The Crown is a fabulous historic drama about the early life
and reign of Queen Elizabeth II over the United Kingdom. My daughter recommended it, and once Alan and I started, we could hardly wait to see the next episode…like a great book you don’t want to put down! This 2016, 10-episode T.V. series garnered well deserved
but outstanding ratings: of 8.9 on IMDb and 90% on Rotten Tomatoes.The first season follows the life of Queen Elizabeth from her 1947 wedding to 1955, especially focusing on her family relationships, flashbacks to her childhood, and the development of her close alliance
with Prime Minister Winston Churchill. The producers expect to continue the series over six seasons,
each covering a decade of the queen’s reign up right up to the present day. The Crown, which cost $130 million to produce,
is the most lavish TV series ever produced, and spared nothing, including $35,000 to make a wedding dress for the first episode…just one of 7,000 costumes used throughout the series. Although there was some Hollywood sensationalizing, the overall consensus of critics is that The Crown gives a credibly accurate portrayal and is without a doubt the most intimate and humanizing look into the royal family ever. If you’re interested in British history during the time when the United Kingdom was the greatest, most influential kingdom on earth, check it out! It’s remarkable!
“Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” (Revelation 1:4-6)
