Despite having different prime ministers and going through controversies in the first season, the queen still managed to keep her monarchy together and her government in check.

"The Crown" season 2 debuts on Netflix on Friday, Dec. 8.

Elizabeth and Philip are seen looking joyful in preview shots for the series and cuddling up with each other as they await the arrival of their fourth child Prince Edward - who grew up to have the closest bond with his mother out of all the children. Michele Clapton, a three-time Emmy victor for her work on "Game of Thrones", told WWD previous year that she was given a "decent" budget for the first season and worked to recreate the more famous, public moments in the Queen's life, which are highly recognizable, and took creative liberties when it came to the unknown personal life scenes.

She states: "The rumours still haven't gone away".

Philip is still his usual loose cannon, with the Queen being told "you married a wild spirit, trying to tame him is no use" upon images of him watching exotic dancers perform for him on a beach emerge from the Melbourne Olympics aftershow.

The second season picks up on the heels of season one's dramatic finish, where the Queen's prevention of Princess Margaret's marriage to Peter Townsend led the public to turn on her. Michael C Hall and Jodi Balfour also appear after being recruited to portray President John F Kennedy and First Lady Jackie Kennedy. That said, she noted, "The world's changing faster than anyone can catch up with". There is no letup.
