There's no one more qualified to wax on about British tea etiquette than the Queen and Prince Philip, but they're currently on summer holiday at Balmoral in Scotland, so The Crown stars Claire Foy and Matt Smith, who play the monarch and her husband on the Netflix series, will have to do instead.

In a newly released video, the on-screen duo weighs in on the big issues: tea bag or loose leaf? English Breakfast or Earl Grey? And the ever controversial order of operations—do you put the tea in first? Or the milk?

Watch the pair detail their perfect cups of tea below:

Season 2 of The Crown premieres on Netflix December 8.
