Watching it with fascination
Never was a royalist
But now I know why
What a load of pretentious idiots
Possibally a touch better than most
But really what gives her the right to feel superior
An accident of birth ?
We've enjoyed the two series so far and look forward to the third. Olivia Coleman is playing HRH in the next series which should be good.
It's just a drama though. The events are real, well most of them, but the conversations are imagined and the portrayal of the individual characters will be a mix of what has been observed from old newsreel, what the director wants and the talents that each actor brings to their role. Their portrayal may be accurate, but it could just as easily not be!
From what I have read you can find, in equal measure, those who dismiss the whole thing as inaccurate rubbish, and those who praise the series for its honesty and accuracy.
