The starlet's androgynous ensemble also reminded us of some of Diana's favourite looks, and her royal rule-breaking love of wearing menswear.

Prince William and Harry's mother became synonymous with fashion risk-taking; a fan of boxy blazers, tuxedo suits and famously the first woman in the royal family to wear trousers to an evening event, Diana was the queen of androgynous style.

Meanwhile, Emma recently shed some light on stepping into Diana's (very fashionable) shoes for the Netflix show.

She told VOGUE: "We think of Diana as this style icon. Your mind immediately goes to the power suits, the bold colour combinations, the athleisure wear.

Princess Diana loved an androgynous look - just like Emma

"[It] was one of the incredible things about playing her over the course of 12 years: if you took different pictures of her throughout the series you could trace her sense of self and her own voice emerging purely through her clothing."
