This queen sounds like a royal pain.

Olivia Colman, who is set to portray Queen Elizabeth in the third season of the Netflix drama “The Crown,” will appear on an upcoming episode of “The Simpsons.”

“Just this second came from recording one of the best guest appearances in ‘Simpsons’ history,” tweeted the show’s executive producer James L. Brooks on Friday. “No kidding, I am flying.”

Although details are scarce, the 45-year-old actress will be voicing “the most down-home femme fatale ever who attracts every man she’s ever met but falls hard, harder than she ever imagined, for Homer Simpson,” wrote Brooks.

In February, Colman snagged a Best Actress Academy Award for her comedic performance as 18th-century British monarch Queen Anne in “The Favourite.”

Colman received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in July for playing Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s godmother on the British show “Fleabag.”

“The Simpsons” previously leaked that “Aquaman” star Jason Momoa, supermodel Chrissy Teigen, singer John Legend, standup comedian John Mulaney, primatologist Jane Goodall and “Better Call Saul” lead Bob Odenkirk will be voicing guest shots for the upcoming 31st season of the animated series.

Odenkirk will play a mob lawyer on “The Simpsons,” in a script penned by his brother Bill Odenkirk, Entertainment Weekly reported in July.
