The Crown's Emma Corrin Decrees She's a 'Queer Bride'

Emma Corrin

Kristen Stewart may not be the only queer actress to play Princess Diana.

Emma Corrin, who portrays the late mother of Prince Harry and Prince William on the last season of The Crown, identified as a "queer bride" in an image caption posted Wednesday to Instagram.

The 25-year-old posted a photograph of herself in bridal attire. It is part of a photo shoot from Esther Theaker featured in the new issue of Pop, a British magazine. The full caption read, "ur fave queer bride."

The wedding gown, streaked with a dash of pink, may reference her character's storyline in the fourth season of the Netflix drama, which follows different generations of the British royal family throughout the 20th century.

Corrin portrays Diana in her teens and 20s as she's navigating her marriage to Prince Charles while adapting to fame and stress from her in-laws. She won a Golden Globe for the role this year alongside her bisexual costar, Gillian Anderson, who portrays Margaret Thatcher.

While Corrin has not provided any additional information about her identity as of the time of this article's posting, LGBTQ+ fans filled her Instagram comments with celebratory reactions. "PERIOD," wrote Evan Ross Katz. "This!" stated King Princess.

Corrin also appeared on the cover of Pop's Spring/Summer 2021 issue in a more androgynous look, sporting a Miu Miu track jacket and white sneakers.
