Last year it turned out that she had allegedly hired a clairvoyant to contact the late Princess Margaret before playing her at The Crown.
And now it is claimed that Helena Bonham Carter, 53, & # 39; consent & # 39; got from the late Princess Margaret to play her in the third and fourth series of The Crown, after she had made contact through a medium.
It has also been reported that the actress – who was taken from Vanessa Kirby to play the rebellious royal – held seances between her film scenes for the Netflix series in her dressing room.
Approval? It is claimed that Helena Bonham Carter, 53, & # 39; received permission & # 39; of the late Princess Margaret to play her in The Crown, after she had made contact through a medium
A source told The sun: & # 39; Helena was just a young movie star when they met at a royal movie premiere, and the fact that she had so much influence on her made it especially important to receive her blessing.
& # 39; But she got much more, including small acting tips, such as using her cigarette and cigarette holder to express herself in The Crown, just like in real life.
& # 39; She even passed on her advice to cast and crew on set when there was a question about the princess. Helena would reassure them: "Margaret says it's okay". & # 39;
MailOnline has contacted Helena Bonham Carter's representatives for comments.

Helena will take over the role of Vanessa Kirby, who played Elizabeth & # 39; s sister in the first two seasons of the show, and admitted that she and her co-stars Olivia and Tobias Menzies – who will replace Matt Smith as Prince Philip – will feel that pressure to continue from the & # 39; successful & # 39; first two series.
She said Variety on the 8 red carpet of the Ocean: & I think we are all … we are terrified.
& # 39; I also think that since the first two seasons were such a success, we have the responsibility to take over the responsibility to do justice to all these truly famous people, and to inherit on top of it, from this previous generation of actors who have done such good jobs.

Hope and glory: in the third series, Olivia Colman also takes on the role of Queen Elizabeth II, a role previously played by Claire Foy (right)
& # 39; None of us is completely like our previous generation. We don't really look like our real people either. I don't look like Margaret. I don't think Olivia looks special, but it's interesting. We just have to try to create some sort of essence. & # 39;

In addition, the first two seasons over the past two years have collected no fewer than 26 Emmy nominations.
