Okay I am slightly obsessed with this show. I’ve watched both seasons twice and have loved every second of it.

However, I am fully aware that although the events that happened are real the behind closed doors are not. Even doing a few google searches will show you that.

I’ve find it strange that there have been a number of threads with people asking questions implying that what happened on the show was real.

Do people actually think what’s on the show actually happened all in its entirety?

I really enjoyed the cute moments between Philip and The Queen at the start of season 2, it brought a sense of ‘normalcy’ to the relationship that I often wondered did they ever have at all?!

Could just have https://www.amazon.com/Crown-Season-3-Disc-DVD-2018/dp/B07DJ5MDBS/ref=sr_1_3?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1529509242&sr=1-3&keywords=crown+season+2 ship to me, but not sure about the language options. I would rather pay a little extra or wait rather than pirate and burn it as it is supposed to be a gift.

I mean he just had the parties and set up the meetings. He didn't know about the Russian guy did he?

Laura Altrincham later gave up his titles and was curious if that means he lost his peer ship. How does one become a Peer.

Also he didn't liked hereditary Parliament seats. Do those still exist? And did they ever have any power

In episode 5 of series 2 they show an underground station that is pretty close to the office of the national and english review, does anyone know the name of this station or is it a fictional one?

I don’t really understand the King’s limerick in the first episode:

There was an old Countess of Bray,

And you might think it odd when I say,

That despite her high station, rank and education.

She always spelled "Cunt" with a K!

I’m running a short project that compares voting systems and participants views/feelings on those systems. It may also be a handy learning tool at a later stage for demonstrating the different voting systems and their effects!

The Crown is part of the South Town constituency (just to the right of the page) as part of the Drama genre/party.

Looking up the ballots I just realized Netflix has a drama show in each constituency, though I think The Crown is one of the strongest of them personally. The episode dealing with Gordonstoun School was fantastic on its own!

probably the most contested constituency of the entire project, due to the number of major fanbases involved!

If you’d like to see your show win vote.

If you’d like to help me out with my thesis vote.

It should only take a minute or two!

…and if that doesn’t sway ye, voting will put ye in a draw for a €50 Amazon gift card!

Thank you for any help with the project, hoping to see some interesting data on people television, and voting system preferences!

So incredibly cringe inducing. I’d heard for so long prior to watching this that he was so great in this, playing the part of Churchill. It seemed very trite, and forced, every time he comes on screen I shudder with a sort of embarrassment. This is a great series so far, but am not impressed with JL performance.

Just started watching this show after watching The King's Speech, and I was surprised that the king isn't stammering. I understand that the film is set in the 30's and that The Crown is set in the 50', plenty of time to overcome it. I'm also well aware the film might have exaggerated it. But I expected him to still have some of that difficulty in the show. ¨

There are very few videos of the actual king George VI, but listening to his speech from 1951, he still seems to speak very slowly, individual words, enunciated, lisping, etc. etc. In the show he seems to speak completely ordinary.

What are your thoughts?

I'm sorry for posting this but i can't really see Claire Foy as Claire Foy and every interview of her it seems like she is playing a character, i see her as the queen. She is absolutely stunning as the queen, despite what people may say i think she should keep the hairstyle like in the crown, it looks so good on her. Good God she is the queen to me now. Despite my initial thoughts when i started watching the crown this series is so emotionally heavy, i have a very good time watching it but it drains me and makes me want to be like her, to carry myself in such a gracious manner. Its an extremely well done series!

My wife is at the 10 year mark of her career and we're moving to a new duty station soon, so we've been talking a lot about how we want the next decade to play out. After dinner we were having a "post-Army" discussion about what she wants to do once she's completed her 20 and retired and she brought up that she was sorry that I haven't been able to have a real career of my own. It's something that bothers me from time to time, but I've learned to make the most of the positions I do manage to get when we move somewhere and the small side business that I run.

Tonight we started watching "The Crown", which we've feel in love with immediately. We've only watched the first episode but one scene in particular struck me by surprise with how much I identified with it as a male military spouse: When King George takes Prince Phillip duck hunting and very plainly explains that his career and aspirations are secondary to his role as the spouse to the future Queen,or as he puts it "She is the job." I know that being a military spouse is nowhere near as dramatic or encapsulating of a position as being consort to the Queen of England, but it was very refreshing to see a strong male character being told and understanding that his wife's position taking priority over his own career. I know the show further gets into the struggle of Phillip being "less than" his wife and I'm sure there'll be more stuff that will strikes a familiar chord. I understand that he becomes an example of "what not to do" when placed in such a role, but it's nice to see a character that embodies some of the frustrations that I feel at times.

Can't figure out how to post a picture on here, but here's the link to what I am talking about. https://houseandhome.com/gallery/the-crown-netflixs-hottest-new-series/attachment/the-crown-gallery-netflix-queen-elizabeth/

Whose portraits are on the Queen's sash?

In the show, the Queen and Prince Phillip sleep in separate beds. How come? Is this still the standard nowadays? When Prince William becomes King, will he and his wife do this as well?

i felt like they went out of their way to portray Jackie as a Diana figure - wordly, charming, troubled, and much too open about her troubles. The difficulty of Elizabeth in engaging with that American/modern openness seemed very pointed.
