The Crown star Emma Corrin has admitted she would ‘run a mile’ if she was asked to join the royal family.

The actress – who plays Diana, Princess of Wales in the upcoming fourth series of the Netflix favourite – feels ‘sorry’ for the royals, who she says are in an ‘impossible situation’.

She told the Radio Times: ‘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.’

The 24-year-old star said that when she was growing up there was a ‘running joke’ at her school that her mother was Diana, after she had run away to find a normal life because she looked so similar to the princess.

‘So I grew up incredibly fond of this woman, as were most of the British public,’ she added.

‘My mum was very affected by the tragedy of someone who was so generous with their love being taken so suddenly and unfairly.’

The actress said Peter Morgan, who writes The Crown, is ‘unflinching about the darker sides of people’.

She said: ‘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.

‘I wouldn’t go so far as to say she was manipulative, but almost.’

The fourth series of The Crown – which is set in the late 1970s and follows Diana’s relationship with the Prince of Wales, played by Josh O’Connor – will launch on Netflix on Sunday, November 15.

The full interview is in Radio Times magazine, out now.
