The Royals vs. 'The Crown' — How Do the Stars Compare to the Real-Life Monarchy? (PHOTOS)
One of Netflix's biggest series is nearly back with Season 4, but while fans wait for The Crown to return, we're taking a look at how the actors compare to the real-life inspiration.
From Queen Elizabeth to Prince Charles, viewers have seen some incredible casting for one of the world's most famous families. Netflix subscribers aren't the only ones who have noticed the uncanny similarities as star Claire Foy received the 2018 Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.
Similar to Foy, many of The Crown's stars have been recognized at awards ceremonies with nominations and wins. Olivia Colman took home a Golden Globe, like Foy, for her version of Queen Elizabeth II, and others recognized with Emmy nominations over the years include Matt Smith, Vanessa Kirby, Colman and Helena Bonham Carter.
Now with a new season on the horizon, we're sure the newest additions including Emma Corrin as Princess Diana will be just as gifted in their dramatized portrayals of the royals. As fans await the November 15 release date, scroll through the images below to see a side-by-side comparison of the real-life royal (or political figure) along with their onscreen counterparts from The Crown both past and present.
