Things get personal in new trailer for The Crown

“Might I suggest not being head of the church, or the state, or the army, or the navy, or the government…” snaps Prince Philip at Queen Elizabeth II in the new trailer for The Crown.
The latest glimpse of Netflix’s royal drama doesn’t shy away from the personal conflict facing the young queen. With Great Britain reeling from the devastation of war, the former princess finds relationships with her loved ones changing forever – and not just Matt Smith’s Philip. A promising tease of Claire Foy’s performance, as well as a reminder of the behind-closed-doors thrill of Peter Morgan’s script, The Crown just keeps looking better and better.
The whole thing ascends to Netflix on Friday 4th November.
Behind the scenes of Netflix’s The Crown
14th October 2016
What’s it like to be made queen at the age of 25? Netflix’s epic new drama, The Crown, aims to answer that question with the tale of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign.
It’s no easy task – and this new video, which takes us behind the scenes of the costume drama, gives us an idea of just how ambitious the production is. With a reported budget of around £100 million, the series pits the streaming giant not just against ITV’s recent Victoria, but also Britain’s fine tradition of period dramas established by the BBC.
All that and capturing the relationship between the crown and her country over the last six decades? Just another day at Netflix then.
All episodes of The Crown arrive on Friday 4th November.
Move over, Victoria – here comes The Crown

The country is in love with ITV’s Victoria at the moment, but Netflix is out to steal some of that royal spotlight with its own drama.
Unveiling a new, extended trailer for its original production, the video gives us a better look at Claire Foy and Matt Smith facing the challenges of royal life. Written by Peter Morgan, the show focuses on Queen Elizabeth II as a 25-year-old newlywed faced with the daunting prospect of leading the world’s most famous monarchy while forging a relationship with legendary Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill.
The programme promises to reveal the Queen’s private journey behind the public facade, as the young woman took the throne at a time when Britain was recovering from war.
The Crown will premiere on Netflix around the world on Friday 4th November and will be available in 4K.
