It’s been almost two years since the new episodes of The Crown stream in Netflix – but everything has changed on Sunday that is November 17, when the streaming platform dropped season three to our feed.
The season moves into the role of Queen Elizabeth in the 1960s with Olivia Colman, working for Claire Foye. There is a hint for the change in the first episode when the queen is looking at her younger self’s postage stamp and then calls herself an “old bat”.
The rest of the cast is new, as well, with Helena Bonham Carter as the Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret, and Tobias Menzies (Outlander fame) as her husband Prince Philip. Producer Peter Morgan told Entertainment Weekly how to accommodate new actors in roles.
“I think it takes you about five minutes to use it.” And Coleman joked about working for the very popular Pho. “It’s frightening,” he said. “Everyone loves Claire Foy, so I have got the worst job in the world right now. You are all saying bad things, thanks! ”
In the first few episodes, we see that Queen Elizabeth facing a crumbling British economy, the death of a new prime minister, Winston Churchill, feelings of inadequacy when her “dazzling” younger sister and the heartbreaking national tragedy in Wales are compared with. And before we get into the lives of her two oldest children, Prince Charles and Princess Anne. All the problems and darkness at a time on her family.
Needless to say, fans are stuck about The Crown’s return, and they flare up on social media. “One person tweeted,” I looked and understood and I have no regrets. “And Princess Anne! Giving casual sex, zero fucks, throwing all the shadows on her family, saving the reputation, and giving her grandmother the public service she deserved.”
