Series three of The Crown commenced filming in July this year, covering Queen Elizabeth II's rule across the 1960s and 1970s.

And the critically acclaimed series is set to recreate one of the most notable and heartbreaking moments of the monarch's reign, the Aberfan disaster which claimed the lives of 144 victims in 1966.

Filming got underway in Cwmaman, Wales last week, with the latest series of the drama exploring the Queen's response to the tragedy in the Welsh mining village.

An entire generation was almost wiped out when 150,000 tonnes of coal waste slid down the hillside before engulfing Pantglas Junior School on October 21 1966. The disaster killed 116 children and 28 adults.
