The Crown came to an end last year, after six series on Netflix. The historical drama television series centred around the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, covered almost six decades of the monarch and saw three different actresses play the late unelected head of state. The final season concluded with the 2005 wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles.
