Turns out The Crown producers cut a sex scene between the Queen and Prince Philip

"I don't think anyone wants to see the Queen having sex."

Turns out that The Crown producers filmed - and later cut - a sex scene between the Queen and Prince Philip.

The scene, which was filmed during the show's first season, depicted the monarch and her husband sharing an intimate moment while on tour in South Africa.

However, it was eventually cut because apparently the audience didn't need to see Queen Elizabeth having sex.

Vanessa Kirby, who played Princess Margaret in the first two series of the Netflix show, told Dolly Alderton's Love Stories podcast of the producers' decision to remove the scene.

"There was a sex scene between Elizabeth and Philip in the first season," she said.

"I think they were in South Africa filming, and they were like, 'I just don’t think anyone wants to see the Queen having sex."

Kirby added that another scene between her character and Anthony Armstrong-Jones was also cut from the show - because it didn't sit with the tone of the rest of the series.

"We had long discussions about what it should be, and it just became clear that to titillate was not the aim," she said.

The Crown returns to Netflix no Sunday, November 17 for its third season, starring Olivia Colman, Tobias Menzies, and Helena Bonham Carter.
