The Crown’s Claire Foy has confirmed she has split from her husband Stephen Campbell-Moore.
In a statement, the pair confirmed the news: ‘We have separated and have been for some time. We do however continue as great friends with the utmost respect for one another.’
The pair wed in 2014 and have a two-year-old daughter, Ivy Rose.
The news comes weeks after Stephen revealed that while she was filming the second season of The Crown, he was battling a devastating brain tumour diagnosis.
The 33-year-old actress was the toast of Tinseltown thanks to her role as Queen Elizabeth II on the Netflix drama, winning Golden Globes and Baftas, but in her personal life, Claire was coping with the news that her husband, and the father of her daughter, would be going through a life-changing operation.
Stephen, also an actor, was diagnosed with the benign tumour on his pituitary gland, at the base of the brain, at the end of 2016 when Claire was filming the second season with Matt Smith, and underwent surgery.
Of the split, a close friend told The Sun: ‘After seven years together this came as a real shock to many of their friends, but they’re lovely people and are determined to keep everything civilised.
‘They’ve just decided that unfortunately their relationship simply wasn’t working and that this would be for the best.’
