Does the new cast of The Crown meet your expectations?
Season 3 of The Crown is now available on Netflix, and with the new series, we see a brand new cast occupying Buckingham Palace.
Olivia Colman takes over the role of Queen Elizabeth II from Claire Foy, who played her for the first two series and won an Emmy in the process.
Helana Bonham Carter plays Princess Margaret, and takes over the role from Vanessa Kirby, the new episodes will see the collapse of Margaret’s marriage to Antony Armstrong-Jones, Lord Snowdon, who is now played by Ben Daniels, taking over from Matthew Goode.
It also follows her affair with Roddy Llewellyn (played by Harry Treadaway), who was almost 20 years her junior.
The pair sparked a scandal when they were photographed in Mustique while Margaret was still married to her husband but went on to have an eight-year relationship.
Tobias Menzies plays the Duke of Edinburgh, which was previously played by Matt Smith and Josh O’Connor is portraying the Prince of Wales.
The third series of the period drama will cover 1964-1977, set against the backdrop of the miners’ strikes, the country’s bankruptcy and national security threats, as well as the tenure of Harold Wilson as prime minister, Prince Charles’s investiture as Prince of Wales and the Queen’s Silver Jubilee.
