Emma opened up about playing the late Princess

The fourth season will see Princes William and Harry make their first appearance in the series as small children. In set photos, a pregnant Princess Diana can be seen carrying little Prince William while accompanied by Prince Charles. 

It appears that the stars are recreating a Buckingham Palace Easter egg hunt from the Prince's childhood in 1984, ahead of his little brother Prince Harry's birth, as Charles can be seen holding an Easter egg basket for the toddler.
