Emma Corrin ditches her red carpet glamour for To Kill A Mockingbird's opening night 2

She rose to fame through her performance as Princess Diana in The Crown.

But Emma Corrin was worlds away from her glamorous royal persona as she opted for a casual shirt jacket and a baseball cap for To Kill A Mockingbird’s opening night at London’s Gielgud Theatre on Thursday.

The actress, 26, opted for the low-key ‘shacket’ teamed with matching cream chino trousers as she joined a slew of stars for the premiere of the play, which has been adapted by Aaron Sorkin from Harper Lee’s iconic novel.

‘I know the people on social media and around the world who have been talking about it have helped me on my journey…

‘When I started posting about it it felt very scary and revealing and I wasn’t sure if it was the right thing to do but the feeling I’ve got from other people in the queer community has been wonderful…
