Crown: Bonham Carter to Play Princess Margaret in Netflix The Crown

Helena Bonham Carter will play the Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret, in Season 3 of Netflix’s The Crown.

Princess Margaret, Elizabeth’s only sibling and at one point second in line to the throne, but is close to doing so.

Olivia Colman will replace Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II in Seasons 3 and 4 of the show, a role that Bonham Carter had herself been linked to. Vanessa Kirby (“Everest”) played Margaret, who is considered one of the more controversial Royals, during the past two seasons of the drama.

Series creator Peter Morgan intends to replace key cast members in later seasons of the Left Bank-produced series to better portray the main characters as they age.

Seasons 3 and 4 have not been officially ordered, but early production is said to be underway.

Bonham Carter will be seen next in “Ocean’s 8.”
