Lily Collins wasn’t your average child.
The actress, who has been busy promoting season 2 of “Emily in Paris”, chatted to James Corden on Tuesday’s “Late Late Show” and was asked about a photo showing her handing Princess Diana a bouquet of flowers as a toddler.

Collins added that she was wearing a cute dress so nobody could punish her.

Collins then revealed how Parisians reacted to seeing her in the city of love while filming her show:
