Where did the series "Crown" come from?
It may be more correct to translate the series "Throne", but because the broadcast of three seasons of it coincided with the years when the series "Game of Thrones" also It was aired on HBO so that, in order not to make a mistake, we translated "The Crown" as "The Crown", while the series refers to the entire British throne.

Peter Morgan wrote a screenplay in 2006 called "The Queen," from which a film of the same name directed by Steven Freers was made. Helen Mirren played Elizabeth II in The Queen. The film tells the story of Princess Diana after her death, how Queen Elizabeth II reacts to the death of her beloved bride. A reaction that no one could have predicted. Unlike Tony Blair, the then Prime Minister of England, and her son Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, the Queen believed that because Diana and Charles had been separated and that she had died in a car accident in Paris, her death was a private matter and not the death of a royal family member. . However, the newspapers headlined "Prince of the People" and showed that they did not care if Diana's mother was considered part of the royal family. Diana will remain the mother of Britain's future Prince William and Prince Harry.
It was a successful film for which Helen Mirren won the Academy Award for Best Actress. In 2013, Peter Mogan wrote a play called "The Spectator" about Elizabeth II's relationship with her prime ministers. The "Crown" series was based more on this second source.
In November 2014, Netflix announced plans to make a series based on the "Spectator" play, written and co-written by Peter Morgan. The series' directors, including Stephen Daldry, Philip Martin and Benjamin Caron, were the same ones who also appeared in the "Spectator" theater production. The first season of the ten-episode series became the most expensive drama series Netflix had ever produced. The cost of producing the first season was around 100 million.
