Olivia Colman also played the Queen for two seasons of “The Crown.”
Colman said it was one of her most difficult roles because “behind closed doors, we don’t know what she’s like,” and that she was “quite pleased” to move on after playing the monarch for two seasons, according to Radio Times.
Colman embodied the Queen’s stoic salute on horseback.
The Queen saluted the Household Guards regiments during the annual Trooping of the Colour ceremony in London, which marks her official birthday, in 1985.

The couple also named their daughter, Lilibet, after the Queen.
