Cardi B has said she’d like to ‘eat biscuits’ and smoke cigarettes with Princess Margaret after revealing she's a big fan of The Crown.

Season five of The Crown landed on Netflix earlier this month and quickly earned itself a place in the ‘most watched’ list. You can see a trailer here:

This season we see Imelda Staunton as the late Queen Elizabeth II, alongside Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret, Dominic West as the then-Prince Charles and Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana.

Among those binge-watching the series is rapper Cardi B, who took to Twitter to ask her fans: “Y’all wanna talk about The Crown?”

She then confirmed she was only 13 episodes in but it seems she’s already got a favourite character.

In another post, she wrote: “I like Princess Margaret …I can see me smokin cigarettes and eating biscuits wit her”.

Princess Margaret had been played by Vanessa Kirby for the first two seaons, and later Helena Bonham Carter for series three and four respectively.

Season five of The Crown is arguably the most controversial as it covers the Royal Family in the 1990s, when the world watched on as Charles and Diana divorced amid claims of adultery with Camilla Parker Bowles (played by Olivia Williams in the show).

Some viewers suggested the timing of the show’s release was insensitive, arriving on Netflix just weeks after Queen Elizabeth died.

One such complaint came from none other than Dame Judi Dench, who said it poses a risk because ‘a significant number of viewers’ might believe it to be historically accurate, as well as accusing the show of ‘crude sensationalism’.

The backlash led to Netflix adding a disclaimer on YouTube, online, and Twitter descriptions of the show that reads: "Inspired by real events, this fictional dramatisation tells the story of Queen Elizabeth II and the political and personal events that shaped her reign."

While Netflix has placed some disclaimers around, it isn't going to be branding up individual episodes of the show with such a warning, and states that it won't be changing anything based upon public outcry.

A spokesperson told The Sun: “The episodes that dramatise events surrounding the Panorama interview remain unchanged.”

The popular show is set to have a sixth and final season before bowing out, which I’m sure Cardi B will be happy.

It had been previously suggested it would end at five, but writer and creator Peter Morgan said that wasn’t enough screen time to do the story justice.

He said: “As we started to discuss the storylines for Series 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons.”
