Claire Foy and Matt Smith have captivated millions with their on-screen romance as Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. But do you know, even off-screen, the duo, at times, seemed closer than mere acting buddies?
So, are Claire and Matt in a relationship? Keep reading to find out.
Is Claire Foy In A Relationship With Matt Smith?
No, Claire Foy isn’t in a relationship with Matt Smith. As per Distractify, “Claire Foy appears to be single and ready to mingle with a few more challenging parts.”
But then again, the actress is known to fiercely protect her personal life with no public-facing social media profiles. Her last relationship info publicly known was with her ex-husband Stephen Campbell Moore.
So, even if she’s in a relationship, we won’t be hearing about it until Claire herself decides to go public.
Were Claire Foy And Matt Smith Even Dating?
As said before, Claire Foy doesn’t date and tell. So, there’s no way one can confirm if The Crown co-stars are dating. However, there are moments when the pair seemed comfortable and a little more than acting pals in off-work as well.
To look into their relationship, let’s go back to 2017 when Claire greeted Matt at LA airport with hugs. Later, that year, the duo was then spotted holding hands to cross the street after enjoying a lighthearted lunch on the South Bank, London. And the next year, the co-stars again made the headlines as they dined in Soho with Claire trying on her sunglasses for him. Their supper included several glasses of wine, and it looked friendly indeed.
Now the two are longtime co-stars of The Crown. Plus, they’ve even acted together as another married couple in the play Lungs.
In case you missed it, Lungs is a play about whether or not it’s a good idea to bring children into this increasingly uncertain world. Claire and Matt presented it at the Old Vic in London in June 2020 — well adapted with “socially distanced performances” in light of the coronavirus pandemic to allow them to remain two meters apart.
Recalling the “socially distant play,” Claire talked about the odd experience of rehearsing a play while a stage manager held a two-meter stick between them. Their characters who fought, made up, and slept together on stage, were now not even to get within hand-holding distance of each other.
But in her stage manager, Maria Gibbons’ defense, Claire explained that the stick was there to ensure that physical distance remains at all times by the lockdown rule. While Matt reminded her that the guidance for distancing had “just been reduced to one meter, so snap her stick in half!”
Now, coming to Claire and Matt’s first encounter. It was in 2014 on the set of Netflix hit The Crown. Claire — who had already landed her role as young Elizabeth II was in the room when Matt came in for his screen test. “She was very generous and there was something that worked about it,” Matt recalled.
They’ve remained friends ever since. And the remarkable chemistry they have on-screen now sparks just as well off-camera.
Fun Fact: In 2017, Claire Foy and Matt were giggling so much over the takes on The Crown h that neither could continue with the script.
Claire Foy Husband

Thereafter, the two went on to live in North London where they had the worst time of their life as Stephen was diagnosed with a benign tumor on his pituitary gland at the base of the brain. But that’s not all, things got even worst when Stephen had to have more surgery in 2017, “There are certain things that you make sure you’ve done before you go into surgery. “You write a letter. But it’s all very much on the off chance that something did go wrong because every part of you is saying that nothing will,” he explained.
Sadly, in 2018, Claire and Stephen filed for divorce.
