The Crown is inching closer and closer to its season 3 premiere (can we get a premiere date already?), and with it are coming more casting announcements to fill the roles of individuals that were a part of the Queen’s life in later years.

Next up, we have Camilla Parker Bowles, who is currently married to Prince Charles whose role will be played by Call The Midwife’s Emerald Fennell. Season 3 of The Crown is set in the 1970’s which is around the time a younger Prince Charles met Camilla.

In a report released by Deadline, Fennell shared her thoughts on joining the all-star cast of The Crown:

"“I’m absolutely over the moon, and completely terrified, to be joining so many hugely talented people on The Crown. 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 haircut.”"
