For later life, Fergie is said to be keen on Oscar-winner Julianne Moore, 58, who also sports a head of vibrant red locks.

A source told The Sun that the duchess has ‘really enjoyed’ the first two series of The Crown, despite it not going down so well with other members of the Royal Family. 

‘She’s told several people close to her she really loves the idea of Eleanor after watching Poldark,’ the source claimed.

‘In later life, she’s keen on Julianne Moore. These days something as big as The Crown actually matters – for a whole new generation that’s how they will know who the duchess actually is.’

The Netflix series returns for its third season this Sunday, with Olivia Colman having taken over from Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II.

The third and fourth series will cover the years 1964-77, with series one and two having covered the earlier years of the monarch’s reign.
