Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

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."
