    Here's What "The Crown" Cast Look Like Compared To The British Royal Family

    If you haven't seen The Crown, be warned of spoilers.

    When The Crown debuted last year, many people picked up on how similar the cast and characters look.

    And the look is still spot on in Season 2. For example...

    1. Princess Margaret (Vanessa Kirby)

    2. Jackie Kennedy (Jodi Balfour)

    3. Antony Armstrong-Jones (Matthew Goode)

    4. Prince Philip with a beard (Matt Smith)

    5. John F. Kennedy (Michael C. Hall)

    6. Michael Adeane, the Queen's private secretary (Will Keen)

    7. Lord Altrincham (John Heffernan)

    8. Prince Charles (Billy Jenkins)

    9. Martin Charteris (Harry Hadden-Paton)

    10. The Queen Mother (Victoria Hamilton)

    11. Harold Macmillan (Anton Lesser)

    12. Anthony Eden (Jeremy Northam)

    13. BONUS: The newspapers you see at start of Season 2, Episode 5 – the episode where Lord Altrincham is punched in the face – were based on real newspapers.

    14. And here's what the Queen's Speech looked like in 1957, in 2017, and in The Crown, which was set in 1957.
