Emma Corrin has floored fans with her uncanny similarities to Princess Diana while she was spotted filming scenes for season 4 of The Crown. The actress was recently seen on the set of the Netflix drama alongside her onscreen husband Josh O’Connor, who plays Prince Charles.
While filming new scenes in Malaga, Spain, the 23-year-old looked the spitting image of the late Princess Diana. She was spotted wearing a pink polka dot dress paired with a statement fascinator — nearly identical to the fashionable look the late royal wore during her 1983 tour of Australia with Charles. The costume even had the same belted waist and ruched neckline as Diana’s ensemble.

Emma looked strikingly similar to the Prince Harry and William’s mum as she sported a white button-down dress, white flats, a matching white purse and the same blonde bob as Diana. The star’s previous credits include roles on Grantchester and Misbehaviour alongside Keeley Hawes and Keira Knightley. Emma is starring alongside her onscreen husband Josh O’Connor.

To explore her through Peter Morgan’s writing is the most exceptional opportunity and I will strive to do her justice.’ The Crown season four stars Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II, taking over the role from Claire Foy. Tobias Menzes will take over Matt Smith’s role of Prince Phillip, while Helena Bonham Carter is the new Princess Margaret, replacing Vanessa Kirby. The Crown season three drops on Netflix on 17 November.
