The Duchess of York, 61, also known as Fergie, said she is close to The Crown’s producer Andy Harries and she wants to ask him to hire Julianne Moore to play her in the blockbuster Netflix series.

“I have known Andy Harries and I spoke to a great friend of mine who worked with him a long time ago. I said to her, ‘Oh, I’d love to get Andy to look at Lady Margaret and then while I’m asking him about it maybe I could say Julianne Moore [pictured below] should play me’,” she told the BBC Radio 4’s Front Row podcast.

Fergie is currently played by Jessica Aquilina.

According to The Telegraph, “It is not clear if the Duchess of York will play a more prominent part in season five, which is expected to arrive on Netflix in 2022. But the change in cast would open the door to the Duchess’ dream cast to come to fruition.”

Fergie will not discuss the contents of The Crown but said she is a fan. “Cinematography is my middle name, and I am a director. Would I think the cinematography of The Crown is totally genius? Yes, I think it is. I think Andy Harries is a genius director. I think it is beautifully done.

“And would I want Andy Harries to direct Lady Margaret? 100 per cent yes,” she added in reference to her recently published novel loosely based on one of her ancestors.
