The Royals – on the small screen and in the Big Apple


The writer of The Queen and The Audience is creating a new drama series about the British monarchy for Netflix.

The Crown is being written by Peter Morgan and each series of the drama will look at the political rivalries and personal intrigues across a decade of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, beginning with the young princess who is faced with leading the royal family as well as trying to develop a relationship with Winston Churchill.

The series should be available from 2016.

Does anyone think Call The Midwife’s Jessica Raine might be a good choice for the young queen?

Meanwhile William and Katherine will be traveling to New York in December.

The three day visit to the Big Apple will include a gala dinner benefiting their former university, St Andrews, a visit the 9/11 memorial and a stop-off at a basketball game in Brooklyn in support of an ongoing collaboration between their Royal Foundation, United for Wildlife and the NBA.

Sadly Prince George won’t be joining his parents on the trip which takes place December 7-9.
