“The Crown must win, must always win.”
Netflix’s latest original series, “The Crown”, centres around the private life of Queen Elizabeth II. The show had a production budget of about £100 million (approximately RM538 million), making it the broadcasting company’s most expensive original series to date.
The series stars Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II, former “Doctor Who” actor Matt Smith as Prince Philip, John Lithgow as Sir Winston Churchill, and Dame Eileen Atkins as Queen Mary, Elizabeth’s grandmother.
The 3-minute trailer starts off with Princess Elizabeth and her husband Prince Philip finding out that the former will be crowned queen, as her father, King George VI, has died. Other scenes include Elizabeth’s marriage to Prince Phillip, her struggles as both wife and Queen, and Sir Winston Churchill making a
rather sexist speech.
