Creator Peter Morgan envisages the series as being sixty episodes in total over six seasons, with the first season depicting events up to 1955. Claire Foy will portray Queen Elizabeth II for at least the first two seasons. See more »
In reality the Queen and Princess Margaret were almost the same height. Whilst Claire Foy is of similar height to the Queen, Vanessa Kirby (Princess Margaret) is almost 4 inches taller. In a scene of them walking together, Kirby has flat shoes to offset the height difference. See more »
Where to start is very difficult when it comes to what I can only describe as an amazing feat of production and acting. The cast are absolutely outstanding and are nothing but professional.
You can tell a lot of effort has been put into the research and accuracy of the story line. The attention to detail also has to be credited.
I can't find a fault and believe me I've tried. Having watched previous biopics/Dramas regarding royalty I will have to put this at the Top and that is including The Queen which again I would rate at 10/10.
In summery a must watch if you are looking for a great piece of production and a stimulating story line. I would recommend this to anyone.
