Fact Vs. Fiction: Princess Margaret's 'Raunchy' Marriage (Affairs! A Love Child!) on The Crown

There is much more to know about Princess Margaret than her doomed love affair, her taste for liquor and her epic put-downs.

Now a new generation of royals fans will be introduced to her wild marriage to society photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones, a central theme of season two of The Crown.

Margaret (Vanessa Kirby) married Armstrong-Jones (Downton Abbey‘s Matthew Goode) in May 1960 — but even while they planned their engagement, the groom-to-be was still conducting another affair.

As he prepared to head to Queen Elizabeth’s Scottish retreat of Balmoral in the fall of 1959, Armstrong-Jones was sleeping with Camilla Fry, who

The Crown is broadening its horizons in season two.  "This season, we go totally out of the palace in ways that I don't think you'd expect," star Vanessa Kirby revealed to E!

Queen of Shade: Princess Margaret’s Reply When Asked to See Photos of a Friend’s Kids Was Epic

Queen of Shade: Princess Margaret’s Reply When Asked to See Photos of a Friend’s Kids Was Epic
Princess Margaret was the Queen of Shade.

Often rude, cantankerous, and certainly snooty, Margaret had the ultimate put-down when asked by a host if they wanted to see some new photographs of the family’s children. It was a moment that tickled actress Vanessa Kirby, who again plays Queen Elizabeth’s younger sister in The Crown, which begins streaming its second season on Netflix on Dec. 8.

“Margaret said, ‘Why on earth would I want to see that?’ It’s just perfect that she didn’t give a crap about someone else’s kids, but the fact that she always says what she means – amazing,

Here at Et, we’re obsessed with a lot of things -- and here’s what we’re most excited about this week:

Why We're Obsessed With 'The Crown'

Picture this: A hard-partying heir to the throne gets engaged to someone employed in the arts -- Gasp! How common! -- while a royal baby is expected any day. Real life? Well, yes, thanks to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and Baby Cambridge No. 3. But in a perfect case of life imitating art imitating life, all of these are also key subplots of the second season of Netflix’s The Crown. Emmy nominee Claire Foy -- in her final season of the series -- remains outstanding as Queen Elizabeth and is capable of seamlessly shifting her portrayal from a harried mother of four to queen of everyone, including you, you inept ingrate of a prime minister, by squaring her shoulders and steeling her gaze.

Pour another glass because our favorite import -- Matthew Goode -- is back with a second season of The Wine Show, Sky Vision’s food and travel magazine series, which moves the action from Italy to the South of France. Available on in the U.S. on Hulu, the show became a favorite among viewers thanks to the bromance between Goode and co-host Matthew Rhys and their journey through the heart of Italy in search of tasty wine and lasting memories. Joining Goode (who also stars on The Crown season two) is James Purefoy, an equally English and handsome actor, who steps in for Rhys.

New Trailer For The Crown Teases Royal Romance For Margaret

Last week brought us the first trailer for season 2 of Netflix’s The Crown. The streaming service’s Royal family drama was a hit when it debuted in 2016 and the initial teaser promised more of the same to come, as Queen Elizabeth (Claire Foy) and Prince Phillip’s (Matt Smith) marriage is tested even further by the all-important duties of ruling the country.

In this newly released promo that you’ll see above, the focus is shifted away from the central couple and onto Elizabeth’s wayward sister, Princess Margaret (Vanessa Kirby). At the end of season 1, the Queen decided to forbid Margaret from marrying her fiancee Peter Townsend, due to the national scandal it was feared it would cause. Naturally, the trailer proves that the sisters’ relationship has become strained ever since, with Margaret indulging in heavy drinking and partying.

However, the teaser reveals that it doesn’t take

Tensions Rise In First Trailer For Season 2 Of The Crown

Our first look at season 2 of Netflix’s hit royal drama The Crown has now arrived!

The debut season launched to critical acclaim when it premiered on the streaming service last November. In particular, it was praised for its very human portrayal of the English royal family, as Elizabeth (Claire Foy) and her husband Phillip (Matt Smith) struggled to adjust to the changes in their lives as the former ascended to the throne. The couple’s problems only look to be intensifying in season 2 though, as this new trailer shows us.

The footage here teases conflicts rising on all fronts, with the Queen herself confiding in Phillip – now sporting a thick beard – that she fears the monarchy might not survive another public scandal. Unfortunately for her, there will be lots of drama within the family this season, as her wayward uncle David (Alex Jennings) returns to Britain and Princess Margaret

Season two of The Crown looks even juicier than the first!

We’re just over a month away from the premiere of the second season of Netflix’s smash hit series, which chronicles the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, who is portrayed by actress Claire Foy.

