It seems a considerable time period between the dropping of season 2 and season 3. During these 613 days of wait, a lot has happened to the royal family that made it to the news. From the birth of Prince Louis to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, there was much to make us desire for The Crown Season 3.
The royal family drama won the Golden Globe for best drama. It has become an indisputable hit from the very first release. You are still reading this means you’ve watched the first two seasons. So, let’s start knowing the undoubted hit of Netflix for 5 amazing facts.
1. Who will play The Crown?
Peter Morgan, the creator of the show, the man working tirelessly to make the show the best among all, said at the start of the show that every season of the show will cover a decade of history. This makes sense what he added about the cast. The cast for season 3 and season 5 will see change.
The creator announced that a Best Actress Oscar earlier this year for her work in The Favourite, Olivia Colman will play the lead role. Surely, it would be a treat to watch her playing Queen Elizabeth II.
2. Prince Philip
After the role of Queen Elizabeth II, the role of Prince Philip is the leading role of the show. Officially it was announced in March 2017 that Tobias Menzies will take the role for the next two seasons.
3. Menzies, you spill the beans!
an interesting fact about the crown season 3 is that Menzies accidentally leaked the release date before it was officially announced by Netflix. In late July, Menzies during a BBC radio show accidentally hints the release date for season 3.
4. Who will play PRINCESS MARGARET?
As the roles of The Crown and Prince Philip are important, so does the role of Princess Margaret and there were long-running speculations about the role until it was confirmed that Helena Bonham Carter will play the role in The Crown Season 3.
5. Princess Diana’s appearance in The Crown Season 3
The huge time jumps between seasons suggest that we have to wait a bit more to see Princess Diana in the show. The creator has confirmed that Princess would appear for the first time at the end of the show.
