All Rise: The First Photo of Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth in ‘The Crown’ Is Here
When Netflix announced that Olivia Colman would be replacing Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II in season three of The Crown, we couldn’t wait to spot the Broadchurch star sporting QE’s signature bright skirt suit and pearls. Now, the wait for Queen Liz 2.0 is finally over.
The ’Flix just dropped the first-look photo of the brand-new Her Majesty, and we have to admit, the resemblance is uncanny.
Colman can be seen (literally) sipping tea and enjoying a side of toast and orange marmalade at her Buckingham Palace breakfast table. It looks like just another day in the life of the leader of the Commonwealth, and we can’t help but wonder if her beloved Prince Philip is sitting across from her…or if they’re still having, um, issues.
