Netflix's 'The Crown' Casts Helena Bonham Carter As Princess Margaret

'Tis been reported that Helena Bonham Carter - patron saint of quirky girls everywhere - is now in talks to take over the role of Princess Margaret (formerly portrayed by Vanessa Kirby) in Season 3 and 4. 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 previously played The Queen Mother - wife to George VI and mother to Elizabeth II and Margaret - in 2010's The King's Speech.

While Carter's reported casting has certainly excited fans, it looks like we'll still have to wait a little while longer to find out if she has indeed landed the royal role. So, the rumor that Helena Bonham Carter might join the cast is just one of the most thrilling ideas we've ever heard.

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!

Princess Margaret is Elizabeth's wilder younger sister.

Season 2 however, was her last appearance in the show, as show producers intend to change the cast of The Crown every two seasons to reflect their ages.

The embassy stressed, however, that the Turkish government has given no assurances to Washington, refuting the USA embassy's earlier claim.

However, Princess Margaret veers more to the side of the rebellious roles that Carter has occupied before, especially the wild, reckless version played in the early seasons by Kirby. Queen Elizabeth was played by Claire Foy. We're pretty devastated to be honest, both Kirby and her co-star Claire Foy - not to mention Matt Smith as Prince Phillip - have been excellent in the first two seasons.

The second season is set to debut on December 8th on Netflix.

Netflix announced in October that Olivia Colman will take the reins from Emmy victor Claire Foy to play Queen Elizabeth.

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