Call me shallow, but my disappointment was that there was no scene of the Beatles receiving their MBEs in 1965!

I did find this season much more "black and white" - Anne is young, confident and sexual, Charles is shy, distant from his family yet clever, the Queen is pretty business like with little emotion, Camilla - wiser, experienced a bit of a tease. Unlike the previous 2 seasons when it felt each character was fully formed this seems more like Channel 4s slapstick comedy "The Windsors" with extreme characterisations, almost caricatures of each family member.

I also feel like much more the facts were embellished upon (or at times down right made up) to add drama rather than taking historical facts and making up what may have one on behind closed doors about it. This is something that as we approach more recent times which more people can remember is something the Crown writers and researchers are going to have to be more careful about.

Princes William and Harry could very well appear in Season 4 of the Crown.

Fans of Claire Foy will be pleased as the actress has just filmed 'flashback'scenes for Season 4 of the Crown,Olivia Coleman will continue in the main role.

The last episode of "The Crown" was one of the best. The scene between Helena Bonham-Carter (Princess Margaret) and Olivia Colman (the Queen) illustrated their enduring bond. Colman finally showed some depth of emotion in the role, and Bonham-Carter's portrayal of a deeply wounded, but caring Margaret was on point.

Speaking of the Queen Mother, I really don't think either versions of her were portrayed very well at all. Certainly not in looks, voice or character.

I think Imelda Staunton, the rumored next HM, looks a lot like the Queen Mother.

I have only started watching this series but a bit underwhelmed so far. One whole episode about how bored Philip was
.. boring.

Oh I'm definitely a Helena. I'm prone to taking long naps to rest up for a good night's sleep. *That* is the definition of being reTIRED.
