Olivia Colman has issued a warning to her replacement as Queen Elizabeth in the final seasons of The Crown.
When asked if she had spoken to Staunton following news of her casting, Colman said she hadn't but that she would be "so excited" to do so.
"If she calls me, I'll be so excited," Colman said, adding that she "wouldn't know what to say" to the Vera Drake actor.
When prompted to share her words of advice, Colman said she would say: "Good luck… the wig's itchy."
The Crown returns to Netflix for its fourth season on 15 November.
The brand new trailer was released earlier this week showing tumultuous scenes involving Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor) and Princess Diana (Emma Corrin).
