It’s time to bow to a new queen.
At first glance, Staunton wore the Queen’s signature short bob, pearls, and yellow plaid dress. But she’s certainly not the first to conquer the throne as part of a Netflix series: before Staunton’s reign, Claire Foy And Olivia Colman Queen Elizabeth played.
And Coleman seems excited to hand over her crown. “Imelda is extraordinary,” she exclaimed to Radio Times In December, “And you’ll do everything better than me. I can’t wait to see what you do.”
Of course, the first picture of Staunton as the Queen isn’t the only annoyance we got for Season 5.
