The Crown began streaming on Netflix in 2016 starring Claire Foy and Matt Smith

The Crown dropped its final six episodes today and fans took to social media to discuss the season finale.

The last scene saw all three actresses who portrayed Queen Elizabeth II reunite to help Imelda Staunton's character decide whether or not to step down as the monarch.

This meant Claire Foy, who played the Queen in the first and second seasons, and Olivia Coleman who played the late monarch in seasons three and four, returned to the Netflix hit show.

One royal fan posted on Twitter: "In tears. What an ending. #TheCrown."

Another added: "#TheCrown has its rightful epic ending. It indeed paid a tribute to the life and legacy of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II."

"The ending of The Crown gave me goosebumps," one royal watcher said.

A social media user commented: "Not the salute, pipes, coffin, and Olivia and Claire at the end!

Someone else wrote: "Today is the day The Crown comes to an end. An epic conclusion to an exceptional show."

Another posted: "The end of The Crown, WOW!! So perfectly done!"

One fan added: "I'm still processing the end of #TheCrown but one thing I know for sure is that this has been one of the best shows (if not the best) Netflix ever made (despite its flaws), and it will probably hold on to that title for a long time."

However, not all fans were pleased with the ending which involved all three actresses who played the late Queen return.

One said: "I would have loved to see the Queen's father and Margaret at the end but it was so beautifully done. #TheCrown."

Another wrote: "I love The Crown so much but the perfect ending would’ve been finishing her story."

"The ending of The Crown is so weird," someone posted. Similarly, a social media user added: "#TheCrown the way I felt nothing at the end."
