The Crown’s Emma Corrin ‘strikes up friendship with Harry Styles as she expects her life to change dramatically when she plays Princess Diana’

The Crown star Emma Corrin has reportedly struck up a friendship with Harry Styles as she expects her ‘life to change dramatically’ when series four airs. 

The actress, 24, who will play Princess Diana in the forthcoming season, is believed to have met the Watermelon Sugar hitmaker, 26, at one of his gigs last year. 

But while there is reportedly ‘nothing romantic’ between the pair, Emma and Harry ‘know loads of the same people’.

Emma is also said to share the ‘same stylist’ as the Adore You singer and the pair are similar in the way that they are ‘both private people’.  

A source told The Sun: ‘She is expecting her life to change dramatically when The Crown airs, because suddenly everyone will be interested in who she is, so it’s nice to have pals like Harry who know how to deal with fame.’    

Harry’s representative declined to comment. MailOnline has contacted Emma’s representative for comment.  

The long-awaited fourth series of The Crown will document Diana’s meeting and eventual marriage to Charles, along with the births and early years of the two Princes.

Diana married Charles in 1981, and the couple welcomed sons William in 1982 and Harry in 1984. After separating in 1991, the couple divorced in 1997.

Emma’s casting was announced in April 2019, with The Crown’s creator Peter Morgan calling her ‘a brilliant talent who immediately captivated us when she came in for the part of Diana Spencer.’

‘As well as having the innocence and beauty of a young Diana, she also has, in abundance, the range and complexity to portray an extraordinary woman who went from anonymous teenager to becoming the most iconic woman of her generation.’

The next series will be released later this year, but it was recently revealed that the show will conclude after its fifth season, with Imelda Staunton taking the throne as its final Queen Elizabeth II.

Show creator Peter Morgan confirmed the Netflix drama – currently airing its third season with Olivia Colman in the regal role – would not include a sixth season while revealing Imelda, 64, will take the role ‘into the 21st century’.

This means that current Royal scandals including the allegations made against Prince Andrew as well as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s ‘Megxit’ drama won’t be featured on the Netflix hit.

It comes after Harry has taken a break following the success of his second solo album Fine Line and is set to go on tour next year if Covid-19 restrictions are eased.
