Vanessa Kirby has portrayed the controversial character for the past two seasons. This includes Foy, who won an Emmy in the lead role, and was " truly sensational in the part, even more so in season 2 than season 1", according to /Film's Chris Evangelista in his review of the second season of The Crown.

British actress Olivia Colman (who you've probably seen in many TV shows and movies before) has already been confirmed to replace Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II and this morning, reports have started floating around the internet saying that Peter has found his new Princess Margaret! Margaret married Antony Armstrong-Jones, the Earl of Snowdon (Matthew Goode) and the season ended with her pregnant with one of their children.

Not that we'd anxiously awaiting that moment for two seasons or anything. We're speaking from experience.

Series creator Peter Morgan has always said that he meant to replace key cast members in later seasons, to better portray the main characters as they age.

The previous coach Jack Del Rio was sacked after the last game of the season, and Gruden is set to interview with them Monday. The Raiders have called a news conference for Tuesday, at which they are expected to name Gruden the team's next coach.

Helena Bonham Carter is reportedly a shoo-in to take over the role of Princess Margaret in the next two seasons of Netflix flagship drama The Crown. Presumably, Victoria Hamilton will return as the Queen Mother, as the show's cast is joined by Goode and Michael C. Hall.

Honestly, we reckon the move could go either way. Carter has played her fair share of eccentric, tragic souls and will occupy the part perfectly. Carter is especially a huge nab for Netflix, having played her fair share of royalty - either proper or rebellious - before.

This isn't the first time Bonham Carter has starred in a regal role - the Harry Potter actress also played Princess Margaret's mother, the original Queen Elizabeth (also known as the Queen Mother) in the Academy Award winning film, The King's Speech.
