Imelda Staunton wears custom black suit with £12,200 white gold and pearl ring and £5,570 earrings as a nod to the late Queen’s favourite jewellery at The Crown season five premiere
Imelda Staunton showed off her classic sense of style as she attended The Crown season five world premiere at Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London on Tuesday.
The actress, 66, who plays the late Queen Elizabeth II in the series, wore a custom Huntsman Savile Row smart black tailored suit with an uneven black tie for the event.
Her ensemble was accentuated with Japanese TASAKI jewellery, with Imelda wearing a pair of £5,570 white gold earrings and a £12,200 white gold ring from the Balance Neo Diamonds Pave collection, featuring Akoya Pearls and diamonds. The jewellery is a nod to The Queen’s favourite jewellery – pearls.

Imelda’s stylist commented that she ‘put the look together as a nod to her role in the TV show and that is why we opted for the pearls and British tailoring’.
She opted for a crisp white shirt and carried a black Tyler Ellis clutch purse with her as she posed on the red carpet.
Imelda boosted her height by opting for a pair of black high-heeled shoes to match the rest of her attire.

The fifth season of The Crown follows Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal family through the 1990s, with Imelda playing the late monarch.
The veteran actress takes over the role of Her Majesty from Olivia Coleman for the fifth series on the historical blockbuster, which returns to screens this month.
Imelda has said playing the Queen in the upcoming series of The Crown was a ‘terrifying prospect’ but defended the Netflix drama for ‘treading a truthful line’.

Over the first four series of The Crown, the Netflix hit has become well known for bending facts to suit its narrative, and while some artistic license is inevitable, some critics have been outraged in its rewriting of history and relationships.
The latest series is likely to be scrutinised even more as its the first season since Elizabeth II died aged 96.
‘[It was a] terrifying prospect. But the production was so sublime, and these people are interesting and complicated,’ the British actress told The Binge Guide in Stellar Magazine.
‘And [creator] Peter [Morgan] gives you an imagined life behind the doors. But it’s not ridiculous.

‘We all try to tread a very truthful line, and the challenge of playing people who are, for all intents and purposes, constrained by their lives and their duty and their relationships, in some cases, is a great acting challenge. So to try to keep the standards up from the previous four seasons was a privilege’.
The final two series of The Crown will cover the Royal Family’s history throughout the 1990s and into 2003 and expects to include the Queen making a speech on her 40th anniversary of her accession in 1992, in which she called the year an ‘annus horriblis’.
She was referring to the breakdown of three of her children’s marriages; Prince Andrew, Princess Anne’s and Prince Charles’ divorce from Princess Diana.
The breakdown of Charles and Diana’s relationship will be a central part of the new series. The fourth series of The Crown, which streamed in November last year, told the story of the early romance between Charles and Diana.
The fifth season also introduces Olivia Williams, who plays Camilla Parker-Bowles, now the Queen Consort.
The Crown’s fifth series will be released on Netflix on November 9.
