It has been announced that Olivia Colman will be playing Queen Elizabeth II, taking over the role from Claire Foy.

It is the latest example of the gender pay gap in the industry.

At a panel discussion today at the INTV Conference in Jerusalem, it was revealed that Claire Foy, who played Queen Elizabeth in the Netflix hit series The Crown, was paid less than Matt Smith, who was cast in the role of Prince Philip.

"Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen", Mackie told the audience following her pay disparity confession.

According to Mackie, the difference in Claire and Matt's pay was due to Matt's star power before appearing on The Crown.

But considering Foy's Queen Elizabeth is the anchor and driving force of the show, it's baffling that Smith would still be paid more than her in the second season.

She earned a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actor's Guild Awards for best actress following the first season.

They did not reveal either salary - Foy's was put at $40,000 an episode by Variety a year ago - but told a panel event in Jerusalem that Smith's 2010-2013 starring role on the BBC's "Doctor Who" had been the decisive factor.

The producers said they've fixed it going into the future, and from now on no one will earn more than the actress playing the queen.

. Representatives for Foy and Smith did not return requests for comment on Tuesday.

Foy made $40,000 per episode, Variety revealed previous year.

"The Crown" is one of the most expensive television shows ever produced, costing a reported $130 million for the first season.

It's kind of like the time Mark Wahlberg was paid $1.5million United States for reshoots for the movie All The Money In The World, while his co-star, Michelle Williams, was only paid $1000 Dollars per reshoot.
