A glimpse into the real love lives of the star-studded cast of the fourth season of the hit Netflix series, "The Crown," which includes Olivia Colman and Tobias Menzies.
Fans of Netflix's "The Crown" have been avidly watching the Royal Family's real-life dramas unfold on the screen, with Tobias Menzies and Olivia Colman taking on the roles of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip.
The fans find the private lives of the actors who take on the roles of the Royals just as fascinating, especially since the cast includes Emma Corrin, Helena Bonham-Carter, Charles Dance, and Josh O'Connor.
Actress Olivia Colman has already won an Oscar as Best Actress for portraying a queen, Queen Ann, in "The Favorite," and now she's tackling the role of an older Queen Elizabeth II in "The Crown."
Colman is happily married to actor and writer Ed Sinclair, her husband of nearly 20 years and father of her three children. The couple met when they were both starting out in their careers and have achieved success side by side.

Fans will remember Tobias Menzies from "Game of Thrones" and "Outlander," and now he is Prince Philip in "The Crown." The last anyone heard of Menzies' love life was in 2006 when he dated Kristin Scott Thomas. Since then, Menzies has kept his personal life under wraps.
