Here's who will play Camilla Parker Bowles in the new season of The Crown

Who's excited for season three?

As we edge ever closer to the third season of The Crown, excitement is growing to see a whole new cast in action.


Yes, for the next season of the show we’re about to take a significant time jump with the entire show being recast as the show tells the story of the royal family during the 70s.

And while we already know the majority of the show’s new stars, one character, in particular, has yet to have the actress playing her announced.

Camilla Parker Bowles is one of the most intriguing members of the royal family as her relationship with now-husband Prince Charles was the source of front-page news ever since the pair were first linked back in the 1970s.

And now it looks like we know who will be playing her.

Images leaked from the set of the show indicate that Call the Midwife star Emerald Fennell is to play the Duchess of Cornwall in the upcoming season.


Fennell might also be known to viewers thanks to her roles in The Danish Girl, Anna Karenina and Any Human Heart.

She will star opposite Josh O’Connor who was already been confirmed to be playing Prince Charles earlier this year.

The leaked images seemed to show the pair reuniting at a polo match in 1975 after they had called time on their relationship two years previous when Charles joined the Royal Navy.

If the pictures are to be believed, Emerald joins Olivia Colman, Helena Bonham Carter and Tobias Menzies for season three of the hugely popular Netflix show.
