There are plenty of movies and TV shows to watch if you like The Crown, and we’ve compiled the best ones right here for you, in this list!

TV shows similar to The Crown often focus on historical events with either an accurate or fictitious take, and if you’re looking for more royal intrigue, The Tudors is sure to fill the void.

And if you think there aren’t also some good movies like The Crown, then think again, because we’ve found quite a few that are sure to tickle the fancies of even the hardest-to-please fans.
