I grew up in a home where my mother obsessed over the House of Windsor. Her weekly reads consisted of biographies about the Monarchy. I learned a great deal myself about all the famous Kings and present day Queen who have ruled over the United Kingdom. So when I came across this Netflix original drama series, I couldn’t help but watch it.
The series chronicles the life of Queen Elizabeth II which includes her early reign as a young Queen. Episode one shows us a young Princess Elizabeth and her marriage to Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (former Prince of Greece and Denmark). The episode quickly introduces you to their two children, Charles and Anne.
The Crown does a wonderful job documenting a young Princess and eventual Queen Elizabeth II as well as the politics that are involved surrounding her reign. I highly recommend The Crown, especially if learning about the House of Windsor is of interest. It’s a good drama and a good history lesson!
