Earlier this month, London’s Evening Standard reported that the British actress was “all but confirmed” to take over the role of Princess Margaret from Kirby in the Netflix drama. Now, Kirby has shared a picture on Instagram of her with Bonham Carter with the caption: “Honoured. @thecrownnetflix”.
Check it out below.
Surely this can only mean one thing: that Bonham Carter will indeed be joining Olivia Colman – who has already been confirmed as Claire Foy’s replacement in the role of Queen Elizabeth II – in the third series of the royal drama as it moves into the 1970s.
We are still none the wiser as to who will be taking over the role of Prince Philip, though Radio Times viewers are rather keen to see former Doctor Who star David Tennant try his hand as the Duke of Edinburgh.
The Crown series 2 is streaming on Netflix now.
