Fans of The Crown have been patiently waiting for months for any scrap of information on what’s happening with The Crown season three.
This week, Netflix threw us a bone and released two new cast images from The Crown season three.
Season three of the British monarchy drama will centre around 1960s and 70s saucy storylines, including Princess Margaret’s racy affair with gardener Roddy Llewellyn, a grown up Prince Charles meeting now wife Camilla Parker Bowles for the first time, and the many scandalous escapades of the Earl of Snowdon.
In never-before-seen images published by Entertainment Weekly this week, we have our first look at the two royal couples at the centre of the series – Queen Elizabeth II and The Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip, and Princess Margaret and The Earl of Snowdon Antony Armstrong James.
In the first image, Olivia Colman and Tobias Menzies play Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, taking over from Claire Foy and Matt Smith.
The second shows Helena Bonham Carter and Ben Daniels reprising Vanessa Kirby and Matthew Goode’s roles as Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong Jones.
The resemblance between the fictional characters and the real life royals is pretty darn striking.
