Change will challenge tradition in the highly anticipated fourth season of The Crown.
On Thursday (October 29), Netflix dropped the first full length trailer for The Crown's next installment. In the less-than-three minute trailer, both Princess Diana and Margaret Thatcher are introduced as major players—and disruptors—in Buckingham Palace.
As the 1970s are drawing to a close, Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) and her family find themselves preoccupied with safeguarding the line of succession by securing an appropriate bride for Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor), who is still unmarried at 30. As the nation begins to feel the impact of divisive policies introduced by Britain's first female Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson), tensions arise between her and the Queen which only grow worse as Thatcher leads the country into the Falklands War, generating conflict within the Commonwealth. While Charles’ romance with a young Lady Diana Spencer (Emma Corrin) provides a much-needed fairytale to unite the British people, behind closed doors, the Royal family is becoming increasingly divided.
The Crown season 4 premieres Sunday, Nov. 15. Seasons 1-3 are now streaming on Netflix.
