Follows the political rivalries and romance of Queen Elizabeth II's reign and the events that shaped the second half of the 20th century.
King George VI is played by Jared Harris, while his real-life father, King George V, was played by Michael Gambon in The King's Speech (2010). Harris's real-life father, Richard Harris, played Albus Dumbledore, and was replaced by Gambon.
In reality the Queen and Princess Margaret were almost the same height. Whilst Claire Foy is of similar height to the Queen, Vanessa Kirby (Princess Margaret) is almost 4 inches taller. In a scene of them walking together, Kirby has flat shoes to offset the height difference.
