"And what's interesting is it happened either two weeks before or two weeks after England won the World Cup.

Helena Bonham Carter told THR that after she signed on for the series she was sent a massive document outlining each historical event the season will cover.

Season 4 Theories and Real Life History! In this video we take a deep dive and explain Season 3 of Netflix/Peter Morgan's " The Crown " reviewing it's connection to the real royal family and what it could mean for season 4.

In crafting their performances, the actors use the well-researched scripts and insights from Morgan, though ultimately they're putting across what Bonham Carter describes as the "essence" of each character rather than a rigidly historically accurate reenactment.

The Crown season three is available to stream on Netflix.
