Did Queen Elizabeth Just Prove She Watches The Crown?

  Did Queen Elizabeth Just Prove She Watches The Crown? A sneaky Season 2 reference made its way into her Christmas speech.In the fifth episode of the most recent season of The Crown, Foy’s version of The Queen gives a disastrous and stiff speech to workers at a car factory. At the time and as depicted in the episode, royal critic Lord Altrincham suggested one solution to the Queen’s communication difficulties was to televise her annual Christmas message—which she has done ever since. In this year’s speech, many suspect, the Queen paid direct homage to that Season 2 plot.

The Queen’s Wikipedia page is getting quite a workout these days.

The Crown, which chronicles the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, has turned millions of fans into Anglophiles and royal watchers. As a result, a record number of people are turning to her Wiki for more information. The Queen’s entry (which you can find here) was the third most read page on Wikipedia in 2017. It’s a bump from 2016, the year of The Crown‘s first season premiere, when she ranked in 13th place.

Of course, although the Netflix hitcovers a lot of ground, there’s still reams of information about the 91-year-old monarch’s life that isn’t included — or is dramatized, leading to curiosity about what’s fact and what’s fiction. Fellow Crown characters Princess Margaret and Prince Philip also ranked highly, at 37th and 44th place, respectively.

Elizabeth II ( Elizabeth Alexandra Mary; born 21 April 1926) is Queen of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms. Elizabeth was born in London as the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York, later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth , and she was educated privately at home.

In an annual report published by their editorial team, Wikipedia said the results “speak to the power that entertainment now holds over us.”

The two pages that topped Queen Elizabeth in 2017? First place went to the “Deaths in 2017” page, while second place was held by President Donald Trump.

A non-Crown royal made Wikipedia’s top five for 2017, too: The Queen’s soon-to-be granddaughter-in-law, Meghan Markle, nabbed the fifth spot. (Game of Thrones‘s seventh season took fourth, the spot between the two.)

People also wanted to learn more about Queen Elizabeth’s great-great grandmother, Queen Victoria, who is the subject of another ongoing series (on PBS), Victoria. Whenever a new episode of Victoria airs, Wikipedia saw a spike in both the pages for the show and Queen Victoria herself. Queen Victoria also ranked in 13th place in 2017 for overall views — the same place as Queen Elizabeth in 2016.
