Queen Elizabeth's wedding is given the Netflix treatment: The Crown sees Claire Foy portray Her Majesty in biggest role yet.

Starring Wolf Hall actress Claire Hoy and Doctor Who star Matt Smith, the new dramatisation was inspired by the famous play The Audience which saw Helen Mirren play the Queen

Millions watched the event live around the world but now Netflix is dramatising Queen Elizabeth II's wedding to Prince Philip in a new drama.

Starring Wolf Hall actress Claire Foy and Doctor Who star Matt Smith, the new dramatisation - called The Crown - was inspired by the famous play The Audience which saw Helen Mirren play the Queen.

Netflix says the 10-part series 'tells the inside story of two of the most famous addresses in the world - Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street - and the intrigues, love lives and machinations behind the great events that shaped the second half of the 20th century'.

Foy plays the Queen in the drama, and can be seen sporting a replica of her famous Norma Hartnell-designed wedding gown for the filming.

Rather than filming at Westminster Abbey, Ely Cathedral stood in for the famous landmark.

Foy stepped out of a gold horse-drawn carriage, clutching her wedding bouquet that had been recreated down to the finest detail for the 10-part drama.
