Lily Collins hit Prince Charles with a telephone
Lily Collins once hit Prince Charles with a telephone. The 'To The Bone' actress met the heir to the British throne and his former wife, the late Princess Diana. when she was just a child but the meeting did not go well when she smacked Charles with a toy phone he gave to her. Speaking on Vanity Fair's In The Limelight podcast, she said: "I met the family but when I was barely walking. There are photos of me giving Princess Diana flowers and then trying to take them back from her. "Apparently I was told that Prince Charles gave me a phone to play with and I proceeded to try to smack him with it. My mom was like, 'Oh my God, we're gonna get kicked out!'" Lily, 28, met the royals through her famous father; musician Phil Collins. Lily is Phil's only child from his second marriage to American Jill Tavelman and in her recent memoir 'Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me', Lily said she forgave him for not "being the dad I expected". She wrote: "I forgive you for not always being there when I needed and for not being the dad I expected. "I forgive the mistakes you made. And although it may seem like it's too late, it's not. There's still so much time to move forward. "We all make choices and, although I don't excuse some of yours, at the end of the day we can't rewrite the past. "I'm learning how to accept your actions and how they made me feel. I accept the sadness and anger I felt toward the things you did or didn't do, did or didn't give me."
