Olivia was seen dressed in pink during filming. Her antics drew laughs from Marion Bailey as the Queen Mother, Josh, Tobias and Helena. 

Former butler Paul Burrell said at the weekend that the fourth series is an accurate dramatisation of the Royal Family’s treatment of Princess Diana – who appears on the show for the first time in season 4.

Burrell, one of Diana’ closest confidants, said The Crown showed ‘the truth in many ways’, portraying a lonely and isolated Diana as she moves into Buckingham Palace and gets used to her new life as a royal. 

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

‘This is just a peek behind the doors of Buckingham Palace, that perhaps the palace don’t want you to see. It’s a fair and accurate dramatisation of what happened.’ 

He praised Emma Corrin’s ‘stellar’ portrayal of Diana, adding: ‘I watch it from profile and I think it is her. 

‘I think she has got it exactly. Her mannerisms and the way she talks. I am feeling it again. I am feeling her personality being dismantled behind the scenes by these people who don’t really care. 

‘They didn’t take care of her. They didn’t give her praise. She only got negativity. She became a victim.’

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

In the images shared last Tuesday, the actress, 24, captured the late royal’s signature coy facial expressions as she linked arms with her on-screen fiancé, 30.

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

Looking every inch the elegant pair, thespian Emma was dressed in a cropped wig with a blue blazer and a matching skirt, while The Durrells’ Josh sported a sharp suit.

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

The post’s accompanying caption read: ‘The engagement of Charles and Diana. A moment that changed everything. The Crown Season Four. Sunday 15th November.’

The much-anticipated season will portray Diana’s entrance in the Royal Family, as well as her incompatibility with Charles due to their near 13-year age difference.
