James showed the photo of Lily as a toddler between her father and her mother Jill Tavelman appearing to hand Princess Diana a bouquet of flowers. 

When he asked her if she remembered what was going on when the photograph was taken, the Emily In Paris star replied: ‘I’m giving Diana flowers, but the second she went to take them I then tried to pull them back.’

The actress joked that it sucked all the air out of the room, but because she was wearing a cute dress who could punish her.

Lily also shared that it was not her only royal encounter.

‘I was also told that when I was younger, I was playing with some toys with Prince Charles and I proceeded to kind of throw something at him like throw a toy telephone at his head,’ she said.

James asked her how old she was at the time and she said ‘two-ish.’

‘Were you just hanging out with the Royal Family all the time?’ he asked.

Lily told him that her father, who is the drummer and singer in rock band Genesis, did a lot of things for the Prince’s Trust and she grew up in England. 

The actress said she just went along for the ride and she guessed she had a tendency to do ‘naughty things as a two-year-old’.   

Lily also told James she spent New Years in New York with her husband Charlie McDowell, her father Phil, along with other members of her family walking the streets of New York and also playing Trivial Pursuit.

She said that when they were walking around NYC they saw an Emily In Paris poster that had been ‘vilely defaced’. 

James showed the photo of Emily standing in front of the poster where her eyes and nose had been painted red.

‘I was given a whole new makeup job,’ the actress joked. ‘Why not embrace it.’

James asked her about shooting Emily In Paris and wanted to know about the Parisians’ reactions to the show. 

Lily said after season one she heard the French didn’t want to embrace the show but that when she started shooting season two that she saw that ‘it could not have been more opposite.’

She said because of all the COVID regulations and shutdown that she and her co-star Ashley Park, 30, felt as if they were the only other Americans in France. 

Lily said when they went out that they stuck out like a sore thumb and that all these people would come over and talk to them about the show and treated them like they were their characters.
