New Photos of 'The Crown' Cast Are Here, and Helena Bonham Carter IS Princess Margaret

The Crown season three is coming up fast, and we've already gotten a glimpse of Olivia Colman as our new Queen Elizabeth. She's taking over the role from Claire Foy, and in a teaser trailer released Monday, we hear a clock ticking the seconds away as Colman, decked in white gloves, crown, official sash and gown, looks frostily into the camera. 

Now, in an exclusive from Entertainment Weekly, new cast photos from The Crown's third season are here. We see Colman as a pensive Queen Elizabeth, Helena Bonham Carter as a haughty Princess Margaret (nailed it!), Tobias Menzies as a smug Prince Philip, and Ben Daniels as a disheveled Antony Armstrong-Jones. (Scroll through the Instagram slideshow below to see all the photos.)

Besides Colman, who won the Oscar for Best Actress this year for her role in The Favourite, we'll see Josh O’Connor (Florence Foster Jenkins) and Marion Bailey (Allied) take on the roles of Prince Charles and the Queen Mother, respectively, while Pennyworth's Emma Corin will play a minor role as Princess Diana in season three (and take on the much bigger role in season four, when Diana is being courted by Prince Charles). Call the Midwife's Emerald Fennell will play Camilla Parker Bowles.

And let's not forget Sex Education's Gillian Anderson as "Iron Lady" Margaret Thatcher.

The Crown's third season premieres on November 17.
