Who's playing Princess Margaret in The Crown?

  Who's playing Princess Margaret in The Crown? From Queen of Hearts to Anne Boleyn, if there’s one thing Bonham Carter’s proven she can do, it’s a captivating regal role. Reportedly, she was initially considered for the role of Queen Elizabeth but it was decided she was best suited to the rebellious, and at times controversial, younger sister.The part of the Queen instead went to Broadchurch actress Olivia Colman and, for a fun piece of pub trivia, both Bonham Carter and Colman have played the Queen Mother – the former in The King's Speech and the latter in Hyde Park on Hudson.© Bauer Media Princess Margaret.

Tennis trailblazer Billie Jean King has called for a renaming of Margaret Court Arena due to the Australian legend's divisive views on sexuality.

King, who has been named Australian Open Woman of Year on the 50th anniversary of her first title in Australia, said she had a friendship with Court but the arena should no longer be named after her.

"I don't think it's appropriate ... she's gotten derogatory," King said, adding that she would not play on the court if she was still in action.
