Watch: Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II
“I don’t go to all the incredible things in London because they’re there. And it’s the same with the royal family - they were always there so you don’t think about them. I think for people outside of the UK, they’re a much bigger deal. But I could be wrong about that!”
Earlier this month, the world grew fanatically invested in the British royal family gossip after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made a series of allegations about the treatment from the royal family institution towards them and their son, Archie, in an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Most alarmingly, Meghan claimed that the palace was allegedly “worried” about the colour of Archie’s skin.
Even then, it seems that Australians are not all in support of becoming part of the republic.

The Crown is a Netflix series about the life and story of Queen Elizabeth II. True to the name, it stars a cast of acting royalty, from Olivia Colman, Helena Bonham Carter and Tobias Menzies, to name a few.
The critically-acclaimed show weaves together real-life moments in history - like a young Queen Elizabeth (Claire Foy) dancing with Ghanian President Kwame Nkrumah in 1961 - and fictional events to create a phenomenal royal experience.
