7 inspirational Queen Elizabeth quotes by Claire Foy, star of ‘The Crown’

Claire Foy is the stand-out star of ‘The Crown’. She brings such humanity and humor to Elizabeth and everything the queen says. To celebrate her success in delivering an award-winning performance, here are seven memorable quotes we just love.

“Would you like to know the principle, perhaps only advantage, of being the Chief Patron of the English Bowling Association? My fellow patrons are frequently too old or too ill to meet.” – A nod to the Queen’s good sense of humor.

“I am aware that I am surrounded by people who feel that they could do the job better, strong people with powerful characters, but for better or worse, the crown has landed on my head.” – A surreal moment from Season 1 of The Crown.

“One always has to accept one’s own part, I believe, in any mess.” – So true of all of us.

“It is not my job to govern. But it is my job to ensure proper governance.” – The nature of the job.

“The first 10 years of marriage are just an overture. That there’s often a crisis at 10 years, but then you work it out and settle in and it’s only then that it really gets into its stride.” – Season 2 focussed largely on the Queen’s marriage. This quote should do well to inspire longevity in your own marriage.

“That’s the thing about unhappiness. All it takes is for something worse to come along and you realise it was actually happiness after all.” – A quote to inspire us to look for the best in any situation.

“Look, I’m strong. You know that. And I can cope with the truth. I just demand to know the truth. It’s when people don’t tell me the truth that I can’t bear it.”
