Style icon Emma actually revealed her brother told her she was a perfect fit for the role of Princess Diana two years before she was cast in the Netflix hit.
She reflected on her sibling’s intuition during an interview with Variety in their iHeart podcast The Big Ticket on Wednesday.
Explaining how her brother shared his support for her taking the part in 2017, she said: ‘I remember being on holiday with my family maybe when the second season of The Crown had come out and I remember them joking about who was going to play Princess Diana.
Foresight: Emma’s brother told her she’d work in the role after the release of the show’s second season in 2017, but she ‘was at university at that time and I was like, “In my wildest dreams”‘
‘One of my brothers was like, “You should play Princess Diana.” I was at university at that time and I was like, “In my wildest dreams.”
‘It’s very strange to think back on those kind of moments now,’ she admitted

Emmy-winning casting director Robert Sterne revealed recently to Elle that the tense lunch between Princess Diana and Emerald Fennell’s Camilla was used as an audition scene for the latter role, with Emma only serving as a stand-in reader as Diana.
Sterne explained: ‘I usually read in all these meetings, but we decided because it was this major scene that we would get somebody to come in [for Diana]. We asked Emma to come in, not thinking about casting Diana at this point.
‘But as she was reading with these Camillas, all the directors and the showrunner were looking more at her and not at the people playing Camilla—who will remain nameless, of course.
‘When we got to thinking about Diana a year later, there she was in my notes.’
