The third season of The Crown will return this summer, with Olivia Colman playing the Queen, after Claire Foy portrayed her younger years. Meanwhile, Helena Bonham Carter will replace Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret.

Actresses tipped to take on the role of Diana are Les Miserables' Ellie Bamber, Bohemian Rhapsody's Lucy Boynton and Little Drummer Girl's Florence Pugh.

The third season of the Netflix series is said to cover the Apollo 11 moon landing, as well as introduce Charles's second wife Camilla Parker-Bowles and cover the decolonisation of Africa and the Caribbean as well as the birth of Prince Edward in 1964.

We're really looking forward to it.
