“The Crown” – World Premiere

Starring Claire Foy as Elizabeth II, The Crown will look at each decade of our current Queen’s reign, and how her life intertwines with that of the political ruling class.

Ex-Dr Who star Matt Smith plays Prince Philip, and US comedy veteran John Lithgow appears as Winston Churchill, wearing prosthetics and heavy make up.

Each season of The Crown will explore a different decade of the Queen’s reign, looking at the political rivalries that defined the history of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, as well as the personal dramas going on behind the closed gates of the royal palaces.

Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-reigning UK monarch, having sat on the throne for nearly 65 years (Queen Victoria almost made it to 64 years).

The Crown goes right back to the moment Elizabeth changed from a princess to a queen: the death of her beloved father, George VI, in 1953.

The 25-year-old Princess Elizabeth was in a Kenyan treehouse on holiday with her husband Prince Philip, when she received news of George’s death.

“It’s not just the story of a family, but the story of post-war Britain,” says Stephen Daldry.

“Are you my wife or my Queen?” Philip memorably asks Elizabeth in an early scene, before the boundaries between the private and the public have bee established.

On the other hand, with the sympathetic wisdom born of age, Churchill says to Elizabeth, “Never let them see that carrying the crown is often a burden.”

Netlfix series The Crown gives Claire Foy new respect for The Queen

By Rebecca English for MailOnline

Having starred in Wolf Hall, actress Claire Foy is more than used to time travelling for her roles.

The actress’ latest incarnation is likely to be her most challenging role yet – taking on the part of a youthful Queen Elizabeth during the early decades of her marriage to Prince Philip.

Dr Who actor Matt Smith plays the Duke of Edinburgh in Peter Morgan’s much anticipated new series The Crown, which documents the couple’s relationship from November 1947 to the Suez Crisis of 1956.

Writer Morgan, of course, earned plaudits for The Queen, starring Helen Mirren, and this time teams up with The Audience’s Stephen Daldry for what has been described as a ‘meticulously researched’ and sumptuous series.

Vogue magazine has printed a series of exclusive pictures with the cast, snapped by photographer du jour Jason Bell, who also photographed Prince George’s christening.

The ten-part drama doesn’t shy away from the grim realities of life, however: including showing a scene in which the Queen’s late father, King George VI, coughs up blood into his toilet bowl.

He died from lung cancer in 1952, propelling his eldest daughter, Princess Elizabeth, onto the throne in her twenties.

The series also shows one of his daughter’s (it is not yet clear which) seeing his body embalmed, which might cause some upset among viewers.

Scenes were filmed both at Elstree Studios and at some of the magnificent stately homes in the country: Hatfield House, Lancaster House, Loseley Park, Wrotham Park and Englefield.

The beautiful period costumes are the handiwork of Michele Clapton, who also designs the costumes for Game of Thrones.

The Queen is sensitively portrayed by Wolf Hall star Claire Foy, who is said to have captured the transition from carefree young princess, to mother and, then Queen, beautifully. Continue reading Netlfix series The Crown gives Claire Foy new respect for The Queen
