Move over, Olivia Colman. There’s a new Queen Elizabeth in town, and she came all the way from Hogwarts.
On Friday, Netflix dropped the first photo of Imelda Staunton as the 95-year-old monarch for the upcoming fifth season of The Crown. The image was released on the official social media accounts of the popular Netflix series. “An early glimpse of our new Queen Elizabeth II, Imelda Staunton,” the post’s caption read.
In the photo, we see Staunton Her Majesty standing in her chambers while sporting her iconic hairstyle and a yellow-patterned bow-tie blouse. Of course, we couldn’t help but notice she was rocking her signature pearls.
