Millions of fans have spent the last week binge-watching the fourth season of The Crown.

Given that there are 10 one-hour long episodes in this season, you’d be forgiven if you haven’t made your way through it yet.

Thankfully, a comedian has gone about summarising it all into a hilarious two-minute video.

Liz Hynes, a writer on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, shared a hilarious ‘recreation’ of this season of The Crown on her Twitter.

In the clip, Hynes wears a variety of different wigs and headwear to imitate various characters.

During the video, Hynes mainly mocks Helena Bonham Carter’s portrayal of Princess Margaret and Gillian Anderson’s Margaret Thatcher.

It begins with ‘Princess Margaret’, and proceeds with a perfect impression of Thatcher’s famous drawl.

Hynes jokes:

I’m very excited to get to work, slaughtering the poor.

Then she remarks: “Women are not suited to high office because… women be shopping.”

Princess Margaret appears, once again. Referencing a scene in the fourth season, she also impersonates Princess Margaret insulting Thatcher.

She jokes:

You’re an idiot and you’re poor and you’re ugly and I hate you.

It’s a pretty good impression if you ask us.

Hynes had previously recreated the third season too.

In that video, she once again mocks Bonham Carter’s portrayal of Princess Margaret.

It perfectly captures the unfiltered persona of the late royal.

Travel the World Like You’re in a Wes Anderson Movie

What makes a building or the cute telephone booth “Accidentally Wes Anderson”? According to Wally Royal, the creator of the immensely popular Instagram account in that name, “You know it when you see it: whether it’s the symmetrical lines, pastel hues, immaculate composition, or something idiosyncratic and beautiful that you can and cannot describe at once.” Luckily for all of us, Royal has curated a catalog of some of the best selections around the world. That catalog, Accidentally Wes Anderson, is the latest selection for our series on beautiful travel-related coffee table books, Just Booked.

The delightful book is organized by continent, and so one zooms from one cute pastel spot to another around the globe. Each picture is accompanied by some text telling a bit of the backstory as well as who submitted the pic. In North America, one can marvel at grand edifices like the Georgia Hotel in Santa Monica or Wilmington’s Grand Opera House (we’ll definitely be driving there soon!) or at interiors like the Pittsburgh Athletic Association’s indoor pool (where Mr. Rogers swam each day!). It also devotes plenty of space to smaller, easily overlooked wonders, such as a subway payphone in Toronto.

For those who want to wander afar via the aesthetic defined by the films of the celebrated director, inspiration can be found at the Hospital Naval in Buenos Aires, a pancake stand in Croatia, a branch of the BNP Paribas branch in Wroclaw, or the Najim al-Imam Religious School in Najal. Regardless of what might strike your fancy paging through, it’s undoubtedly a book sure to pique the interest of your guests.
