Episode 6: Ruritania The Crown: The Official Podcast

    • After Shows

Two years into his premiership, Tony Blair continues to ride a wave of unprecedented popularity. This unnerves the Queen who worries that the Royal Family’s own popularity does not match up. When she commissions a wide-ranging poll, the results are sobering, leading the Queen to reflect on what she - and the Palace - could be doing differently. After Blair’s reputation is further cemented by his successful humanitarian intervention in Kosovo, the Queen asks him what he would do to modernise the monarchy. His ideas and suggestions force the Queen to confront just how much change she would be prepared to accept.

Edith Bowman speaks with co-writer Daniel Marc Janes and director Erik Richter-Strand and The Crown’s long standing Props Master Owen Harrison. Actor Bertie Carvel, speaks about the attraction of playing Prime Minister Tony Blair.

The Crown: The Official Podcast is produced by Netflix and Sony Music Entertainment, in association with Left Bank Pictures.
