Did Queen Elizabeth Just Prove She Watches The Crown?

  Did Queen Elizabeth Just Prove She Watches The Crown? A sneaky Season 2 reference made its way into her Christmas speech.In the fifth episode of the most recent season of The Crown, Foy’s version of The Queen gives a disastrous and stiff speech to workers at a car factory. At the time and as depicted in the episode, royal critic Lord Altrincham suggested one solution to the Queen’s communication difficulties was to televise her annual Christmas message—which she has done ever since. In this year’s speech, many suspect, the Queen paid direct homage to that Season 2 plot.

The Imperial Crown , which is lighter and more comfortable than St. Edward's crown , is worn at the end of the BTW, The Koh-i-noor diamond was in the crown of Queen Elizabeth , The Queen Mother, when she was consort to King George VI. Very interesting hub Sebastian about the Crown Jewels .

The Crown Jewels worn by Queen Elizabeth II may be sparkling and beautiful, but as she says in this clip from the Smithsonian Channel’s upcoming documentary, The Coronation, in which she makes a rare candid speaking appearance, “there are some disadvantages” to it.

“It’s only sprung on leather — not very comfortable,” the 91-year-old, record-breaking royal says of the item she wore only once, at age 25 on her coronation day nearly 65 years ago. Later, she notes, “there are some disadvantages to the crowns, but otherwise, they’re quite important things.”

The Crown Jewels is part of the Royal Collection, which consists of 140 items and contains 23,000 precious stones. The headgear, known as St. Edward’s Crown, was destroyed after the English Civil War and remade for the Coronation of Charles II in 1661. The one-hour TV special, which airs on Jan. 14, traces its history and sees Her Majesty looking back and sharing memories of that fateful day on June 2, 1952, as well as the coronation ceremony of her father King George VI in 1937.

The Reason People Can't Stop Reading Queen Elizabeth's Wikipedia Page

  The Reason People Can't Stop Reading Queen Elizabeth's Wikipedia Page The Queen’s Wikipedia page is getting quite a workout these days. The Crown , which chronicles the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, has turned millions of fans into Anglophiles and royal watchers. As a result, a record number of people are turning to her Wiki for more information. The Queen’s entry (which you can find here) was the third most read page on Wikipedia in 2017. It’s a bump from 2016, the year of The Crown‘s first season premiere, when she ranked in 13th place. Of course, although the Netflix hitcovers a lot of ground, there’s still reams of information about the 91-year-old monarch’s life that isn’t included — or is dramatized, leading to curiosity about what’s fact and what’s fiction. Fellow Crown characters Princess Margaret and Prince Philip also ranked highly, at 37th and 44th place, respectively. In an annual report published by their editorial team, Wikipedia said the results “speak to the power that entertainment now holds over us.” The two pages that topped Queen Elizabeth in 2017? First place went to the “Deaths in 2017” page, while second place was held by President Donald Trump. A non-Crown royal made Wikipedia’s top five for 2017, too: The Queen’s soon-to-be granddaughter-in-law, Meghan Markle, nabbed the fifth spot. (Game of Thrones‘s seventh season took fourth, the spot between the two.) People also wanted to learn more about Queen Elizabeth’s great-great grandmother, Queen Victoria, who is the subject of another ongoing series (on PBS), Victoria. Whenever a new episode of Victoria airs, Wikipedia saw a spike in both the pages for the show and Queen Victoria herself. Queen Victoria also ranked in 13th place in 2017 for overall views — the same place as Queen Elizabeth in 2016.
