The role of Camilla Parker Bowles – aka Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall – has been set for season three of The Crown!

Emerald Fennell, well known for her work on Call the Midwife, will play the role of the Duchess this upcoming season!

“I’m absolutely over the moon, and completely terrified, to be joining so many hugely talented people on ‘The Crown,’” Emerald said. “I absolutely love Camilla, and am very grateful that my teenage years have well prepared me for playing a chain-smoking serial snogger with a pudding bowl hair cut.”

Olivia Colman, Tobias Menzies, Helena Bonham Carter, and more are set for season three of the hit Netflix show as well.

It was surely a somber day on the set of The Crown‘s third season.

Olivia Colman was seen dressed as Queen Elizabeth on Thursday (October 4) in Brecon Beacons, United Kingdom. Tobias Menzies, who is playing Prince Philip, was also seen on set.

It appeared as if the cast was filming the aftermath of 1966′s Aberfan disaster, which took the lives of 116 children and 28 adults. The tragedy struck on October 21 in the late 1960s when a large mountain of coal mining waste collapsed onto Aberfan, a Welsh village. It is said that periods of heavy rain caused the waste to suddenly slide downhill and engulfed a school, among other buildings and homes.More Here! »
