The Crown's Princess Diana star Emma Corrin shows sassy side in explicit socks

The Crown actress Emma Corrin let her socks do the talking as she headed out in north London.

The 24-year-old – who starred as Princess Diana in the Netflix series – was spotted hitting the streets of the capital last week, before season four of the Royal drama dropped.

She opted for a black puffer jacket and baby pink dress, which she coupled with a pair of black Ugg slippers.

However, it was her socks that commanded the most attention, with the words ‘mother f**ker’ splashed across them.

Side note: We’re obsessed with them.

Emma has received rave reviews of her portrayal of Princess Diana in the show, which dropped on the streaming platform over the weekend.


The actress is only starring as the late Royal for one series, and will be replaced by Elizabeth Debicki for the final two seasons.

Chatting to GQ Hype about her brief stint, she explained: ‘It’s a shame. I’m sad about it, but I’ve moved on.’

She also lifted the lid on how she would react if she happened to bump into Diana’s sons, Princes Harry and William, on the showbiz circuit.

‘If I ever saw them at a party, I’d probably leave,’ she admitted, adding: ‘I’d be interested to know what they think.’



Emma joined a star-studded cast for the series, including Olivia Colman and Gillian Anderson, as well as Josh O’Connor – who played her on-screen husband, Prince Charles.

She worked incredibly hard off camera to get Diana’s movements and actions just right, while also putting her own stamp on the role.

Appearing on The One Show, the Pennyworth favourite said there was intense ‘pressure’ on her to completely nail it.

‘At first there was a huge amount of pressure, but I think it was as soon as I got the script I realised this is Peter’s [show writer Peter Morgan] world we’re creating and our versions of the characters,’ she added.

’That really helped to make me not feel as nervous or as much pressure as I did.’

‘Bit by bit, we just started to put together all these different aspects of her.’

The Crown is available to stream on Netflix now.
