Brilliantly Done
25 November 2019 | by rodrick1987See all my reviews

Definitely my favourite episode of season 3. I was very excited and eager to see Josh O'Connor take the role of the young Prince of Wales and he didn't disappoint. He became Charles brilliantly in every way from the way he speaks to his mannerisms and the way he walks. Also the writing was quite good and kept me interested to the point of watching it again. Cinematography also played a role as it took us to beautiful Wales and the magnificent last scene with Charles literally made me tear up. Now Olivia was amazing too on that dialogue with Josh.
