Helena Bonham Carter and Olivia Colman appear to have taken the sibling rivalry in the upcoming series of The Crown very seriously.

The pair, who are starring as Queen Elizabeth II (Colman) and Princess Margaret (Bonham Carter) in the beloved drama, have become close friends.

And, as with all friendships, the shade is on point.

During the pair’s appearance on the Graham Norton Show, the host mentioned the claims that Olivia has never been the best at researching her roles.

‘Understatement of the year,’ the Harry Potter star joked, before looking shocked at herself and giving her pal a quick hug.

However, she wasn’t done there as, when the pair were chatting to Chadwick Boseman about his new movie 21 Bridges, the star explained it’s set for release in 2022.

‘Have you already filmed it?’ Olivia asked, with Helena repeating to her: ‘2022,’ and quipping: ‘We’re not going backwards in time.’

The shade of it all.

The pair appeared on the show ahead of the new series of The Crown, with Helena recalling meeting a medium and speaking to Princess Margaret’s ghost.

As you do.

‘This story has gathered its own momentum,’ Helena began. ‘I actually went to see a friend about something else, but she has a talent for mediumship and she suddenly said, “Margaret is here. Does that mean anything?”

‘I hadn’t actually said yes [to the part] yet, but thought I’d ask her if I should take the role and she said, “You’ll be better than the other one”.

‘There was actually someone else up for the part and it was typical of Margaret.’

Helena added: ‘I’d met her a few times and you never really knew where you were with her, she had a way of complimenting and putting you down at the same time.’

The Graham Norton Show returns Friday at 10.35pm.
