THE CROWN Preview: Duty Must Always Win

When Princess Elizabeth first married Philip, they were a normal family. Or as normal as anyone who had grown up royal could be. They had two young children and a video camera and a lot of laughs and love.

But by the second episode of THE CROWN we see the moment when everything changes for Elizabeth. Her father – King George – dies and suddenly she is the Queen. Her grandmother lets her know that there is only one true way to be a monarch — to put duty first and never let her personal life get in the way of the crown. And from that moment on Elizabeth embraces her duty, even while her husband learns what it means to bow to his wife and his sovereign.

THE CROWN will premiere on Netflix on Friday, November 4.
