Mark Your Calenders! Netflix Original Series #TheCrown premieres Nov 4th @Netflix_CA #Streamteam

 The Crown

A new Netflix Original premieres November 4th, 2016, and it's GOOD!

I had the privilege of attending a Netflix Canada event where not only did I get to watch the first two episodes of The Crown, but also participate in a short Question and Answer session with Jarod Harris and Vanessa Kirby, who star in this exciting new Netflix Original series about Queen Elizabeth II. In the first episode we're introduced to a 25 year old and newlywed Princess Elizabeth, who overnight finds herself Queen of England with all the responsibilities the position and title come with. 

Jarod and Vanessa were delightful ...
Both Jarod Harris, who plays the role of King George VI (Queen Elizabeth II's father) and Vanessa Kirby who plays the role of Princess Margaret (Queen Elizabeth II's sister) had the crowd hanging on their every word as they shared personal stories and insights on everything from the costumes and preparing for their roles, to their personal favourite British Royal. Of course they talked about some of their favourite series they're streaming on Netflix these days. Next we moved on to a delicious meal and cocktails made with Earl Grey Infused Gin, followed by a screening of the first two episodes.

I'm hooked! 
Not surprising since this drama offers viewers stories of life, love and politics, beautiful settings, gorgeous fashion and jewels, and a glimpse of a bared royal bottom just to spice things up. This one is definitely going on my What To Watch List!

Below are the trailers to help tide you over until November 4th ...
At which point you'll need to hold court and determine who'll be sovereign ruler over the remote, and who will be knighted official royal (snack) taster. 

Require a bigger dose of Royal-themed binging? These are currently available on Netflix:
  • The Queen
  • The Royals
  • Secrets of Great British Castles
  • Man Who Killed King Richard III
  • The Young Victoria
  • Gunpowder, Treason & Plot

Yep, just me Cathy thinking out loud about The Crown.
