A producer disclosed last week that Foy, who starred as Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, was paid less than Smith, who played Prince Philip, because Smith was better known.

Since news of "The Crown" pay gap broke, a petition has urged Smith to donate part of his salary to the Time's Up campaign, which is campaigning against sexism and sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry. The company said it was "absolutely united with the fight for fair pay, free of gender bias" and was keen to speak to Time's Up. Foy and Smith are being replaced by older performers in the next season.

Duterte backs anti-political dynasty proposal but uncertain if public will like itMANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte said on Tuesday he agrees with the proposed abolition of political dynasties, although he doubts whether the idea would sit well with the public. The switch to a federal system was one of the key planks of Duterte's election campaign, along with his deadly war on drugs. Early this month, a 20-member consultative committee created by Duterte to review the 1987 Constitution voted to regulate political dynasties in the draft federal charter. The current charter prohibits political dynasties but lawmakers have repeatedly failed to pass an enabling law for the ban. In a press conference also on Tuesday, Reynato Puno, chairman of the consultative committee, said the proposed anti-political dynasty provision is a “sine qua non (without which, nothing)” requirement of the shift to a federal system.
