Netflix's 'The Crown' is 'Deep Throat' of Royal Porn

My interest in the goings-on of the Royal family is practically nil. I could scarcely tell you who any of them are, and yet, when they’re in movies and put into the context of history, I become infinitely fascinated. Tabloid gossip I’m not such a fan of, but when that tabloid gossip becomes history, I love it. I wish, in fact, that The King’s Speech had been completely about Edward VIII’s abdication crisis, because that’s the only thing I cared about in that film.

Netflix’s 10-episode series The Crown picks up not long after Edward VIII’s abdication. The first season is set in the 1940s, and will concern itself with the drama surrounding Queen Elizabeth’s (Claire Foy) ascension to the throne, her marriage to Phillip (Matt Smith), and her troubled relationship with Winston Churchill (John Lithgow!).

I didn’t think I’d care, but the trailed sucked me in.

Can you believe she’s still the Queen? It’s been nearly 70 years. She’s nearly 90. Prince Phillip is still alive, too. He’s almost 95. That’s crazy!
