With lives spent in the public eye, the royal family members’ private moments remain heavily guarded, which may be why Netflix’s new series, The Crown, chronicling the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, has captured our imagination. In it, the curtain is pulled back to reveal domestic disputes, health problems, insecurities, implied affairs, and peeks at a tiny Prince Charles learning how to fish and play soccer. Or, in other words, it reveals the royals as people just like us.

To celebrate the show’s premiere in London, Jared Harris and Vanessa Kirby, who play King George VI and Princess Margaret, respectively, discussed how they got into character for their roles, how the royals remain a mystery to the public, and how Princess Margaret’s forgotten love affair with Group Captain Peter Townsend may be one of the most tragic love stories of the century.

After a stint on Broadway and in Hollywood, Vanessa Kirby is back on home ground with her latest drama The Crown (source)

Words: Laura Silverman

“I’ve always been pretty indifferent towards the royal family,” Vanessa Kirby cheerfully admits. “I went on a school trip once to Buckingham Palace and all I can remember is that it was really boring. Before filming The Crown, I couldn’t care less about the royal family. But now… I’m obsessed.”

After this Friday, the 28-year-old won’t be the only one. That’s when Netflix debuts the much-anticipated first 10 episodes of its most expensive drama to date (with a rumoured £100 milllion budget), which imagines life behind the gilded doors of Buckingham Palace. Commissioned for six series, The Crown follows the life of Queen Elizabeth from 1947 to present day and is written by Peter Morgan who, having already penned the 2006 biopic The Queen and the 2013 play The Audience, knows a thing or two about imagining royal life.

With Wolf Hall’s Claire Foy as the monarch and Doctor Who’s Matt Smith as Prince Phillip, Kirby plays Princess Margaret, the Queen’s younger sister, from the age of 18 to 25. “I saw Margaret as this rebel, and thought, ‘That’s so me!’” Kirby says of her character, who prior to her death in 2002 gained notoriety for her tumultuous love life – she called off her controversial engagement to the divorced Group Captain Peter Townsend in 1955 – and penchant for partying. Kirby’s performance is an emotional and compelling one. Her scenes with Foy are particularly tense, showcasing her on-screen presence while portraying Margaret’s early life as something of a tragedy as she realizes she will lose the love of her life.

Alternating between confident and self-deprecating, Kirby has an endearing way of chattering on. She’s witty and expressive, peppering her conversation with enthusiastic exclamations (“Oh my God!” and “Yeah!”) while talking about the latest books she’s enjoyed or her attempts to meditate every day.

Perhaps it’s such passion and self-awareness that explains Kirby’s rise over the past seven years. After being rejected by a drama school in Bristol, Kirby took a gap year in South Africa then studied English at Exeter, where she was awarded a First. She turned down a place at LAMDA to join the Octagon Theatre in Bolton and hasn’t stopped working on stage since. She has also dabbled in Hollywood movies (most recently in Me Before You with Emilia Clarke).

The Crown, an epic series telling the tale of Elizabeth II’s rise to the throne, is soon to be released on Netflix. We caught up with director Stephen Daldry, writer Peter Morgan, and actors Claire Foy, Matt Smith, Vanessa Kirby and Jared Harris at the series’ press conference in London. They talked about the changing nature of TV, what it took to honestly portray such famous figures and the pros and cons of the ornate costumes in the show.  

Vanessa, would you say that a lot of what the Royal Family have to do is kind of a performance? You’re playing two characters really, the public persona and the one underneath – is that how it felt?

Vanessa Kirby: Yes it did feel like that, because I think publicly all you get to see is the presentation of the public image of who these people are and it was amazing as an actor, but also as a person, getting behind those presentational figures and seeing who these human beings are and imagining they actually have real lives. You think about this 25-year-old who has lost her father, and for Margaret’s sister with the love of her life. It gave me a lot of empathy and actually opened my mind to our perception of people generally in the public, and about what we don’t know.
