Binge-watchers of the show will be disheartened to learn that Her Majesty was not on hand to present the honour - a not-so-coincidental move by the Windsor clan in our opinion.
Instead, Princess Anne took on the duty which was sure to prove just as daunting for Colman with Erin Doherty playing the royal in the forthcoming season.
In the next installment of the drama series, Colman will step into Claire Foy's shiny block heels as Queen Elizabeth II while Tobias Menzes steals Matt Smith's crown in the role of Prince Philip.
The upcoming season will see Buckingham Palace ride the turbulent political times of the '60s and '70s, as the country "falls apart" in the words of Colman.
Ahead of her 1977 Silver Jubilee, the Queen fears losing popularity as footage of the miners' strikes and famous aftermath of the Aberfan disaster of 1966 unfolds in the new season trailer.
Throw in the appointment of Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson and The Firm are quaking beneath all the pomp and pageantry.
Perhaps the royals should have waited to tune in before waxing lyrical about Colman...
The Crown Season 3 premieres Sunday, November 17 on Netflix.
