SHE might have gone on to call Buckingham Palace home, but Princess Diana had far more modest digs when she first met Prince Charles.
A new interview with Emma Corrin, the actress set to play Diana in Netflix's The Crown, reveals the late Princess of Wales once lived in a flat share in Earls Court, reports The Times.
Corrin spoke to Patrick Jephson, who served as Diana’s private secretary from 1988 to 1996.
On speaking to the former royal aide, she said: "I got a sense of her joy from him,” Corrin says. “He said she was so naturally happy.
"When she joined the royal family, she had come from living with flatmates in Earls Court and she was a very normal girl.
"Patrick said she was still full of that girlish silliness, very down to earth."
The upcoming series of the Crown, which has a rumoured £100 million budget, will see a young Diana as a teenager, following her to London, where she worked as a nursery school assistant.
The fourth series of the Netflix drama will also feature explicit scenes portraying Diana’s battle with bulimia in the Eighties.
In episodes dealing with Diana’s crumbling marriage to Prince Charles, actress Emma Corrin, 24, will be seen gorging on food before vomiting into a toilet.
The dramatization is bound to ruffle a few feathers at the Palace and is unlikely to sit well with Prince William, after brother Harry and his wife Meghan signed a £112million deal with the streaming giant.
The engagement and early marriage of Charles and Diana will be the main focus of the drama's fourth series when it returns in November.
