claire foy was so good
"She was never really meant to wear the crown"
Well that is not really true.
Even IF Edward VIII did not abdicate, we must keep in mind that he never had any children with Simpson.
The Queen would have still been heir to the throne, it just would have been 20 years later.

I thought I would be a bit disappointed because I loved the actors and actresses from previous seasons and they really looked like the royals. The new season showcases more mature and more confident acting. The feel and excitement haven't changed. Still my current favourite series on Netflix.

Gabrielle Dee:
Lord Tywin is here.

The real story has so much drama, there's no reason at all for the Crown to get any facts wrong or take dramatic license. Especially as they get closer to current day, viewers will notice anything that isn't true.

Why does the new queen look 55 when shes only 37 in 1964?????

Aberfan disaster in the series is heart wrenching. Made me cry. Brilliant acting.

I wonder if we'll see the kidnap attempt on Princess Anne

Y'all, Tobias Menzies is bloody AMAZING in this
Jazmin Alvarez
Jazmin Alvarez:
It is very hard for me to grasp that the queen aged so much in 1 year when they switched from Claire Foy to Olivia Coleman.
In the beginning of the season she's 39 at the end 52, they should have change the actor mid season or something
Somewhere Upthere

Ok whoever did the voicing needs to be in EVERYTHING. I could listen to this person talk about anything. And thanks for the recap!
So far I think the highlights of season 3 are Helena as Princess Marget and Erin as Princess Anne.

just finished the entire season 3... LOVE LOVE..!! but my favorite is Princess Alice of Greece and Denmark... didn't catch the actress' name... but she did such a great job!!!
Iv Ra
Iv Ra:
The way I see it: Claire portrayed a very young woman who just started to learn the ropes of her new duty; who was naturally very stable but sometimes she had to 'wing it' and act more dominant than she feels to establish power and authority. That's why she had a power play with Philip, she was still building her confidence(as we all do in our 20s). And then we go to Olivia and more mature, calmer Queen. Her maturity shows in her marriage, where the power play is gone and in ability to question herself, her feelings and ability to forgive. What is beautiful here is that that is a story of all of us as we age and The Queen IS all of us, because she is human. That's the central story: differences in 2 periods of her life, differences in delivery of these 2 actresses. That's why the first scene starts with her looking at 2 portraits.
I must not finish this season by tomorrow...I am already halfway

Not binge watching honest. But episode 1 was wonderful. Props to Tobias Menzies and his Philip in this episode
Densum 81
Densum 81:
She was always going to become queen. Her uncle's wife was an older woman and was highly unlikely her uncle and Wallace would have had children due to their ages. However her becoming queen at such earlier age was never planned or foreseen.

Just finished binging. Here’s pros and cons:
Pro: the acting is exceptional; excellent cast.
Con: a little bit of Princess Margaret goes a long way - her poor me, victim number wears thin. She had a chance to tell them all to pound sand and marry Group Captain Townsend, but she wasn’t about to give up all of her privileges and The HRH.

I am struggling now to watch it because actress are so different .. I high I eye colour...I am not enjoin like before. It was better to try to make privies actor's older. It would worked better...
Nom De Plume
Nom De Plume:
The Kings Speech is a good background for Queens pappy lol and its a damn good movie.
"liberal movement" - WRONG. The Liberal Party was down to between 6 and 12 seats (out of 600) in these times. This was a SOCIALIST movement (which is precisely why it was, true to form, questioning the existence of the monarchy).
Dhel of the Zhangkani
Dhel of the Zhangkani:
Well, I guess the tradition of marrying a divorcee still runs in the family with a big middle finger to the system by Prince Charles and Harry.
W A:
Why do they keep telling us what’s gonna happen is season 3?! Just recap and let the people WATCH season 3

Edit: I didn’t say anything about spoilers, I just don’t see the point of them going on about what’s going to happen in the UPCOMING season! A recap should have just talked about the past seasons!!!
Liliana V.A. Hough

Ah and the Queen has blue eyes! Child Margaret has green eyes, old Margaret has almost black eyes!
WTH were you thinking?!
I am already hooked on season 3. It is wonderful!

Season 3 Prince Phillip, he will always be Captain Jack Randell to me.
By George, they did it!, The actors and the story line in series 3, continue to captivate. #10outof10
A catch-up I wanted, not spoilers for season 3 and this weird Americanised language!

