‘I like her’: Cardi B reveals she wishes she could ‘smoke cigarettes and eat biscuits’ with the late Princess Margaret after watching The Crown
Rapper Cardi B has revealed that she’s a huge fan of the controversial Netflix show, The Crown.
The WAP hitmaker, 30, shared a tweet on Wednesday saying that after watching the hit series, she would have loved to have had ‘cigarettes and biscuits’ with the late Princess Margaret.
The royal died in February 2002 at the age of 71 after four strokes, but her story is currently being portrayed in the series by actress Lesley Manville, 66.
‘I like Princess Margaret… I can see me smokin (sic) cigarettes and eating biscuits wit (sic) her,’ Cardi wrote.
The tweet got more than 41,000 likes.
Princess Margaret has also been portrayed on the show by actresses Helena Bonham Carter and Vanessa Kirby.
The new season of The Crown stars Imelda Staunton, 66, as the late Queen Elizabeth and Dominic West, 53.
Elizabeth Debicki made her debut as the late Princess of Wales on Netflix’s The Crown during its premiere earlier this month.
The Crown suffers continued backlash for opting to dramatise traumatic moments from Diana’s final years, among them her notorious 1995 interview with Martin Bashir and the Paris car crash that precipitated her untimely death in 1997.
In a new interview with British Vogue she told how she was ‘overwhelmed’ with the prospect of taking on the character – as well as reflecting on recreating her ‘revenge dress’ scenes.
She told the publication: ‘I think in the very beginning that did overwhelm me, the idea of this kind of collective [of Diana disciples] out there.
‘It’s a trap, right? A swampy quagmire. So, I would stand over the kitchen sink and say, ‘I cannot do this.’
During the chat she also reflected on wearing Diana’s iconic black ‘revenge dress’ – which she says she felt was ‘super risqué’ for the time.
She explained: ‘It was pressure! It’s a complex dress. I let the fittings happen around me while I thought about what the dress meant. Why this dress? She’d had it for two or three years. It was super risqué at the time.
‘She was claiming the space. The way she walked out of that car, the luminosity, the strength of her as that car door opened, she was so fast and so forward. It’s an extraordinary thing to watch.
‘To decide what you’re saying about yourself through fashion… it was a currency. An incredibly powerful currency.’
