The Duchess of Cornwall confronted the actress who plays her on the hit Netflix show The Crown – and joked that she could finish her speech for her.

Camilla met actress and filmmaker Emerald Fennell at the World Women’s Festival event at Clarence House today, held to mark International Women’s Day.

Two women who have never met each other today were photographed introducing each other and chatting during the reception.

And later in a speech, Camilla joked to guests that her “fictional self” Emerald could end her speech if she “falls off the perch”.

She said: “It’s reassuring to know that, if I can fall off my perch at any moment, my fictional ego will take over – so Emerald, prepare!”

Emerald played young Camilla Parker Bowles in the third and fourth seasons of The Crown.

In the fourth season, she is seen in a love triangle with Princess Diana, played by Emma Corrin, and Prince Charles, played by Josh O’Connor, which is said to have resulted in the Duchess of Cornwall being arrested online abuse.

Emerald said of their meeting today: “It was absolutely delightful. She is an impressive person, it was a pleasure to meet her today on International Women’s Day as she has done so much for so many charities especially women centered.

“I was very worried that I might get thrown into the tower but so far so good.”

“She’s been in the spotlight for a long time and always trumps it with grace and humour.”

When asked about her conversation with Camilla, Emerald remained tight-lipped and replied with a smile: “You know – I’ll be very private, because if I ever find out anything it’s a ‘couple’ Loose lips will sink the ship’.

In recent years, The Crown has been controversial for its historical accuracy.

However, Prince Harry confessed early last year that he had watched the show – and said it was more accurate than people thought.

A fifth season of The Crown will be released later this year, and the new episodes will focus on the royals during the 1990s – one of their most tumultuous periods in recent history.

The early 90s saw the breakdown of the marriages of Charles and Diana as well as Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.

There was also a devastating fire at Windsor Castle in 1992, which the Queen dubbed “annus horribilis”.

Later in the decade, Diana gave her famous BBC Panorama interview, where she spoke about Charles’ relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles before her death in 1997.

Season five of the show will see major changes to the cast of The Crown with the role of the Queen falling into the hands of BAFTA winner Imelda Staunton, who will take over from Olivia Colman.

Two Popes star Johnathan Pryce will play Prince Philip and is taking over from Tobias Menzies.

Meanwhile, Emerald is making way for actress Olivia Williams, who will play Camilla.
