Netflix has released two stills of The Crown season 3's new cast members. The upcoming season will see Olivia Colman slip into the shoes of Emmy-winning actress Claire Foy as Queen Elizabath II. Tobias Menzies will follow in Matt Smith’s footsteps as Prince Philip.

Season 3 will also see Helena Bonham Carter replace Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret and Ben Daniels as Antony Armstrong-Jones, who was portrayed by Matthew Goode.

Josh O'Connor will be seen as a young Prince Charles, Queen Elizabeth II's eldest son, while Erin Doherty is playing Princess Anne, according to Collider. Marion Bailey will take on the role of the Queen Mother.

It was recently reported that Charles Dance, who played the iconic Tywin Lannister in HBO's Game of Thrones will be a part of the royal drama. Although it's not been confirmed what role Dance will be playing in the series, it's been rumoured that he will step into the shoes of Prince Charles' great-uncle Lord Louis Mountbatten.

Co-produced by Left Bank Pictures and Sony Pictures Television, the show will now be set in 1963 and chronicle the Queen's middle years as the monarch. The Golden Globe-winning period drama is set for a 2019 launch on Netflix.
