The Crown is a top Netflix show and the Royal Family being the characters makes it fun to see who your Zodiac sign lines up with.
Anyone who has watched even an episode of The Crown on Netflix knows very well that one of the secrets to its success is the sheer variety of characters that appear. While obviously, it focuses on the royal family and their foibles, every now and again an outsider comes in to shake things up.
These men and women and their interactions make for undeniably engaging viewing, and it’s a rather fun thought experiment to think about them and their personalities through the lens of the zodiac in order to establish yet another set of connections between the viewer and the characters.
Camilla is, of course, the woman that Prince Charles loves, despite the fact that he knows that their romance would cause both of them quite a lot of trouble. For her part, Camilla seems like a woman who knows what she wants and is determined to get it.
Like most Aries, she has a bit of a stubborn streak to her, and she can also be a bit tactless, as when she has that very awkward lunch with the flummoxed Diana.
Taurus- Prince Philip
From the moment that he appears in the first season, Prince Philip establishes that he’s a bit of an unpleasant person. That’s not surprising, though, considering his troubled upbringing and the grief that he’s endured throughout his life.
Like many other members of his family, he is stubborn and slow to change, which makes him very much in the spirit of the Taurus, an earth sign known for being more than a little set in its ways.
Gemini- Anthony Eden
Poor Anthony Eden has the grave misfortune to be the prime minister during one of the most tumultuous and declining times in the history of the UK. Equally unfortunately, he doesn’t really have the type of temperament that would allow him to handle the crises affecting the nation and the Empire with any kind of grace or aplomb.
As a Gemini, he tends to act on impulse, and this ends up getting him, and the country that he leads, into quite a lot of trouble.
Cancer- Anthony Armstrong-Jones
Anthony Armstrong-Jones is one of the men who has the fortune (or misfortune) of falling in love with the mercurial and sometimes rather waspish Princess Margaret.
Despite the volatility of their relationship, it’s very clear that Anthony loves her deeply and passionately, as Cancers are prone to do, even if she isn’t always able to see it and even if he isn’t always the best at showing it to her in a way that she can easily understand and appreciate.
Leo- Winston Churchill
John Lithgow is a triumph in any role that he appears, and his turn as Winston Churchill is no exception. Grumpy as he can be, there’s no denying that Sir Winston has an indomitable personality that allows him to pretty much overwhelm anyone that he comes into contact with.
It’s what made him a great prime minister during the war, but it ends up handicapping him in the postwar era. Like a Leo, he sometimes lacks tact just when he needs it the most.
Virgo- Princess Anne
One of the standout characters in the last couple of seasons of the show has been Princess Anne, who’s shown that she has quite a bit of steel in her spine. She’s something of an amalgam of both her parents, though she seems to have a closer relationship with her father.
She also has a lot of Virgo traits, including the ability to see straight to the heart of the matter and an unwillingness to let her life be guided exclusively by emotion.
Elizabeth is, of course, the most important person in the entire series. As the Queen, she has quite a lot sitting on her shoulders, and the maintenance of the Crown as an institution is more her responsibility than almost anyone else.
Fortunately, she seems to possess many of the qualities associated with the Libra, which means that she can often hold the various aspects of her personality, the personal and the public, in a form of balance that allows her to be a largely successful ruler.
Scorpio- Lord Mountbatten
Charles Dance is one of the best additions to the third season cast, in which he plays Lord Mountbatten, a member of the Royal Family (an uncle of Philip).
Though he can at times be quite genial, he has something of the Scorpio in him as well, which means that there is often an edge to his personality, which can be most clearly seen when he almost leads a coup against the government. He’s the type of person that one doesn’t want to cross.
Margaret is something of a tragic heroine in this story, particularly since so many of her relationships end up failing for one reason or another. In many ways, she’s a textbook Sagittarius, prone to being impulsive and not thinking through the consequences of her actions as much as she should.
At the same time, she is an incredibly charismatic and magnetic personality, so it’s no surprise that many people can’t help but fall under her powerful spell.
Capricorn- Margaret Thatcher
Introduced in the fourth season, Margaret Thatcher is played by the divine Gillian Anderson, who ably captures the woman who would go on to be known as the Iron Lady.
Though she does have her moments of vulnerability, for the most part, Thatcher is a Capricorn to the bone, with a focus on her goals and what she wants to accomplish as the head of government. She’s not the type to let anyone stand in the way, whether a monarch or members of her own Cabinet.
There’s something rather ethereal and otherworldly about Lady Diana, and this is true from the moment that she meets Charles in costume. There’s a certain innocence about her that is in marked contrast to the members of the family that she ends up joining.
Like almost every other Aquarius out there, she remains something of an enigma, and it’s sometimes difficult to determine exactly what it is that she’s really thinking.
Pisces- Prince Charles
Like his aunt Margaret, Charles is at times a bit of a tragic hero, a young man caught up in the toils of monarchy and often unable to establish himself as an individual in control of his own destiny.
At the same time, he can also be very much a Pisces, in that he tends to withdraw into a world of fantasy, trying to live in a world of his own fantasy rather than the one of reality. Needless to say, this gets him into a bit of trouble with the more sensible members of his family.
