Starring Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II and John Lithgow as Winston Churchill, Netflix's original series The Crown, created by Peter Morgan and growing out of his Oscar-winning movie The Queen starring Helen Mirren, paints a unique and intimate portrait of Britain's longest-reigning monarch. This official companion to the show's first season is an in-depth exploration of the early years of Elizabeth II's time as queen, complete with extensive research and additional material.

After watching The Crown, I had to get this book for the exact reasons it was written: to find out what in the series was real and what was dramatized. This book did not disappoint!!! All I can say is that I hope there is a book about Season 2 on the way.
