WORTH The hype: The Crown

Look (UK) - - HEY BUSY GIRL! -

Move over down­ton Abbey! The build-up to this has been ridicu­lous, but we can tell you this bud­get-bust­ing £100m se­ries from Net­flix is worth it. The show fol­lows Queen Elizabeth ii from her wed­ding day through­out her reign and ex­plores the re­la­tion­ship be­tween No.10 down­ing Street and Buck­ing­ham Palace. We’re hooked on its glossy style and killer cast. Here’s who and what you should know.

ob­sessed with...

Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth. She’s prim, proper and oh-so el­e­gant. You’ll recog­nise her from: 2015’s Wolf Hall – clearly Claire suits pe­riod dra­mas.

crush­ing on...

Matt Smith as a young Prince Philip. You’ll recog­nise him from: Dr Who and fan­cy­ing him for ages…

lov­ing...

Vanessa Kirby as the beau­ti­ful (and way­ward) Princess Mar­garet. You’ll recog­nise her from: Me Be­fore You, where she played Will’s ex-girl­friend Ali­cia.
