Imelda Staunton (66) appeared in a black pantsuit at the premiere of season five of 'The Crown' at the Theater Royal Drury Lane in London on Tuesday. A tailored, elegant outfit in honor of her role: the actress portrays Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022) in the new episodes of the Netflix series.
Staunton's dark suit from Huntsman Savile Row was accompanied by a white blouse and black tie. Her accessories are said to have been a nod to the Queen's favorite jewelry, who died on September 8, according to the Daily Mail. The actress sported diamond and pearl earrings and a matching ring.
Before the release of the new season, Staunton promised that she would "do her utmost to maintain the very high standard" set by her predecessors Olivia Colman (48) and Claire Foy (38). She hopes she looks "calm, composed and competent" while her "stomach is doing somersaults". In the Netflix series, the cast changes every two seasons.
Also at the premiere of the fifth season of "The Crown", which can be seen from November 9, were Elizabeth Debicki (32), Dominic West (53) and Gillian Anderson (54). Debicki, who plays Princess Diana (1961-1997) in the new episodes, walked the red carpet in a black Dior sleeveless dress. Dominic West, seen in the role of Prince Charles (73), appeared in a black suit. Gillian Anderson, who portrayed Margaret Thatcher (1925-2013) in season four, wore a black sleeveless dress with jewel embellishments.
