Helena Bonham Carter to play Princess Margaret in 'The Crown'

'Tis been reported that Helena Bonham Carter - patron saint of quirky girls everywhere - is now in talks to take over the role of Princess Margaret (formerly portrayed by Vanessa Kirby) in Season 3 and 4.

The show is reportedly "near a deal" to have Helena take on the role in the show's third season, taking over for Vanessa Kirby, who played Margaret in the first two seasons.

Bonham Carter is no stranger to playing a royal; she's portrayed the Queen Mother in The King's Speech, 16th-century queen Lady Jane Grey, and Henry VIII's second wife Anne Boleyn on-screen-not to mention Alice in Wonderland's Red Queen.

Variety are reporting that Bonham Carter is all but confirmed to take up the royal mantle but she has yet to confirm anything.
