The Crown Season 5: Imelda Staunton to play Queen Elizabeth ll

Britain’s and maybe the world’s most beloved royal family, The British Royal Family has just become more of the world’s favourite since the inception of The Crown, an Amazon-Prime Video production portraying the life of the royals. Placed on centre stage; however, is the story of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, her life, the obstacles she faced on her way as she ascended the throne. While the story was gripping for the one million viewership the show had, what was more intriguing was who played the part to perfection each season.
