27 “The Crown” Season 4 Moments Vs. The Real-Life Events Proving How Detailed The Series Is

Featured Video

Netflix’s ‘The Crown’ is back with another season as it takes ahead the story of the British monarchy by a few years. While Olivia Colman’s character of Queen Elizabeth II remains in the highlight in almost all episodes considering she’s running the show, two new women characters of Margaret Thatcher and Princess Diana pull the balance from under the Queen, time and again.

However, what particularly impressed the audience was the show’s ability to accurately nail the casting in every season and remain as possible authentic to actual events. Be it Emma Corrin’s uncanny resemblance to Princess Diana or Gillian Anderson as Margaret Thatcher, the casting is beyond perfect.
