the upcoming season of The Crown.

Fans of the hit Netflix show caught a quick glimpse of Emma as the late princess on her wedding day to Prince Charles in the trailer for the fourth season of the show – after it dropped at the end of last month.

“The Emanuels, who designed the original, gave us the patterns, and then it was made for me,” Emma explained to British Vogue.

“We were filming the scene when you first see her in the wedding dress — I think it was Lancaster House in London — and I had a team of about 10 people helping me put it on, because it’s massive.

“I walked out and everyone went completely silent. More than anything else I wear in the series, it’s so … It’s her.”

On landing the role of The Princess of Wales, the 24-year-old told the publication: “I didn’t tell anyone for a while.

“I love my mates, but I think it would have got out.”

“My friends from school did this incredible thing, where they made me a scrapbook filled with all of the screenshots from our group WhatsApp, where I have said, ‘Oh my God, guys, I’ve been invited to read.’

“Or a random conversation we’d had four years ago when I said, ‘Isn’t Diana amazing!’

“I feel I’ve got to know Diana like you would a friend,” she added, “I know that sounds really weird, but I get a great sense of companionship from her.

“I suppose, over time, you kind of start to patch together a sense of empathy and a sense of understanding. I love figuring people out.”

Season 4 is dropping on Netflix on November 15.
