The Crown is officially coming back to Netflix for a fourth season in November, and there are a lot of exciting changes that were debuted in the trailer. Follow along as the Royal Family enters the 1980s and makes history with some of the most significant moments to ever go down amongst the Royals.
Creator Peter Morgan is known for changing up the cast every two seasons to accurately portray the right age of each Royal, but this season, the cast will remain the same as season three. So, Olivia Colman will be returning as Queen Elizabeth II, Tobias Menzies will play Prince Philip, along with some other familiar faces from the past.
The upcoming season is being filmed in Malaga, Spain, which has made for an exquisite setting. One of the many momentous events covered in season four will be Prince Charles and Lady Diana’s wedding. Diana is played by Emma Corrin, who’s honored to show off her character’s iconic and elegant wedding dress.
“Emma is a brilliant talent who immediately captivated us when she came in for the part of Diana Spencer,” explained Peter Morgan. “As well as having the innocence and beauty of a young Diana, she also has, in abundance, the range and complexity to portray an extraordinary woman who went from anonymous teenager to becoming the most iconic woman of her generation.”
The costume crew has gone above and beyond to recreate some of Diana’s most memorable looks, including tracking down some very particular articles of clothing to add authenticity to the series. An old workout sweatshirt was sold for $50,000 at an auction in July, proving that her timeless wardrobe is priceless.
While the original cast from the first two seasons is no longer a part of the series, one familiar face, Claire Foy, will make a guest appearance to show a flashback to HRH’s 21st birthday. Be sure to log into Netflix this November to watch Peter Morgan’s depiction of the Royal Family come to life.
