The Crown Season 1 Episode 5 “Smoke and Mirrors” :- Watch The Crown Season 1 Episode 5 “Smoke and Mirrors” on Youtube on Fire, Well, ladies and gentlemen, we finally get our first glimpse of an actual crown — no, George’s Christmas paper/felt creation does not count — as well as an officially minted Queen Elizabeth II. But in telling the story of her coronation, the episode also delves into what the titular Crown means to another royal, her Uncle David. It’s also notable because while we do gain a Queen in Elizabeth, we lose one in Mary, her grandmother. The episode kicks off on a childhood memory of King George asking young Elizabeth to help him practice for his own coronation 17 years earlier, with Jared Harris skillfully milking the scene’s sweetness for all it’s worth. We then cut to Elizabeth practicing in front of her own kids, as she tries on the crown, which clocks in at 5 pounds, though symbolically its weight is immeasurable. It’s a nice moment that once again underscores the bond she’d had with her father. As for the other man in Elizabeth’s life, Philip, the soon-to-be-crowned Queen decides that she wants her husband to be chairman of her coronation committee. After some bickering before and at the ballet, she agrees to grant him carte blanche in terms of planning the ceremony, but she does ask him to reign in some of his wilder ideas. However, Philip’s ideas might not be so bad, as we see during Mary’s funeral, which Philip notes is exactly like her fathers. Here Philip states.
