The Crown star Emma Corrin has changed their pronouns and revealed they are experimenting with breast-binding.

The 25-year-old actor – who played Princess Diana in the most recent series of the Netflix royal drama – hinted they are realigning their gender identity as they discussed embracing change and a new journey.

Corrin has changed the pronouns on the bio of their Instagram account to "she/they", implying they identify as both. The they pronoun is used by those who identify as non-binary.

It’s all a journey right. Lots of twists and turns and change and that’s ok! Embrace it."
