A very interesting series created by Netflix. The show loosely follows the life and events of Queen Elizabeth. I’ve never paid much attention to the royal family, so I find this show very informative, even knowing that the show may not be entirely factual. One impression I get from the show is that Queen Elizabeth and prince Phillip were not always happy in their marital relationship. I haven’t watched the entire series so I may rewrite this post later.
Based on an award-winning play (“The Audience”) by showrunner Peter Morgan, this lavish, Netflix-original drama chronicles the life of Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy) from the 1940s to modern times. The series begins with an inside look at the early reign of the queen, who ascended the throne at age 25 after the death of her father, King George VI. As the decades pass, personal intrigues, romances, and political rivalries are revealed that played a big role in events that shaped the later years of the 20th century.
