Emerald Fennell played the much maligned figure of Camilla, an aristocrat who had a long-standing affair with Prince Charles while he was married to Princess Diana.
Charles and Camilla eventually married in 2005, years after Diana was killed in a car crash in 1997.
Emerald took on the role in season three and four of the hit drama.
When she bagged the role, Fennell said that she was “absolutely over the moon, and completely terrified, to be joining so many hugely talented people on The Crown.
She 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 haircut.”
Olivia Williams is reportedly set to take on the role of Camilla in seasons five and six of The Crown.
The fourth season of the Crown covered the time period between 1979 and 1990.
So, the next season of The Crown is expected to include the breakdown of Charles and Diana’s union, as well as Diana’s famous 1995 Panorama interview with the disgraced Martin Bashir.
