Season 3 Of The Crown Will Have One Continuity Error

Netflix's The Crown

To say we were captivated by the magic and poise from season one and two of the hit Netflix show The Crown is an understatement and we're fairly sure season three will not disappoint.

Oscar-winning Actor, Olivia Coleman will take over the role of Queen Elizabeth II and has recently confirmed reports that the show will have a significant continuity error.

And here it is...

The Queen's eye colour will not be correct  - Olivia Coleman has Brown eyes while Queen Elizabeth and Coleman's predecessor Clare Foy both have blue eyes.

The reason for the inconsistency between Olivia and Claire Foy is because of "eyelids".

Confirming The Crown director's recent comments, Olivia told US Vogue that her "very strong eyelids" meant she wasn't able to wear coloured contact lenses during filming, leaving her with the wrong eye colour.

Of course, both the real-life Queen and Claire Foy have blue eyes, whereas Olivia's are brown. Explaining the sheer battle of trying to put the blue contacts in, the actress revealed: "It was basically like an exorcism: 'Just hold me down and thrust it in!'"

Director Ben Caron recently hinted at Olivia's on-set exorcism, admitting that once the lenses were actually in, they appeared to have "taken all of her acting ability and put it in a safe and locked it away."

It's a funny reason but, there you have it.

Helena Bonham Carter will also be playing an older version of Princess Margaret from Vanessa Kirby.

While Prince Philip will be played by Game of Thrones star Tobias Menzies.

The third instalment will cover the periods between 1964 to 1977 hence the change in actors.

Season 3 of The Crown returns to Netflix on Sunday the 17th of November.

Filming began last summer and we've been anticipating this announcement ever since.

Anyone else counting down the days?
