Olivia Williams is to take over from Emerald Fennell as Camilla Parker Bowles in the final two seasons of Netflix's The Crown.

Olivia Williams is to take over the role of Camilla Parker Bowles in the final two seasons of The Crown.

The 52-year-old actress - known for The Sixth Sense, The Ghost Writer and An Education - will replace Emerald Fennell in the epic Netflix drama's final cast change.

Seasons five and six of the show will chart The Queen's reign through the 1990s and into the early 21st century - a period which saw Prince Charles divorce Princess Diana and go on to marry Camilla.

Imelda Staunton will replace Olivia Colman as The Queen, while Dominic West is in as Charles and Jonathan Pryce will portray the late Prince Philip.

Filming on the fifth season is expected to begin this summer.
