Why Fans Think Emma Corrin And Harry Styles Are Dating

The highly-anticipated fourth season of royal drama The Crown is taking Netflix by storm, and all eyes are on Emma Corrin's performance as Princess Diana. The relative newcomer, who has just a handful of previous roles to her name, appears alongside heavy hitters like Olivia Colman, as Queen Elizabeth, Tobias Menzies, as Prince Philip, and Helena Bonham Carter, as Princess Margaret, but she's stealing virtually every scene regardless. Harry Styles, meanwhile, is solidifying his position as the Internet's favorite boyfriend thanks to a drool-worthy, gender-bending Vogue cover and accompanying interview. 

The stylish Brits are now being romantically linked, with fans on Twitter pairing them up predominantly based on the fact that they follow each other on Instagram and are both good-looking. They reportedly share a stylist, but is there anything romantic brewing between The Crown star Emma Corrin and pop icon Harry Styles, or is it purely just a friendship?

Emma Corrin sought out Harry Styles for advice

A source close to Emma Corrin told The Sun that the duo originally met at one of Styles' gigs last year after the actress reportedly admired him from afar for a while (just like the rest of us, then). They've been buds ever since, run in the same circles, and share many mutual friends as well as the aforementioned all-important stylist. Corrin even takes advice from Styles on how to navigate fame, particularly as her role as Princess Diana is guaranteed to launch her career in a major way. "They're both private people so no one seems to realize they are actually mates," the insider advised.

However, there's nothing more to their relationship. As the source confirmed, "There's nothing romantic between Harry and Emma but they became friends because they know loads of the same people." Harry Styles split from model Camille Rowe back in 2018, with the breakdown of their relationship inspiring his barnstorming album. Corrin, meanwhile, recently told The Telegraph she has no interest in finding a relationship right now because she's focusing on herself for the time being.
