Say hello to the new Princess Margaret.

 

Netflix has released their casting choice for the next version of Princess Margaret for the hit drama series The Crown, and their decision couldn't be more perfect: the one, the only, Helena Bonham Carter. 

 

Bonham Carter was officially announced on Thursday for the role alongside Jason Watkins, who will play Harold Wilson.

Im not sure which I'm more terrified about doing justice to the real Princess Margaret or following in the shoes of Vanessa Kirbys Princess Margaret.

"I'm not sure which I'm more terrified about doing justice to the real Princess Margaret or following in the shoes of Vanessa Kirbys Princess Margaret," the 51-year-old actress said of being cast.

 

Vanessa Kirby, who played Princess Margaret for the first two seasons, was nominated for a Bafta for her portrayal of the royal. 

 

 

"The only thing I can guarantee is that Ill be shorter [than Vanessa]," joked Bonham Carter. 

 

The Crown will return for season three in 2019.
