How will Princess Diana become a part of the Royal Family? Which historical events will unfold in The Crown season 4? Here are 5 of the most burning questions fans are seeking answers to!
Which episode will Princess Diana appear in ‘The Crown’ Season 4?
According to “The Guardian”, the sixth episode in season 4 will focus on Charles and Diana’s 1983 six-week tour of Australia and New Zealand. Since the couple wed in 1981, the wedding episode could be the second or third, which means Princess Diana might appear in the first episode itself.
Princess Diana’s pregnancy will also be a part of the plotline, so we can expect her to be central to the series. Fans also want to see how the Queen reacts to her future daughter-in-law, as her feelings for her are unknown to the general public.
Will Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher overshadow the Queen?
‘The Crown’ Season 4 trailer saw a stern-looking Gillian Anderson playing Margaret Thatcher! Early reviews have already announced that her gritty portrayal of the prime minister is jaw-dropping. Viewers will see two powerful women working together so we can expect to see dominance from either one of them.
In her statement announcing her role, Anderson wrote, “Thatcher was undoubtedly formidable but I am relishing exploring beneath the surface and, dare I say, falling in love with the icon who, whether loved or despised, defined an era“. Fans of the show are expecting a hard-hitting portrayal of the icon and immensely looking forward to it.
What will happen in ‘The Crown’ Season 4?
The upcoming season is expected to cover the time period between 1977 and 1990. Lady Diana Spencer will make her first appearance before becoming Princess of Wales, as will Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. ‘The Crown’ Season 4 will cover the Queen and the Prime Minister’s clashing opinions, as the trailer has already hinted!
Some events that will be covered include Prince Charles and Lady Diana’s fairytale romance and wedding. A storyline along the birth of their children Prince William and Prince Harry will be included as well. Since the 80s will be depicted through the series, the disintegration of their marriage might be explored too. Season 4 will also cover the hotly anticipated 1983 royal tour of Australia with the newlyweds visiting the country.
Wikipedia also cites a casting for the role of Michael Fagan, so we can expect to see the unexpected palace break-in.
How many seasons of ‘The Crown’ are left?
‘The Crown’ Season 4 will premiere on November 15, 2020, with two more seasons left to be filmed. The cast changes every two years to reflect an apt chronological progression of the family through the years, so this is the end of Olivia Colman’s time on the show. Showrunner Peter Morgan originally announced that season 5 would be the last, but quickly went back on his decision to do so. This gives each cast the opportunity to portray their characters for two seasons, all but Emma Corrin. Emma Corrin who plays Princess Diana in season 4 will be replaced by Elizabeth Debicki in the last two seasons.
Who will play the Queen after Olivia Colman in ‘The Crown’?
The Crown originally began with Claire Foy portraying the role of Her Majesty the Queen, who then passed the baton to Olivia Colman. She will continue to play Queen Elizabeth II in the upcoming season 4 before Imelda Staunton steps in her shoes! British actress Imelda Staunton will take the Queen’s story to a conclusion in seasons 5 and 6, with the latter set to premiere in 2022. Staunton is best known for playing Dolores Umbridge in the Harry Potter franchise, and fans of the award-winning show can’t wait to see her wear the crown.
