The Fight Club actress will replace Vanessa Kirby in the role
.Just days after releasing glimpses of Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II, Netflix's The Crown have dropped a photo of new cast member Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret.
The actress, who was previously nominated for an Oscar for playing Queen Elizabeth in The King's Speech, will step into the role previously filled by Vanessa Kirby.
The reason for the new cast is that the third series of the Netflix series will time jump from the early 60s to the late 70s.
Joining her and Colman as older incarnations of the show's characters is Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip.
Claire Foy, Vanessa Kirby and Matt Smith, who played Elizabeth, Margaret and Phillip in the first two seasons just were nominated for Emmy's for their work on the series.
See the photo of Carter as Margaret below.
