3 rea­sons you’ll be binge­watch­ing The Crown come Novem­ber 4

Elle (Canada) - - Radar -

1. You’ve got the post-Will-Kate-Ge­orge-Char­lotte-come-toCanada sads, and this drama, which tells the story of Queen E in the early years of her reign, is a timely roy­alz fix. 2. This is Net­flix’s most ex­pen­sive gam­ble yet, and you’re cu­ri­ous to see where that (re­ported) US$100mil­lion pro­duc­tion bud­get went. (Spoiler: We’ve seen some episodes, and the 1950s-era cos­tumes are gor­geous enough that we’re betting 99.9 per­cent of it went there, jus­ti­fi­ably.) 3. The real roy­als are sup­pos­edly “ner­vous” about this 10-episode se­ries, mostly be­cause famed screen­writer Peter Mor­gan ap­par­ently pulled no punches in de­pict­ing the strug­gles/strife/sexy times Lizzie faced with Philip when she was a 26-year-old new­bie monarch.
