The Crown’s Emma Corrin has changed their pronouns to she/they and opened up about their gender identity.

The Golden Globe winner is best known for their portrayal of Princess Diana in the fourth season of the popular Netflix show The Crown.

On Monday, Corrin took to Instagram where they posted a series of black and white images in which they are wearing their first chest binder.

The caption said: “Sometime before I bought my first binder, messing around with @sirdavidsimon, we used boxing wrap, thanks for capturing this with me, very intimate, very new, very cool. It’s all a journey right.

“Lots of twists and turns and change and that’s ok! Embrace it.”

Also in the post, the 25-year-old said that they get their chest binders from the LGBTQI+ owned brand gc2b.

Chest binding is when a person compacts their breasts using some form of material in order to give the impression that they have a flat chest.

Support came pouring in from fans.

One Instagrammer said: “I love you so much”

Another said: “Thank you for sharing your journey with us, love you<3

While a third said: “Amazing! I just bought my first binder. Journey on.”

Corrin revealed in April that they are queer and has made references to having girlfriends in interviews.

They were seen wearing a rainbow jumper during Pride Month as well as posting a picture from a bridal-themed photoshoot on Instagram with the caption: “ur fave queer bride”.

Fans rushed to the comment section to express their adoration.

One follower said: “You’re SO GORGEOUS!

While another said: “Always knew but yaaaaaaaay welcome to the community finally!”

As well as a Golden Globe, Corrin also scooped up a Critics’ Choice Award for their stunning depiction of the late Princess of Wales.

They will star in the upcoming queer drama My Policeman with Harry Styles.

The drama, which is set in the 1950s, will see Corrin taking on the role of a school teacher called Marion who falls in love with Tom, played by Styles.

We are so proud of you Emma!
