I’m an avowed monachist (well until Queen Elizabeth passes and then I’m all for an Australian republic). I loved Netflix’s series The Crown Season 1 and Season 2 is going to be released on 8 December. Elizabeth is played by Claire Foy and Matt Smith is Prince Phillip. The series reunites creator/writer Peter Morgan with director Stephen Daldry and producer Andy Harries.
The season begins with soldiers in Her Majesty’s forces fighting an illegal war in Egypt and ends with the downfall of her third Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan, after a devastating scandal. This new season will bear witness to the age of deference, and will usher viewers into the revolutionary era of the 1960s. As Queen Elizabeth’s marriage and empire crumbles around her, she must do what is required to ensure the British monarchy survives.
