Meghan Markle has signed up to star in the third season of The Crown, the Netflix series that focuses on Elizabeth II’s early life.

“I’m really excited to start this project,” enthused the US actress, who has just finished filming her final series of Suits, the legal drama that made her a household name.

“I have quite a busy schedule next year but it should all work out fine.”

Season 3 of The Crown will follow Queen Elizabeth as she rules Britain throughout the mid-1960s.

It hasn’t been announced as to which character Markle will play, but show creator Peter Morgan has hinted that, “She’ll need to work on her accent…a lot.”