Trailer Watch: The Monarchy Struggles to Keep Up with the World in “The Crown” Season 2

The Crown

“Britain has changed beyond recognition,” Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy, “Wolf Hall”) watches a commentator say on television. “Yet the monarchy continues its pre-war routines as though nothing has happened.” The struggle to preserve the traditions of the monarchy while the rest of the world evolves looks like it will be the main conflict of Season 2 of “The Crown,” which has just released a new trailer scored to “I Only Have Eyes For You.”

As her sister Princess Margaret (Vanessa Kirby, Thea Sharrock’s “Me Before You”) embraces herself as “a woman for the modern age,” Elizabeth just wants to avoid scandal, especially when it concerns her adulterous, dissatisfied husband, Prince Philip (Matt Smith, “Doctor Who”). “This restlessness of yours — it has to be a thing of the past,” Elizabeth tells him. “One more scandal, one more national embarrassment, and it would all be over.”

Margaret’s affair with a photographer (Matthew Goode, “Downton Abbey”), the eventual downfall of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan, and an apparent flirtation with a mystery man (Danny Sapani, “Harlots”) are just a few other plotlines “The Crown” has in store for Elizabeth this season.

The Crown’s” first season collected 10 Emmy nominations and earned Golden Globes for Best TV Actress (Foy) and Best Television Series.

Season 2 will stream on Netflix beginning December 8. Check out the trailer and poster below.

“You married a wild spirit,” someone warns Queen Elizabeth in the Season 2 trailer for Netflix’s The Crown. “Trying to tame him is no use.”

And while Philip’s chafing at his official role does seem to take up a lot of his wife’s energies in the promo, released Monday, the queen has a bunch more problems — both foreign and domestic — to deal with in the upcoming second season. Per the official release, the new episodes will take place “as the fragile social order established after the Second World War breaks apart.”

‘The Crown’ Season 2 Trailer: Claire Foy Shows It’s Still Hard to Be the Queen

‘The Crown’ Season 2 Trailer: Claire Foy Shows It’s Still Hard to Be the Queen
When last we left Queen Elizabeth (Claire Foy), Prince Phillip (Matt Smith), and the rest of the royal bunch on Netflix’s “The Crown,” is was turmoil that reigned. Increasing disputes over the Suez Canal, a Prime Minister resignation, and the continuing pressures of royal demands all threatened to overtake whatever happiness lingered below the show’s surface.

From the looks of things in the latest official trailer for Season 2, a lot of those concerns remain. As one of TV’s preeminent prestige dramas, “The Crown” has somehow found a way to turn well-documented history into a suspenseful on-screen narrative. (And give Phillip a big beard in the process!)

Olivia Colman Replaces Claire Foy in 'The Crown' Season 3 and 4
There's a new queen in town!

Olivia Colman will replace Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth in seasons three and four of The Crown, a source close to the production confirms to Et.

Foy, who won a Golden Globe earlier this year for her performance in season one of the drama, was originally cast to play the young Queen for only two seasons, as each season roughly follows a decade in the Queen's life.

Season two will focus on the Queen's marriage and empire as it begins to crumble. It will also see the return of Matt Smith as Prince Philip and Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret. Matthew Goode joins the show as Margaret’s husband Antony Armstrong-Jones.

Harvey Weinstein Once Called Hayley Atwell a Fat Pig

Harvey Weinstein Once Called Hayley Atwell a Fat Pig
The hits just keep coming for Harvey Weinstein who has recently been publicly accused of being a serial sexual harasser and an all-around terrible human being. It's been reported that the Hollywood mogul has been paying off accusers for decades and more people are stepping forward to tell their stories about Weinstein and his antics. In the wake of the accusations, many who were close to Weinstein have begun to jump from the sinking ship as public outrage begins to grow and more allegations stack up. The latest accusation comes from the New York Post's Page Six.

The new report details a trip that Harvey Weinstein took to visit the set of Brideshead Revisited, which was filming in the English countryside in 2007. Weinstein visited the set because his first company, Miramax, was negotiating to distribute the project in the United States. The movie features performances from talented actors including Hayley Atwell,

Get in the zone: the many adaptations of Roadside Picnic

Padraig Cotter Oct 11, 2017

The sci-fi novel Roadside Picnic has inspired works in film, TV, books and even videogames...

Stalker was the final film Andrei Tarkovsky made in the Soviet Union, and is a hypnotic, beguiling experience that refuses to surrender to any one interpretation. That hasn’t stopped critics and fans attempting to apply their own readings of course; is it a religious allegory, a commentary on life in the Soviet Union, an essay on filmmaking or is it about three miserable Russian blokes having a bit of an aimless wander? It could be all of the above, or none - it’s up to each viewer to decide for themselves.

The film is a loose adaptation of Russian sci-fi novel Roadside Picnic by Boris and Arkady Strugatsky, and while on the surface they share similar characters and themes, they play out very differently. Even more interesting is how Roadside Picnic
