The Weinstein Company's 'The Imitation Game' Los Angeles Special Screening Hosted By CHANEL - Red CarpetFirst, a lady, now a princess — Matthew Goode certainly knows how to romance British aristocracy.

The "Downton Abbey" actor is joining the cast of Netflix's Golden Globe-winning drama "The Crown" in season 2, reports the Radio Times. He'll play Antony Armstrong-Jones, a society photographer who marries Princess Margaret (Vanessa Kirkby) and becomes Lord Snowdon.

Goode proved he can pull off the white tie and tails when he starred in the final season of "Downton Abbey" as race car driver Henry Talbot, who romanced and wed Lady Mary Crawley. As Lord Snowdon (who recently died in real life), Goode will have the difficult task of sweeping Margaret off her feet after her devastating breakup with Peter Townsend.

"The Crown" is already filming season 2, which will cover Queen Elizabeth II's (Claire Foy) reign through 1964.
