The Crown on Netflix

Today we took a slow dive into Netflix series The Crown.

We are late comers to The Crown as it has just finished Season 3 with Season 4 upcoming (out of 6 planned seasons).

The Crown traces the life of Queen Elizabeth II from her wedding in 1947 to the present. The first season depicts events up to 1955, with Winston Churchill resigning as prime minister and the Queen's sister Princess Margaret deciding not to marry Peter Townsend.

We've watched the first four episodes so far and it is quite a good show. There seems to be a little poetic licence going on with some characters being shown in a slightly better light than they perhaps deserve so it will be interesting to see if this continues or the show tried to take on a more real view.

I am definitely not a Royalist but this one is worth a watch.
