We've been glued to The Crown since it first began airing in 2016 and as the series draws to a close, a premiere event was held at The Royal Festival Hall. The event saw stars from the current series like Elizabeth Debecki, who plays Princess Diana, and Imelda Staunton, who plays the Queen, in attendance.

However, it also drew stars from previous series including Emma Corrin, who won plaudits for their portrayal of the late Princess of Wales in the fourth series, alongside Gillian Anderson who played Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher opposite Olivia Colman. Meg Bellamy, Ed McVey and Luther Ford, who play Princess Kate, Prince William and Prince Harry respectively, also arrived in their finest.
