Have we mentioned that being the Queen isn't easy?
Netflix's big new show is about the life of Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II, from the time of her coronation to modern times. You know her as the royal figurehead, but her life was tightrope act where personal feelings and desires were suppressed for the sake of queenly duty.
Forget being a fairy tale princess. Being a monarch isn't all royal balls and happily ever after. It's work, especially if you're the head of state.
The Crown will broadcast over six seasons, with this first season covering the early years of Elizabeth's regency. Watch the first season in its entirety on 4 November.
