Thanks Lizzie: 10 shows to stream this Queen’s Birthday long weekend
There's only one thing better than a long weekend: A long weekend spent binge-watching great TV.
Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II was born on 21 April, so it makes complete sense that the colony of Australia celebrates two months later in June. You won't hear anybody complaining though, because that extra day off work means more time for catching up on some epic TV.
This Queen's Birthday long weekend, why not bring a bit of royalty to your streaming choices? Here are finder's top 10 picks for Royal viewing this long weekend.
1. The Crown
What better way to celebrate Queen Lizzie than to stream a dramatised tale of her life? The Crown is one of the most expensive original productions Netflix has ever made, and even has the stamp of approval from Her Majesty herself when she confirmed that she not only watched the show, but enjoyed it despite some things being a little over-dramatic for her.
2. Game of Thrones
Is it a coincidence that Australia celebrates the Queen's Birthday in Winter? Probably, but it does let us make a tenuous link between Her Majesty and everyone's favourite dragon show, Game of Thrones. Season seven is just weeks away, but you can binge watch every episode on the Pop or Drama pack of the new Foxtel Now service.
4. The Last Kingdom
5. The Tudors
6. Marco Polo
8. Kong: King of the Apes
9. Almost Royal
10. Downton Abbey
