The 29-year-old actor stars as Prince Charles within the Netflix dramatisation of the royal household, while Emma performs Charles’ spouse Diana, whom he married in 1981 and divorced in 1996, only one 12 months earlier than her 1997 loss of life.
And Josh has claimed business newcomer Emma, 24, is already beginning to really feel the pressures of fame, as he says she’s been hounded by paparazzi, simply as Princess Diana was within the 90s.
Speaking to ‘Entertainment Tonight’, Josh mentioned: ”It’s one thing we received actually used to. Poor previous Emma is so younger and it is one in all her first jobs.
”So, she’s usually getting caught by the cameras whereas loads of previous arms know easy methods to run away and conceal. There are loads of photographs of Emma wanting wonderful and she or he’s doing an unimaginable job taking part in Diana.”
