A NEW image has been released from The Crown: Season 3 – featuring a first look at Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

The Crown returns with season 3 in 2019.

The release of the image is the latest snippet to emerge from the set of the critically-acclaimed Netflix drama, which finds Olivia Colman playing Queen Elizabeth II for the first time (replacing Claire Foy).

BAFTA nominated Josh O’Connor (God’s Own Country) and Marion Bailey (Allied) have also joined the cast as, respectively, Prince Charles and the Queen Mother.

Tobias Menzies will replace Matt Smith as Prince Philip, while Helena Bonham Carter will succeed Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret.

In addition, Line of Duty actor Jason Watkins will also appear as British PM Harold Wilson following on from John Lithgow, who won an Emmy for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in the first season.
