‘Queen is like a woman at a bus stop’: Creator of Netflix hit The Crown says Her Majesty is so beloved by Britons because of her ‘relatability and humility’

  • The Crown creator praises ‘relatability’ of Queen and the actress who plays her 
  • Peter Morgan says the Queen looks more like a woman at a ‘bus stop in Carlisle’ 
  • He praised Olivia Colman who brought an ‘ordinariness’ to playing Her Majesty

The Queen looks more like a woman at a ‘bus stop in Carlisle’ than a royal, according to the creator of Netflix hit The Crown.

Peter Morgan said actress Olivia Colman, 45, has brought an ‘ordinariness’ to playing Her Majesty in the upcoming third series of the drama.

He stressed: ‘What I love about Olivia is that she is an ordinary woman. There’s a relatability and humility and an everywoman-ness to her that I think the Queen has too.

‘Ordinary’: Her Majesty, now 93, is pictured above.  Creator of The Crown Peter Morgan said: ‘She feels like an ordinary woman trapped in an extraordinary predicament’

‘The Queen is the grandest person in the world but there is also something about her is that is quite ordinary. She feels like an ordinary woman trapped in an extraordinary predicament. If you cast a very grand actress…it immediately feels royal in a way that this particular Queen doesn’t.

Mr Morgan, 56, who was educated at top private schools, added: ‘You see other members of royal families around the world looking so aristocratic but the Queen looks like she could be at a bus stop in Carlisle. There is something kind of fabulous about that and Olivia brings that to the role.’

The new series of The Crown begins on November 17.
