After playing Meryl Streep’s cruel first assistant in The Devil Wears Prada, Emily Blunt is clearly moving up in the world.

In The Young Victoria, the 26-year-old actress plays the 17-year-old royal just as she is assuming the throne of Queen of England in the mid-1800’s and becoming romantically entangled with her cousin Prince Albert, played by Rupert Friend.

In real life, Blunt is engaged to The Office‘s John Krasinski, sporting a ring truly fit for a queen. – Oliver Jones
