Olivia was seen wearing pink while filming. Her antics drew laughs from Marion Bailey as Queen Mother, Josh, Tobias and Helena.

Former butler Paul Burrell said this weekend that the fourth series is a precise dramatization of the royal family’s treatment of Princess Diana – who is appearing on the show for the first time in season 4.

Burrell, one of Diana’s closest confidants, said The Crown had shown “the truth in many ways”, portraying a lonely and isolated Diana as she moved into Buckingham Palace and got used to her new royal life.

The 62-year-old told ITV’s Lorraine, “I think it’s the best series yet. It is spectacular.

“This is just a glimpse behind the gates of Buckingham Palace, which maybe the palace doesn’t want you to see.” It is a fair and precise dramatization of what happened.

He praised Emma Corrin’s ‘stellar’ portrayal of Diana, adding, “I look at her in profile and think it’s her.”

“I think she has it exactly. His manners and his way of speaking. I can feel it again. I feel his personality being taken apart behind the scenes by these people who don’t care.

“They didn’t take care of her. They did not congratulate her. She only has negativity. She became a victim.

Emma was also praised for capturing Diana’s facial expressions after photos of her and Prince Charles’ engagement shoot from the fourth season of the Netflix hit were posted on Instagram.

In images shared last Tuesday, the 24-year-old actress captured the shy facial expressions of the late royal as she tied arms with her on-screen fiancé, 30.

The Prince of Wales proposed to the Norfolk native in February 1981, with the couple eventually marrying five months later, before ending their marriage in August 1996.

Watching the sleek pair every inch, woman Emma wore a short wig with a blue blazer and matching skirt, while Josh of the Durrells wore a pointy suit.

The duo were surrounded by photographers and the press to mark the moment Diana was introduced to the British public.

The caption accompanying the message read: “Charles and Diana’s engagement. A moment that changed everything. The crown season four. Sunday November 15th.

The highly anticipated season will portray Diana’s entry into the royal family, as well as her incompatibility with Charles due to their almost 13-year age difference.
