12 September, 2022

As the U.K. braces for massive crowds ahead of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, many people have chosen to honor her by watching her life story at home.

Interest in “The Crown,” Netflix Inc.’s scripted account of the queen’s reign, began climbing almost as soon as her death was announced, before taking off even further in the days that followed, according to third-party data from Parrot Analytics.

Since then, interest in “The Crown” continued soaring from there, with demand equating to 58.6 times that of an average show as of Sept. 9, up from 40.7 times as of Sept. 8. The show was the 10th most in-demand show across all platforms on Sept. 9, according to Parrot data.