This is spoiling season 3. I just wanted a recap
Now that this drama featuring the British Royal Family has three seasons, I wonder when Netflix can launch another show featuring the Japanese Royal Family?
Angelo David
Angelo David:
I really repeated the scene where Elizabeth and Philip fought and some paparazzi shot it in Season 2.
I didn’t watch season 3 yet but thanks for the recap..
Anyway, I have to see all the episodes again 😂

OMG just watched episode 7 Moondust and it was amazing!!! This is the BEST episode I’ve seen so far and think it would be hard to top. Awesome work Tobias, can’t say enough how good this episode was.
cell pat
cell pat:
The funny thing is that Margaret was 5'1", so Helena actually looks more like Margaret than Vanessa. I was put out by the actress change until I checked Wikipedia and found out about her short height. Not letting her marry Capt. Townsend was the saddest mistake of all. She paid for it with her messy lifestyle. RIP Margot.
pls tell me we will AT LEAST some beatles

They tryna show the best side of monarchy as after Diana's story people will change their views

I will need a Beatles reference at some point of the show... I mean...
Natalie Lomako
Natalie Lomako:
They had Andrew & Edward in the sixties, not right after Charles & Anne. There is a decade difference between HM’s second and her third child.
Ramona Houston
Ramona Houston:
I was excited and now after forcing myself to watch 2 episodes I'm done. Casting through whole vibe off. First game of thrones disappoints me now this. Grace and Frankie I'm counting on you lol

JaCara KM Style
JaCara KM Style:
So excited for season 3!
Thanks!!! and now i will
This season is a bit of filler before we get multiple assassination attempts and successes as well as thatcher and Diana next season

The kind of luck you need to have to become a queen.
The shout out to Madonna's movie "W.E." is SO welcome, it's a really good movie - it seems most of the criticism came from the fact that it was made by Madonna than anything else.
Wow...i am really so gonna watch S3...but i haven't finished S1, and i don't want to miss a thing. Gah! I guess it's time to binge watch...awww! ^_^
Amy Hodge
Amy Hodge:
Binged it. Was a bit let down.
Olivia Coleman did amazing. You have to take into thought the queen had been on the throne for over 20 years, have had four kids, and aged. Season 1 and 2 the country was in good shape. Season 3 is mostly when Britain is in economic crisis and in bad shape. If I was the queen during that hell I wouldn’t be happy 24/7.
F1 Fan boy
F1 Fan boy:
Queen Elizabeth II would’ve practically became Queen in 1972 because King Edward vlll never had any children plus that means that King George vl would have never had become king

Excellent recap. Thanks.

Waited until 3 am EST/12 am PST to binge-watch Season 3 of the Crown ... superb job by the entire cast!

1960s. When Britain thought pretending to be the Soviet Union was fun.
Ahem ahem architecture, politics...

Congratulations to
all the cast season 3. Beautiful how you pick an important part of this family story, elaborate and stop. This is not a biography or documentary. Is impossible to build details without knowing.
I get the, what is going on that times, may be not accurate but I believe the feelings then.
Episode 7 OMG!
totally forgot I was watching the crown. I felt that lost and dissiaponted every day and nothing can bring me back to believe in humans, greed and deception.
Glenn Davey
Glenn Davey:
Netflix can only afford a voice-over lady who records from inside a Pringles can
Season 1 and 2 cast were awesome and I thought that season 3 would be a let down. I was actually very pleased and the new cast being older and more experienced were seamless in the transition. The talent on the show is extraordinary.

I'm not used to the new Queen, her voice is much smaller. And yes, Margaret's hair threw me off.

Why does the new queen look 55 when shes only 37 in 1964?????

tsholo magaia:
Few characters kept me glued, Tobias as the Prince, Princess of Greece&Denmark, Lord Mountbatten and Princess Anne. They could easily have their own series. Ok love Helena but she struggled to walk in heels, it was a bit comical. Can't wait to see how they treat the Diana years. Maybe Meaghan will get a break when old Camilla wounds are rebroadcast and she resumes her old role of enemy number 1.
Feel the show misrepresents Wallis and Edward as a glorious love affair rather than the position they were stuck in at the end because of the scale of his actions to marry her.
