The Crown star Emma Corrin revealed she attended Prince William and Kate Middleton's Royal Wedding at 15 years old.

Emma confessed she was never much of a 'royal family person' until she got to go to the lavish wedding in 2011.

Kate and William got married on April 29 of that year at Westminster Abbey, with Emma deciding to attend with her pal Katherine.

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the 25-year-old explained: "I remember 10 years ago, I was 15, I was with my friend Katherine and we got very very swept up in the royal wedding fever I think probably because we were both very bored and very single.

"So we decided to go. We were so excited because my friend Katherine had this great inflatable daffodil.

"I remember that when we were watching the footage back to see if we could get a glimpse of ourselves, we couldn't see ourselves but we did see, in the middle of these crowds, this massive inflatable daffodil that she was holding up."

Emma joined the cast of the Netflix series as Princess Diana, a role which earned her a Golden Globe Award for her portrayal of the royal.

The actress worked with a dialect coach to get her portrayal perfect but, in the end, her mother's help was what helped her transform into Diana.

Emma continued: "She's a speech therapist … and was amazing and helped me with my auditions when I was prepping for them."

"She would give me tips on the voice. We would sit in this little cafe near where I lived at the time and help me do the voice and say, 'Oh well she sort of speaks with this sort of lilt at the end of her voice,' and it was very sweet."

At the beginning of March, when the star won the Golden Globe, Emma paid tribute to Princess Diana.

She had covered her mouth and giggled as her name was called before thanking "my prince charming" Josh O'Connor, who played the Prince of Wales in the series.

She said: "Thank you so much to Diana, you have taught me compassion and empathy beyond anything I could ever imagine."

After a stellar performance in the show, Emma has moved on to filming for an upcoming adaptation of Bethan Roberts' acclaimed novel My Policeman.

She is starring alongside singer Harry Styles – who plays a policeman she marries.
