Netflix's The Crown (opens in new tab) is a gorgeous and unfiltered look at the British royal family and their extremely dramatic lives, and everyone seems to operate under the assumption that Queen Elizabeth and her loved ones have zero interest in watching it.
"The reality for all of us is that we don't think they're going to watch it, really," Claire Foy told MarieClaire.com (opens in new tab) during Season One. "The chances are very, very slim. You can't really think about it, because it would make your job very difficult."
The thing is, it seems like the royals are watching. Well, maybe not The Queen, but Princess Eugenie is in. "It is filmed beautifully," she said during a recent interview (opens in new tab). "The music is wonderful, the story is beautiful. You feel very proud to watch it. I can't speak for everyone, but that's how I felt when I watched it."
While parsing through this sentence, it's hard to know whether "I can't speak for everyone" means Eugenie can't speak for everyone who's *watched* The Crown (meaning, more than one royal has), or she can't speak as to whether anyone else has even tuned in. Either way, the possibility that the royals are having Crown viewing parties is too wonderful to handle.
