Everyone thinks the Queen subtly referenced The Crown in her speech

The Queen's speech is traditional at Christmas - but some people think this year's might message might contain an unorthodox hidden reference.

This year marked 60 years since the Queen's speech was first broadcast to the nation via a television set.

In her address to the country, she chose to commemorate that landmark:

Sixty years ago today, a young woman spoke about the speed of technological change.

She presented the first televised broadcast of its kind. She described the moment as a landmark.

Six decades on the presenter has evolved somewhat as has the technology she described.

It would make perfect sense for her to commemorate the decades since her first Christmas speech was bordcast.

However, people are convinced that she was making a reference to the Netflix series based on her life, The Crown.

This is mostly because the 1957 speech is a prominent part of the second season of The Crown.

Twitter was soon a flood with people claiming she was subtly talking about the show.

There is a chance that Her Royal Highness has been watching The Crown. Back in May, The Express claimed that the Queen had been watching the series after being recommended it by her son and daughter-in-law, the Earl and Countess of Wessex.

To add to that Vanessa Kirby, who plays Princess Margaret in the show, told reporters at a press conference in November that they had heard rumours that the Queen had been watching.

We did hear from someone that the Queen had watched it – which is so scary.

The thought of her sitting up with her crumpets in bed... I’ve got this vision of it. But [they say] Philip hasn’t, which I also love.

Netflix also released their own version of the Queen's speech on Christmas Day which involved characters from various Netflix shows watching the speech from season two delivered by actress Claire Foy.
