Helena Boham Carter

It feels like a lifetime has passed since season two of The Crown aired on Netflix. We’ve been longing for the show to return to our screens and it looks like we don’t have long to wait.

Netflix has graced us with a glimpse of the upcoming season and we have to admit we are rather excited.

Two photos of the new cast were released and we have to say they look incredible. Many fans can admit they were sad to say goodbye to the original cast. Claire Foy, Matt Smith, Vanessa Kirby and Matthew Goode were phenomenal in their roles, but it looks like we had nothing to worry about after all.

In one photo, Helena Bonham Carter, who will play Princess Margaret dances with her on-screen husband Anthony-Armstrong Jones, played by Ben Daniels. The lovebirds look happier than ever in the snap, but trouble is on the horizon for the couple this season.

One of the biggest storylines of season three will follow the breakdown of Margaret and Anthony’s marriage.

The second image sees Olivia Colman and Tobias Menzies in their roles as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. The resemblance between the pair and the royal couple is uncanny.

It has been claimed that series three will be set during the late 1960s and 1970s. The Duke of Windsor passed away in 1972, so we have a feeling his death will be a major storyline this season.

Season three will also focus on the life of Prince Charles, including his relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles.

The next season of the drama series is set to air early in 2019.


We've been eagerly consuming every bit of news about The Crown we can find until it finally airs in 2019.

One tidbit that we had been especially excited about was the possibility of Helena Bonham Carter joining the star-studded cast.

It was reported back in January that she had been tapped for the role, but now Netflix has officially confirmed that the kooky actress is playing Princess Margaret. She is taking over from Vanessa Kirby, who played the wild Princess in the last two series.

We think Helena be brilliant, but the Sweeney Todd actress has expressed her worries about the role, Variety reports.

“I’m not sure which I’m more terrified about — doing justice to the real Princess Margaret or following in the shoes of Vanessa Kirby’s Princess Margaret,” she confessed.

“The only thing I can guarantee is that I’ll be shorter [than Vanessa].” We can always rely on her for some good old-fashioned self-deprecation!

Helena also set to appear in the highly anticipated heist film Ocean's 8. We're ecstatic that she's featuring in so many thrilling upcoming projects!

As far as the rest of The Crown cast goes, Jason Watkins was recently announced as a new addition, too. The BAFTA award-winning actor will be playing Harold Wilson, who was Prime Minister of the UK from 1964 to 1970 and also from 1974 to 1976.

You may recognise Jason from his roles as William Herrick in the TV series Being Human or Gordon Shakespeare in the Nativity film series.

"Harold Wilson is a significant and fascinating character in our history," the 51-year-old said, "So looking forward to bringing him to life, through a decade that transformed us culturally and politically. And excited to be working so closely with Olivia; and the whole team."

The pair is joining an amazing cast, including Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II and Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip. 

So, now we just have to re-watch the first two series until 2019 rolls around!


Disney managed to succeed in turning its classic animation film, Sleeping Beauty into the current hit that is Maleficent. But Disney isn’t stopping there, as its just revealed that they are planning to turn family favourite Cinderella, into a live action film.

The film will be released in 2015 and will star Helena Boham Carter, Lily James and Cate Blanchett.

After this amazing teaser, we are already excited!
