The Crown: Helena Bonham Carter near deal to play Princess Margaret

39;The Crown' May Have Found Its New Princess Margaret For Season 3

As Netflix's The Crown heads into a time jump for seasons three and four, the critically acclaimed series is swapping out its main cast.

"You can't ask someone to act middle-aged", Morgan told the outlet.

According the the Evening Standard, Helena was rumoured to be eyeing up the role of Queen Liz herself but it seems she was far more suited to play the more risqué Windsor sister.

You all will be pleased to know that Variety has reported that Helena Bonham Carter is set to play the most controversial royal in The Crown's third series!

Bonham Carter has had plenty of experience playing British royals previously. Someone has to bring their own fatigue to it. The Oscar-nominated actress will take over the role from Vanessa Kirby, who played a younger iteration of Queen Elizabeth II's sister in Seasons 1 and 2. The feelings we all have as 50-year-olds are different than the feelings we all have as 30-year-olds. Margaret married Antony Armstrong-Jones, the Earl of Snowdon (Matthew Goode) and the season ended with her pregnant with one of their children.

Along with Foy, season one starred Matt Smith, Victoria Hamilton, Vanessa Kirby, John Lithgow, Nicholas Rowe, Pip Torrens, Jeremy Northam, Ben Miles, and Billy Jenkins. She's going to make Princess Margaret a legend. The actress has also embodied a member of this particular royal family before, for the Academy Award-winning 2010 film The King's Speech, in which she played another Elizabeth-Queen Mother of Elizabeth and Margaret.

"What's so attractive about Claire is her youth", he told Variety ahead of the season one premiere.

It will also introduce audiences to Camilla Shand, who met Prince Charles at polo match in 1971; the couple dated until Charles left for a naval posting in 1973.
