Claire Foy is “not a massive fan” of the Queen’s outfits she’ll be wearing in the second season of Netflix’s hit series The Crown.
The new episodes – which star Foy and Matt Smith as Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip – will pick up where the first series left off, in the mid-1950s, and span seven or eight years.
“I loved wearing 1950s skirts, but I’m not a massive fan of the Queen’s choice of wardrobe,” Foy revealed to Entertainment Weekly, “I think when she was younger she didn’t have to have the uniform, she was more free.
“But as she gets older in the second season, she becomes much more like, “This is what I wear for work.” You start to see the formation of the Queen as she looks now — the hair and everything.”
No offence, Liz.
Foy has just received an Emmy nomination for portrayal of the Queen in The Crown, but she and Smith will both depart the show following this series, as it moves into the latter stages of the Queen’s life.
