Emma Corrin and Josh O’Connor transformed into Princess Diana and Prince Charles on Thursday as they continued to film scenes for series four of The Crown in Spain. 

The pair looked the spitting image of the royals as they recreated the married couple’s visit to Sydney Harbour Bridge during the 1983 tour of Australia. 

Emma, 23, who is set to make her debut as the late Princess of Wales, wore a red polka dot dress and matching mesh veil bow hat as she sat next to Josh, 29, in the replica of the iconic Rolls Royce Phantom V.

With her blonde hair perfectly coiffed and swept over to the side, the Pennyworth actress emulated Diana’s shy body language down to a tee, as she coyly smiled at Josh during filming.  

Emma was in her element as she traveled across the Spanish set in the Rolls Royce Phantom V replica, which was the vehicle bought by the Australian government in 1967 for royal visits. 

Josh, meanwhile, sported Charles’ signature combed over hairstyle  and looked dapper in a dark suit, complete with a navy tie. 

At one point, the couple appeared to be having some tense words with Josh smoothing down his hair while Emma looked at him intently.

Earlier this week rising star Emma donned a pink polka dot dress, which was almost a carbon copy of the one Diana wore at the time while visiting the Freemantle Hospital, near Perth. 

The designers of the dress paid heavy attention to detail, as the garment featured a cinched waist and twisted detailing around the high neckline, similar to Diana’s.

At the time of the trip Diana would have been just 22 and it was her first tour with her eldest son William, who would have been nine months old at the time.    

The duo have also been pictured filming scenes which appeared to be from Prince Charles and Diana’s visit to the Sydney Opera House.

Screen star Emma was finally unveiled as the actress portraying the much-loved princess, after much speculation about who might be taking on the part.  

The TV and film star kicked off filming in the European country alongside Prince Charles actor Josh in late September, just over a month ahead of the show’s hotly-anticipated series three premiere.

The scenes shot in Spain will mirror the Prince and Princess of Wales, along with William, when they spent 41 days travelling to Alice Springs, Ayers Rock and Bondi Beach. 

Prince Charles actor Josh, 29, has been working on the Netflix series already, as his character appears in season three, which drops on the streaming site next month.   

Josh shot Charles’ investiture scene at Caernarfon Castle in November last year, alongside his on-screen parents Olivia Colman (Queen Elizabeth II) and Tobias Menzies (Duke of Edinburgh). 

Shortly after it was announced that she would be playing Diana, Emma took to social media, looking slightly overwhelmed with the media attention she has received since her casting was announced earlier this year.

Referencing the spotlight she now finds herself under, Emma shared a snap of her bewildered expression while she stood above various tabloids, opened to the generally positive news of her casting as the tragic Princess. 

Captioning the shot, Emma wrote: ‘What a week! Thank you for the love!’ 

The Crown Season 3 launches globally on Sunday, November 17
