So to help out, Express.co.uk exclusively spoke to Babbel language expert Ted Mentele to devise the ultimate guide to some of the show’s royal jargon.

An expert’s guide to The Crown’s royal jargon:

Throughout the three series, language has played an important part in The Crown.

Whether it’s how Queen Elizabeth II (played by Olivia Colman) addresses the country or the title roles given to those inside the institution, the terms used are very important in concreting everyone’s place in the world’s most famous family.

In addition to this, the language used has become part of English heritage.

However, language expert Mentele explains that while the Royal Family tend to keep with its traditions, they have had to “move with the times”.

Mentele, who is Editor in Didactics at leading language app Babbel, said: “We can put the fact that royal phraseology hasn’t changed much over the years down to royal protocols and traditions.

“The institution has been going, fairly unchanged for the most part, for hundreds of years and this includes the language.

“Of course, some things have had to move with the times - no other royals have had to deal with such things as social media, for example.

“I think this is part of the reason we’re so interested in it. While the world evolves around them, they manage to keep things the same. It’s fascinating.”
