The Crown On Queen Elizabeth’s Death

The director of The Crown Stephen Daldry previously told Deadline that the series had plans in place to pause production if the monarch passed away during the show’s run.

Daldry said, “None of us know when that time will come but it would be right and proper to show respect to the Queen.” He added that The Queen was a global figure and that the series would make a simple tribute as a mark of respect.

Daldry described the Queen as an “extraordinary woman” and added that people would be upset when she passed away.

The Crown revolves around Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. Actor Claire Foy portrayed the Queen for the first two seasons and Olivia Colman took over the role as the Queen for seasons 3 and 4. Imelda Staunton plays the role of Queen Elizabeth for season 5, which will release in November 2022. The change in actors was done to reflect the ageing process over the period portrayed.

Queen Elizabeth II, the Britain monarch who reigned for 70 years passed away on September 8. She was the first monarch to reign for 70 years and passed away at the age of 96 in Balmoral Castle, Scotland.

Buckingham Palace said in a statement, “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon”. The late Queen was under the medical supervision of doctors before her death. She was the Queen of the United Kingdom and 14 other sovereign countries.
