Emma Corrin, 24, said: “We’d been working on her body language and we put together a document that we sent to the script team and said, ‘Can you include some of this in the writing?’

“I felt that if we were trying to depict bulimia in an honest way, we had to actually show it – otherwise it’s a disservice to anyone who has been through that.

“I don’t think we should shy away from those conversations. Diana was very candid about her experience with bulimia and I so admire that.”

Emma also told Radio Times that her mum looked like the shy royal: “There was a running joke at my school that she was Diana, that she had run away and was living a normal life as my mum.”

Meanwhile Josh O’Connor, who plays Charles, said: “I was keen not to play a villain.


“But what I’m pleased about is that in the last series people felt an affection for Charles, and a sympathy.”
