Anyone well acquainted with Netflix will have heard of the headline-hitting drama, The Crown by now. It’s quite the talking point between fans of the Windsor-Mountbattens, thanks to its rare insider’s view into the Royal family and their seemingly scandalous lives (despite its arguable inaccuracies).
Now, gearing up for its fifth season, filming crews for the production have been spotted popping up across Yorkshire, with crews in both Wentworth Woodhouse and Bradford filming this weekend.
Completely transforming Bradford into a 1994 Moscow, photos show Russian signage placed on building fronts in Little Germany, alongside period prop cars reminiscent of the era.
It’s reported that the scenes will recreate the Queen and Prince Philip’s time in Russia – played by Imelda Staunton and Jonathan Pryce, respectively.
Crews have also been spotted setting up to shoot at Wentworth Woodhouse, Rotherham, however, little is known about which cast members could be visiting the village.
Rumours indicate that the stunning Yorkshire house could be standing in as a Russian palace, however, we’ll have to wait for the release of season 5 later this year to find out.
The new instalment to the series is currently slated for release this November, and will star Imelda Staunton as the Queen, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret, Dominic West as Prince Charles and Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana.
The new cast will replace the likes of Olivia Colman (the Queen), Helena Bonham Carter (Princess Margaret) and Gillian Anderson (Margaret Thatcher).
