First look at the Netflix series 'The Crown' inspired by the life of Queen Elizabeth

Inspired by the life of Queen Elizabeth, the new series The Crown (debuting in late 2016 on Netflix) examines the personal struggles, romances and political rivalries behind the monarchy. In this first look at the series, actress Claire Foy wears the heavy crown of the Queen alongside former Doctor Who actor Matt Smith who stars as Prince Philip. No expense was spared in the filming for the 10-part series. From a replica Irish State coach to pretend 1940s newspaper photographers, every detail was arranged to make the series look as authentic as possible.
