List RulesVote up the films and series you know other fans of The Crown will love. Please don’t vote if you haven’t seen The Crown.

The Crown is a brilliant series that looks at behind the scenes goings on within the reign of the longest-serving monarch in history, Queen Elizabeth II that garnered the love and affection of hordes of fans, but if you’ve finished watching the series, there’s no need for despair. 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 like 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. This show followed the rather chaotic reign of one of QEII's ancestors, King Henry VIII who challenged the Catholic Church by creating his own Church of England. 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. Take Elizabeth, for instance. This movie dives into the life of the Queen's namesake, the first Queen to be named Elizabeth, who was known as the Virgin Queen, and is a great choice for any The Crown fans.

But you don’t have to take our word for it - some of The Crown’s biggest fans have chimed in and cast their votes for the best movies and TV shows like The Crown, and once you’ve watched, you can cast your votes too!

So, what are your favorite The Crown-esque movies and TV shows? Vote the best projects up to the top of this list.
