Royal pay gap? 'The Crown''s Queen Elizabeth paid less than her prince

Outrage The Crown's Claire Foy earned less than her male co-star Matt Smith it has been revealed Outrage The Crown's Claire Foy earned less than her male co-star Matt Smith it has been revealed

It seems that even a queen has to fight for equal pay.

The Crown's Claire Foy earned less than her male co-star Matt Smith during the first two seasons of the Netflix drama, it has been revealed.

However, I would like to state for the record that her getting paid less than Matt Smith is bullshit of the highest order.

At least Foy has moved up in stature, having won a Golden Globe and two Screen Actor's Guild Awards for her royal performance on "The Crown". (When Smith first started on "Doctor Who" nearly 10 years ago, he signed a three-year, £600,000 contract - just over $1 million in Canadian dollars.) "The Crown", one of the most expensive TV shows in history, had an approximate budget of US$7 million an episode.

According to Variety, on Tuesday, the show's producers said at the INTV Conference in Jerusalem that Foy, who won a Golden Globe for her work on the show previous year, made less money than her on-screen husband, actor Matt Smith. They did not give details of the gap.

"Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen", Left Bank creative director and exec producer Suzanne Mackie said at the INTV Conference in Jerusalem. A replacement for Smith's role as Prince Philip has not been announced yet.

It should be noted that Claire Foy will not get the chance to earn a fairer paycheck on The Crown since every role is being recast for the period drama's third season, which will begin filming in July and jump ahead to the 1970s. Representatives for Foy and Smith did not return requests for comment on Tuesday. The same report approximated that This Is Us breakout Chrissy Metz, like Foy, also made $40,000 per episode, but The Crown filmed 10 episodes its first season versus This Is Us's 18.

The ongoing disparity between men and women is reflected in annual lists published by Forbes magazine. Wahlberg later donated his salary to Time's Up, the campaign against workplace sexual misconduct.
