p> Lily Collins has an unforgettable memory with Princess Diana. During her appearance on "The Late Late Show With James Corden", the "Emily in Paris" actress recalled her experience meeting the late British royal when she was young.
"Here you are with your dad Phil Collins, this is you here being handed some flowers from Princess Diana," host James Corden said while showing a picture of Lily and both her parents and the princess. "Do you have any recollection of this moment in time?"
To that question, the 32-year-old actress said, "I've been told this is what happened. That's my mom and my dad and I and it's at a Prince's Trust event." She revealed that she was tasked to give "Diana flowers, but the second that she went to take them, I then tried to pull them back."
"So as you can imagine, all the air was sucked out of the room," Lily shared. Unfortunately for Lily, who was only 2 years old at the time, she was too cute to be punished. "I was wearing a cute dress, so who's going to really punish me there," she quipped.
That wasn't the only thing that Lily did to the royals that could get her in trouble. The British star 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 recalled. The "To the Bone" actress also claimed that it happened when she was 2.
As to why Lily was around the royals quite often, she explained that it was because her musician father was involved in their charitable endeavors. "My dad did a lot of stuff with the Prince's Trust so and I grew up in England, I'm British," she said, "I just went along for the ride and I guess I had a tendency to do naughty things as a 2-year-old."
