Cardi B wants to sit down with Princess Margaret and eat biscuits after watching The Crown

Cardi B shared her wish to 'eat biscuits' with Princess Margaret after watching The Crown.

The fifth season of the hit Netflix show premiered this month and stars Imelda Staunton as the Queen and Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret.

After watching 13 episodes of the series, Cardi took to Twitter to have a conversation with fans about the royal drama.

"Y'all wanna talk about The Crown?" she asked.

In season one and two, Vanessa Kirby played Princess Margaret while Helena Bonham Carter took on the role in seasons three to four.

The WAP rapper was asked what she thought about the relationship between then-Prince Charles and Camilla.

She answered: "I haven’t gotten there yet… I’m on episode 13."

The rapper also posted: "I like Princess Margaret… I can see me smokin cigarettes and eating biscuits wit her" (sic).

Earlier this month, Mariah Carey revealed herself to be a fan as she wore a diamanté tiara to watch the show.

The singer was also celebrating one of her tracks making it into the show.

Her hit 1991 song, Emotions, played out in the new episodes which follow a young King Charles and Princess Diana.

“THE CROWN premiered last night and of course I had to have my own screening dahhlings!” Carey wrote on Twitter.

“Bonus fact: my song Emotions is in the first episode! ahhhh!! Thank you @netflix.”

Netflix tweeted: “Everyone knows how much @MariahCarey loves The Crown so we hooked up the ultimate superfan with a queen-calibre early screening of the Season 5 premiere inside of her home where she watched the first episode, which features her song Emotions!”

Along with her tiara, the All I Want for Christmas hitmaker added a pair of huge diamond earrings as she posed for the camera.

Following the release of the show, fans took to Twitter to question the casting of Dominic West as Prince Charles.

While some complimented Dominic, 53, on his portrayal of the now King, others were distracted by his appearance claiming he is 'too good looking' for the role.

One tweeted: 'Dominic West is too handsome to be portraying Prince Charles in The Crown,' while another added: '#TheCrownNetflix just dropped and I have to say, strong start with the transition from past to present and Claire Foy, but Dominic West is just too handsome for Charles. Elizabeth Debicki is perfect as Diana.'

A third posted: 'Dominic West has too much charm to be playing #that man,' with one also posting: 'Dominic West is way too charismatic to play Prince Charles.'
