A Game of Thrones actor is going to play Prince Philip in series three and four of The Crown.

Tobias Menzies will take over the role from Matt Smith.

Netflix has already confirmed Olivia Colman will take over as the Queen, and it's thought Helena Bonham Carter will play Princess Margaret.

The show's creator, Peter Morgan, is writing both seasons 3 and 4, which will be filmed one after the other.

Season 3 will cover the years 1964 to 1976, and it has been confirmed that viewers will be introduced to a young Princess Diana.

A release date for the new episodes has not yet been announced by Netflix.
