The Reason People Can't Stop Reading Queen Elizabeth's Wikipedia Page

  The Reason People Can't Stop Reading Queen Elizabeth's Wikipedia Page 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. 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.

Queen Elizabeth has been getting her bras from luxury London-based lingerie company Rigby & Peller since at least 1960. But as the BBC reports, the queen has fired the supplier after a new tell-all book exposed secrets of royal bra fittings.

Rigby & Peller has held the “royal warrant” for bra-fittings for the past six decades — but the contract was withdrawn after its owner June Kenton published her book, Storm in a D-Cup. Kenton herself had been the official “corsetiere” to Queen Elizabeth since the 1980s, often visiting Buckingham Palace for fittings and serving several members of the royal family, including Princess Diana and Princess Margaret.

Helena Bonham Carter to Play Princess Margaret in ‘The Crown’ Season 3

  Helena Bonham Carter to Play Princess Margaret in ‘The Crown’ Season 3 Helena Bonham Carter has been tapped to play Princess Margaret in Season 3 of Netflix’s “The Crown.” Netflix recently announced that Olivia Colman would be replacing Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth in Seasons 3 and 4 of the show. Vanessa Kirby played Margaret during the past two seasons of the drama. Series creator Peter Morgan has previously said he intended to replace key cast members in later seasons to better portray the main characters as they age.Seasons 3 and 4 have not been officially ordered, but early production is said to be underway.Bonham Carter can be seen next in “Ocean’s 8.” She is repped by WME and Conway van Gelder Grant.

The disgraced bra - fitter "wept" at the dismissal: "I am completely and utterly heartbroken." The former owner of a firm that made lingerie for Queen Elizabeth II wept Thursday as she expressed regret that the company lost its royal warrant after her memoir disclosed details of a meeting with the

The British Queen ’s bra supplier has been sacked after its founder June Kenton published a ‘ tell - all ’ book about royal fittings. She penned intimate details about measuring the half-dressed monarch in front of her corgis. Kenton’s company held the royal warrant for 57 years, but the

In her autobiography, which was published in March 2017, the 82-year-old wrote of her royal visits. She was reportedly told by the Palace six months ago that they “didn’t like the book.” Per the BBC:

“I’m very sad Buckingham Palace took exception to the story — it’s a kind and gentle story about what went on in my life,” she said. “I only ever said I went there, not what happened. I have never, ever spoken about what I do there with her, or the Queen Mother or Princess Margaret.”

However, the Daily Beast notes that Kenton actually shared “decades of secrets” in her book. She apparently described the “shabby basement entrance” she used to get into Buckingham Palace, fittings with Princess Diana — and the time she measured a half-dressed Queen Elizabeth in front of her corgis.

Trump retweets 'Fire and Fury' parody cover, slams Wolff, Bannon

  Trump retweets 'Fire and Fury' parody cover, slams Wolff, Bannon President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Friday evening to once again take shots at "Fire and Fury" author Michael Wolff -- and former White House strategist Steve Bannon. Trump retweeted a parody cover of the book that the Republican Party had tweeted earlier Friday, and used it as a springboard for his latest criticisms -- and calling Wolff “a total loser” and saying Bannon "cried when he got fired" and has been "dumped like a dog by almost everyone" since leaving the White House in August.

The Queen was reportedly not pleased when the royal bra fitter of 57 years moved forward with publishing a tell - all book filled with palace secrets. Royal warrants are given to businesses who have supplied services to the royal households (either the Queen , the Duke of Edinburgh, or Prince

Though they wouldn’t confirm why, it’s probably because longtime royal “corsetiere” June Kenton wrote a tell - all book called Storm in a D-Cup. Though Kenton insists she would never talk about a customer outside her dressing room, she did apparently detail many of the Queen ’s opinions on
