QUEEN ELIZABETH II (PLAYED BY CLAIRE FOY)
This delightful scene from Season 2 is a recreation of the Queen's first televised Christmas speech. We love the attention to detail —down to the sheet of paper peeping off her desk.
PRINCE PHILIP (PLAYED BY MATT SMITH)
They could not look more alike.
PRINCESS MARGARET (PLAYED BY VANESSA KIRBY)
Princess Margaret is back for Season 2 and sassier than ever. She's also more fashionable than ever — both on The Crown, and at the time this photo was taken.
JFK AND JACKIE KENNEDY (PLAYED BY MICHAEL C. HALL AND JODI BALFOUR)
We are so excited to see this moment come to life in The Crown Season 2. Not only are the costume recreations flawless, Michael C. Hall looks spectacular as JFK.
ANTONY ARMSTRONG-JONES (PLAYED BY MATTHEW GOODE)
The casting choice is genius — they look so alike. Expect The Crown's upcoming season to dive into their relationship after the fallout from her break-up with Peter Townsend.
WINSTON CHURCHILL (PLAYED BY JOHN LITHGOW)
The similarity is truly impressive.
KING GEORGE THE VI (PLAYED BY JARED HARRIS)
Sadly, King George won't feature in The Crown's second season, but this split showcases the costume design team's extreme attention to detail — down to every single colour on his blazer.
PRINCE CHARLES (PLAYED BY BILLY JENKINS)
Mini Prince Charles will continue to be a main character in Season 2, bless his heart! Here is looking particularly spiffy while getting to know his class mates at Gordonstoun school.
WALLIS SIMPSON AND THE DUKE OF WINDSOR (PLAYED BY LIA WILLIAMS AND ALEX JENNINGS)
This controversial couple were a focal point of The Crown during the show's first season, and will hopefully make a triumphant return on 8 December. More importantly, Lia Williams looks so much like Wallis Simpson that we can hardly tell the difference between them.
ANTHONY EDEN (PLAYED BY JEREMY NORTHAM)
Anthony Eden was Churchill's deputy before succeeding him in 1955. Much like his on-screen counterpart, his moustache game is impeccable.
ELIZABETH, THE QUEEN MOTHER (PLAYED BY VICTORIA HAMILTON)
Queen Elizabeth's mother, also confusingly named Elizabeth, looks just like her real-life counterpart — down to the three strands of pearls adorning her neck.
PETER TOWNSEND (PLAYED BY BEN MILES)
It's unclear whether Margaret's boyfriend Peter Townsend will feature in The Crown's second season, but Ben Miles nailed the look.
THE QUEEN'S CORGIS
Each one more adorable than the last.
CECIL BEATON (PLAYED BY MARK TANDY)
Finally, iconic photographer Cecil Beaton will also make an appearance in The Crown Season 2. Here, he's seen taking a photo of Prince Philip.
