What The Costumes From 'The Crown' Looked Like In Real Life

On top of an A-list cast and stellar writing, one of the elements that has propelled Netflix's The Crown into award-winning territory is the costumes.

Setting the scene and adding an extra element of characterisation and context to those regal scandals, the costumes—from dresses to suits, tiaras and jewels—have remained impeccable throughout the three seasons.

And what's even more impressive is that a vast majority of those costumes are near-exact replicas of the ones worn by the real-life royals.

Created by costume designer Amy Roberts, several of the outfits worn by characters were designed and created to match real-life moments, down to the colour and the detail.

Below, the recreations side-by-side.
