    Helena Bonham Carter Looks Spot-On In Her First Photo In "The Crown"

    Helena Bonham Carter will be depicting Princess Margaret in the third season of The Crown, replacing Vanessa Kirby. A picture of Olivia Colman as the Queen was released on Monday.

    Earlier this week, the first photo of Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II in the upcoming new series, The Crown, was released.


    Colman will be replacing Claire Foy, who depicted the Queen in the show's first two seasons.

    And if you compare Colman to the actual Queen at that age, you would see that she looks just like her.

    Bonham Carter was rumoured for months to take over the role from Vanessa Kirby. When it was announced that she was, Bonham Carter said in a statement: "I’m not sure which I’m more terrified about — doing justice to the real Princess Margaret or following in the shoes of Vanessa Kirby’s Princess Margaret."

    And here she is compared to actual Princess Margaret.
