Lily Collins humorously once tried to grab a bouquet of flowers from Princess Diana as a toddler, she disclosed on Tuesday’s episode of
“Here you are with your dad Phil Collins, this is you here being handed some flowers from Princess Diana. Do you have any recollection of this moment in time?”
Cordon queried Lily, seen as a toddler in the photo with both her parents and the late royal.
“I’ve been told this is what happened,” the “Emily In Paris”
actress, now 32, started.
“That’s my mom and my dad and I and it’s at a Prince’s Trust event and I’m giving Diana flowers, but the second that she went to take them, I then tried to pull them back.”
Lily amusingly added,
“So as you can imagine, all the air was sucked out of the room.”
Luckily for Lily, her 2-year-old self was too cute for anyone to literally be upset.
“I was wearing a cute dress, so who’s going to really punish me there,”
And it turns out Collins’ controversial relationship with the royals didn’t stop there: She as well shared that when she was younger she threw an object at Diana’s ex-husband Prince Charles.
“I was playing with some toys with Prince Charles and I proceeded to kind of like throw something at him, like throw a toy telephone at his head, which, again, all the air was sucked out of the room,”
Lily said, adding that this as well happen when she was in her dreadful twos.
She elucidated that she had been around the royal family frequently because her musician father was included in their humanitarian ventures.
“My dad did a lot of stuff with the Prince’s Trust so and I grew up in England, I’m British,”
she said, adding,
“I just went along for the ride and I guess I had a tendency to do naughty things as a 2-year-old.”
