Vanessa Kirby has been so glorious as Princess Margaret in seasons one and two that it's hard to imagine anyone else living up to her performance - but hey, it's HBC.

The second season, which premiered December 8 on the streaming service, ended with Margaret marrying Matthew Goode's Earl of Snowdon and pregnant with their first child.

However, the show will be making a time jump, so Netflix is recasting for storylines about the later years of the royal family's lives. "Someone has to bring their own fatigue to it", Morgan told Variety prior to the series' premiere in 2016.

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. "The feelings we all have as 50-year-olds are different than the feelings we all have as 30-year-olds", Morgan explained.

It's being reported that Netflix is close to a deal with Carter to join the third season, which will already be switching leads as Claire Foy gives way to Olivia Colman playing the older Queen Elizabeth II.

Funnily enough, Carter played The Queen Mother in 2010's The King's Speech, so she has some familiarity with roles of royalty.

"We have just the clothes on our backs", she told the website. "I am devastated, just devastated", Johnson said on Friday. She alleges that at the age of 28 Moore groped her and made comments about her young daughters' physical appearance.

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

"You'll be like, 'Who are they?' We're the warm-up act", she said on The Tonight Show.

One of the dreamiest side effects of The Crown is how it's introduced royal neophytes to the force of nature that was Princess Margaret.

Princess Margaret is Elizabeth's wilder younger sister.

Bonham Carter has plenty of interesting material to work with for Season 3, which will likely take place from the end of the 1960s to the end of the '70s.
