The Crown Has Cast Their Camilla Parker Bowles
In the upcoming third season of Netflix's royal drama, the series is retiring its original actors to appropriately age-up the lead roles.
With that time jump comes a fresh new cast of characters, including an adult Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker Bowles.
Pics were reportedly obtained from the set, which has now revealed the actor playing Parker-Bowles to be Call the Midwife star Emerald Fennell.
She'll be playing opposite Josh O'Conner, who was previously announced as the new Prince Charles, with the third season covering the decade between 1964-74, meaning Camilla would still be Ms Shand at that point.
Camilla and Charles were apparently introduced around 1971, but Charles didn't pursue her, and she ultimately met and married Andrew Parker Bowles in '73.
In a statement, Fennell said she was "absolutely over the moon and completely terrified" to be taking up the iconic role and joining such an all-star cast.
"I absolutely love Camilla," Fennell continued adding, she was "very grateful that my teenage years have well prepared me for playing a chain-smoking serial snogger with a pudding bowl haircut."
Fennell joins the likes of Olivia Colman -- who'll be stepping into the role of Queen Elizabeth, as well as Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip and Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret.
Season three will reportedly not feature Diana Smith.
The Crown is still in production but is expected to hit Netflix in 2019.
