Queen Elizabeth assumed the throne at the age of 25 with a husband and two children. The Crown depicts the friction that responsibilities and expectation in the royal court have on relationships, specifically between Elizabeth and Phillip. Photo courtesy goes to Netflix.

The Crown uncovers the weight of the crown and country on the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, has shown a growing popularity. The 10 episode Netflix original, created by Peter Morgan, was released November 4, 2016.

The program recently won a Golden Globe for the Best Television Series in the drama category and Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, as well as being nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television.

The series stars Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth, Matt Smith as Prince Phillip and Vanessa Kirby as Princess Margaret.

This series is elaborate and detail oriented; the fashion and architecture are an amazing representation of the era that is well made and definitely showed a higher caliber of production that might be seen on PBS.

“The Crown” had a great mixture of historical and dramatic moments to keep the show engrossing and as accurate as possible. It touched on the history and issues with Prime Minister Winston Churchill regarding his age and health and the drama regarding Princess Margaret and the Church of England.

“The Crown” gives insight into the personal relationships of the royal family, going behind the scenes to what was not made to the public. This series is one of the top trending shows on Netflix because viewers get to see something considered private “from” another time period.

The biographical drama portrays mainly the relationship between Elizabeth and Phillip.

This show is not completely accurate, but what television show really is? Although it does touch on the King George’s cancer and stutter, commonwealth tour, The Great Smog of 1952, the televised coronation and Churchill’s resignation.
