Producers point to Smith's starring role in "Doctor Who" - he played the sci-fi hit's Eleventh Doctor from 2010 to 2014 - as the reason for him making more than Foy.
Foy, 33, was already making a name for herself in British costume drama, with roles in "Upstairs Downstairs" and "Wolf Hall", when she was tapped to play the queen.
However, critics say this could only explain the first season - before Foy won a host of awards and nominations for the role.
But The Crown's third season presents a unique challenge of its own, as Netflix begins to draft an entirely new ensemble cast, beginning with Olivia Colman as the Queen.
However, even if the pay gap is remedied in future seasons, it won't benefit Foy, whose work on the series is over.
Claire Foy who has played Queen Elizabeth II during the first two series of the show has been paid less for her work than co-star Matt Smith who played her onscreen husband, Prince Phillip the Duke of Edinburgh.

Mackie said, "Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen".
At this time, representatives for Foy and Smith have not commented while Netflix declined to address the shocking pay discrepancy.
