Helena and director Tim, 62, announced they were separating in 2014 after famously living in two adjoining houses in London throughout their marriage in.

The film star admitted it has taken a while for her family to ‘adjust’ she said that things were ‘really very good now’, after initially struggling with not not having her two children, Billy, 17, and Nell, 12, around all of the time.

Helena also revealed that she believes The Crown’s creator, Peter Morgan, asked her to play Princess Margaret because she was able to relate to her very public break-up.

While Helena insisted she wasn’t able to reveal why she and Tim went their separate ways, she did say: ‘I didn’t leave, put it that way’.

Since the split Helena has been dating ‘magic’ boyfriend Rye.

Explaining how they met, she said: ‘A totally random thing, which both of us nearly didn’t go to, so it was one of those moments that was so chance and ended up determining so much. A really happy accident, and it’s an amazing thing.’ 

The Cinderella star had a famously unconventional 13-year relationship with director Tim.

On finally moving on, the Enid star – who previously dated Irish actor Kenneth Branagh between 1994 and 1999 – admitted she grew tired of ‘grieving’ their relationship, and now leads a ‘happy’ life with her new boyfriend.

Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar UK, the thespian shared: ‘You break up, you grieve, you get bored of grieving. And then you finally move on.

‘I’m very happy with someone else. It’s been a bit of unexpected magic in my life.’ 

Season four of The Crown is set to return to screens on Sunday, November 15th on Netflix.
