The Crown on Netflix – The official trailer for Part 1 of the final series of The Crown was released today – welcoming back the cast in their interpretation of the Royal Family characters that Peter Morgan first created in 2016.
“This is going to be the biggest thing that any of us have ever seen.”
Part 1 will debut on Netflix on 16th November. These first four episodes from the new season depict a relationship blossoming between Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed before a fateful car journey has devastating consequences.
In their first Summer as a divorced couple, Prince Charles and Princess Diana share very different holidays with their sons. Diana is being courted by the Fayeds in the South of France, giving the young Princes a taste of luxury yachts, video games and movie nights. Charles is sticking to tradition in Balmoral. The comparisons play out in the press, fuelled by a fervent paparazzi, and some of the Royal press team.
As yacht life and the constant media scrutiny loses its appeal, Diana longs to return to see her boys, who are back in Balmoral. A diversion to Paris sees matters come to a head – against the backdrop of an intensified and aggressive media pursuit.
After the news breaks of Diana and Dodi’s fatal car accident, a vast outpouring of public grief catches the Queen off-guard. With shockwaves resonating through the Palace, Al Fayed is also processing the loss of his cherished son. Hoping that the news will bring him and the Royal Family together in shared grief; he instead finds himself increasingly shunned.
Since arriving on Netflix in 2016, The Crown has been nominated for and won multiple awards, including 15 BAFTA nominations, 10 Golden Globe Nominations (including 4 wins), 69 Emmy Nominations across 5 seasons (with 21 wins across 4 seasons) and more.
