Claire Foy has been spotted filming scenes for the fourth series of The Crown, reprising her role as Queen Elizabeth II.

Foy played the Queen in the show's first two seasons, having been replaced by Olivia Colman for the third season, which was recently released on Netflix.

While Colman will continue to play the monarch in the fourth season of The Crown, Foy has been spotted filming flashback scenes.
