Netflix are bringing yet another original series to streamers this year with The Crown.

Set in a time when Britain was making its recovery from war and the Queen's empire was in decline, a young woman was forced to take the throne as a matter of duty rather than desire.

Going into a reality that many of us haven't seen before, and exposing the humanity of the characters involved - who are all based on real-life royal figures - the show will follow Queen Elizabeth II as a 25-year-old newlywed who's faced with some incredible challenges, such as forging a relationship with Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill.

The Crown reunites writer Peter Morgan with director Stephen Daldry and producer Andy Harries, for a series based on award-winning play, The Audience, delving into the inside story of the Queen's early reign.

Revealing personal intrigues, romances and political rivalries that were all behind the great events that shaped the second half of the 20th Century, The Crown promises to be an eye-opening series for all who watch.

The Crown is officially available to stream exclusively on Netflix from November 4.
