I remember her as Lady Jane Grey and I think she did a great job in that role. She was very young back then though.

I can't say she's one of my favourite actresses. She either overacts so that her character becomes farcical or she doesn't seem to bother at all and simply appears as herself wearing a costume. I assume this casting is for "middle aged" Margaret but for older Margaret they should absolutely consider Stephanie Beacham who played the Princess on stage and bore a great resemblance.

I love The Crown, but the portrayal of The Queen Mother and Princess Margaret is wrong, IMO.

Both The Queen Mother and Princess Margaret worked on The Queen’s behalf in the UK and Commonwealth. In The Crown, The Queen Mother is busy eating and watching tv. Princess Margaret is busy drinking, partying and depressed on love.

Now, Princess Margaret was the party girl, but she did work a lot too.

Her performance as Queen Elizabeth in "The King's Speech" was beautifully played, in my opinion.

I think, HBC in The Crown could positively work out. I absolutely love how she styles herself in private and sometimes for public events. But i have similiar opinion like gaudete, for me her acting seems sometimes too "gekünstelt".
I think, what the series makes clear, is, how much/ how big is the brf part of the pop culture or which other rf gets a funko pop treatment, gets a show with 6 series. Although I have to take in account i know almost nothing about other kingdoms in asian/african countries.

I just finished watching the second series this week (I created a Netflix just so I could watch the Crown, haha) and I have to say that I think I preferred it to the first series. I look forward into watching series three - now I don't know how to spend my evenings

Claire Foy as HM is definitely my favourite character - I'll miss her in the next series!

I have major issues with the depiction of the DoE, appallingly misrepresented 'in the Crown' by Matt Smith's boorish, sulky, sexually unrestrained, overgrown spoilt brat)

Netflix seems to have lazily bought into the Duke of Windsor's snide caricature of QEQM as 'cookie' [solely 'munching' whilst watching telly] , rather than a more interesting and realistic depiction of her pivotal role, during this period.
As for the DoE, the episode with Gordonstoun, education of Prince Charles, and death of his sister and family.. it was SO wrong on so many levels. peppered with inaccuracies - playing with timelines, casting blame where none existed, and needlessly overdramatising what is [in Cecilie's case] already a heartbreaking story.

She was superb in the role and a pleasure to watch ,it will be strange to see someone else playing H.M. in series III!

I just read something on Twitter that season 3 will introduce Diana.

I'm rather wary of that...hopefully they won't go all tabloid. Wonder who will play Diana?

Claire Foy did an amazing job and if Olivia Colman is indeed taking over to the play the part of the Queen, she has form since she played the part of the Queen Mother a few years ago:

Olivia Coleman was already announced as the new Elizabeth. She is signed on. The same with Helena Bonham Carter.

Paul Bettany as Philip isn’t confirmed and the latest report is he has withdrawn himself from consideration. His wife Jennifer Connelly is signed up for a tv show based on The Snowpiercer movie. So he may not want to separate his family (they has 2 school age kids) to come film here in the UK.

Claire Foy is so good in this role that I have wondered why they don't just "age" her with makeup and let her continue to play it? But, I am sure Olivia Coleman will be great, too.
