Collins claimed that “all the air was sucked out of the room” after the incident, but joked that she was not punished because she was wearing “a pretty dress”.

The actress, who is the child of Genesis drummer Phil Collins and Jill Tavelman, shared another incident where she nearly got in trouble with the royal family.

“I was also told that when I was younger I used to play with toys with Prince Charles and I started throwing things at him, like throwing a toy phone at his head,” she recalls . “Again, all the air was sucked out of the room.”

The comedian asked how old she was when it happened, and she said two. Collins added that she hangs out with the Royal Family so often because of her father’s work with the Prince’s Trust.

“I just went for a walk, and I guess I tended to do naughty things when I was two,” she joked.
