"I couldn't be happier playing Princess Margaret. The relay passed to me through two great actresses. (…) In addition, playing sisters with my dear friend Imelda Staunton will be nothing less than an absolute joy, ”said the actress of Phantom Thread. Imelda Staunton will play Queen Elizabeth II in the last season of The Crown . So far, the role of Princess Margaret has been played by Vanessa Kirby (season 1 and 2) and Helena Bonham Carter (season 3 and 4).
An expected final
The shooting of this final component has not yet started, but is already eagerly awaited. Season 5 will cover recent scandals in the British monarchy, including three divorces: Lady Di and Prince Charles, Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew, Mark Phillips and Princess Anne.
Furthermore, the role of Princess Margaret will certainly not be easy to interpret. The Queen of England's sister had a difficult end of life due to her excess and illness. In the mid-1980s, Princess Margaret had a partial lung removal. She also had mobility problems following several attacks. Prince Charles' aunt died at the age of 71 in 2002 at King Edward VII hospital.
