One of the most interesting new series to come out on television over the last few years has to be the Crown. This is the partly fictionalised tale of the reign of Queen Elizabeth the Second. To add spice to the program she is still the current monarch. Starting with her Father King George the Sixth’s reign we see the young Princess marry her cousin and chosen spouse Philip shortly after victory in the Second World War. Georges health is failing, he was a prolific smoker, and  whilst on Honeymoon the Princess gets the call to say that he has died and she is Queen. So begins the longest reign of any previous Monarch, and it’s still ongoing.
