Helena Bonham Carter to play Princess Margaret in 'The Crown'

Helena Bonham Carter to play Princess Margaret in 'The Crown'”

According to a new report from Entertainment Weekly, Helena Bonham Carter is near a deal that will enable her to play the older version of Princess Margaret on the Netflix drama series. The Sweeney Todd and Alice in Wonderland star will take over the role from Vanessa Kirby, who played Margaret in the first two seasons. She even has a vague connection to the role, having played Queen Elizabeth II's mother in 2010's The King's Speech. However, it has since been confirmed that, for The Crown's next two seasons, Olivia Colman (best known for her work in Broadchurch), will take over the role of Britain's longest-sitting monarch.

"The Crown" is looking to add another member to its royal family.

Netflix apparently hasn't given The Crown the green light to start filming another season, but that hasn't stopped its creators from planning it!

In seasons 1 and 2 - the latter of which premiered on Netflix in December - Princess Margaret is portrayed by Vanessa Kirby.

There is now no word on who will replace Matt Smith as Queen Elizabeth's husband Prince Phillip, but personally we can't wait to see these two tearing it up inside Kensington Palace as royal sisters.

Trump slams Federal Bureau of Investigation and Clinton for dossier claims
BuzzFeed News published the controversial dossier in January, which includes many salacious claims that have not been verified. The dossier was a collection of unverified claims about alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.

If you've watched Seasons 1 and 2 of Netflix's awesome series "The Crown", you know we are saying goodbye to most of the cast.

Now, if only they would tell us who's playing Prince Philip.

"In Season 3, without giving anything away-it's on the record, it's history-we'll see the breakup of this extraordinary marriage between Margaret and Snowdon", he said.

Because Margaret is the ultimate naughty little sister, the hungover, chain-smoking next-in-line, who drops further down the ranks as her goodie-goodie sister commands the Commonwealth and gets on with her duty-bound breeding.
