This fascinating series tells the story of the British Monarchy during the reign of George VI, and the subsequent coronation of Elizabeth II, following George’s death in 1952. If you love history, and even if you don’t, you will find this series to be an absolute delight. It’s hard not be swept away by the wonderful set, the gowns, the decor, and of course the brilliant cast, led by Claire Foy as Elizabeth, and John Lithgow as Winston Churchill, performances which won them both Golden Globe awards. If you enjoyed The King’s Speech or Downton Abbey, you will likely enjoy this series, too.
