Coleman is one of those fortunate people that look much younger than they are. She could easily pass for a 25 year old, which she easily accomplished in the series. That is likely to set an upper limit on theatrical aging.
Anna Neagle played Victoria in the 1937 movie "Victoria the Great" from youth to old age:

Of course this picture was 16 years after the movie. I saw the actual movie on youtube but I couldn't find a picture of her as the aged queen. I remember her face was caked with makeup. It wasn't very convincing.

I think the producers would choose "convincing" for the current series.
