The Crown Casts Princess Margaret’s Future Husband

While we were amazed by Claire Foy’s portrayal of our favorite monarch and admired Matt Smith’s backside during season one of The Crown, we also suffered with Vanessa Kirby’s Princess Margaret who fell in love with a divorced man and due to the law wasn’t allowed to marry him.

Obviously, we already know that in real life Princess Margaret eventually found her Prince Charming, though the marriage to Antony Armstrong-Jones/Lord Snowdon didn’t last. The two were married from 1960 to 1978.

Yet, we will definitely see the couple’s love bloom during the second season of the popular Netflix show.

We don’t even have to ask ourselves who the actor is going to be who will portray Lord Snowden and steal Princess Margaret’s heart. RadioTimes has revealed that none other than Downton Abbey’s Matthew Goode has landed the role.

Goode really seems like the perfect choice, after all he was also able to conquer and warm Lady Mary’s heart.

However, he won’t be the only addition to the cast. The producers of the show are currently looking for an actor who will play Roddy Llewellyn in series three. Roddy Llewellyn and Princess Margaret had a five-year long affair that started in 1973 and embarrassed the Windsors.

In addition, the producers are also looking for an actress in her 40s and 50s, who will take on the role of the Queen in series three. In series six, which will also be the last, another actress will then take on the role of Queen Elizabeth II.

Series two is currently filming and will start off with the Suez crisis in 1956. It will presumably end around the mid-1960. At least we will see Princess Margaret enjoying her marriage and maybe we will see Elizabeth becoming a mother again. After all, her youngest son Edward was born in 1964, so it is at least a possibility and it would be a nice way to bid Claire Foy farewell.
