The trailer has finally dropped.

Netflix has finally released the trailer for season 5 of The Crown.

The trailer gives fans a first glimpse at the new cast of the royal drama series.

Inspired by real events, this fictional dramatisation tells the story of Queen Elizabeth II and the political and personal events that shaped her reign.

With the new decade in its stride, the Royal Family are presented with possibly their biggest challenge to date; as the public openly questions their role in ’90s Britain.

Imelda Staunton has taken over the role of Queen Elizabeth II in season 5.

Season 5 will feature the monarch’s 40th anniversary of her accession. Throughout season 5, the Queen reflects on a reign that has encompassed nine prime ministers, the advent of mass television, and the twilight of the British Empire.

Yet new challenges are on the horizon. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the transfer of sovereignty in Hong Kong signals a seismic shift in the international order presenting both obstacles and opportunities. Meanwhile, trouble is brewing closer to home.

The main, and most talked about, the storyline of season 5 will be the breakdown of Charles and Diana’s marriage.

Dominic West and Elizabeth Debicki will star as Prince Charles and Princess Diana this season.

The couple starts to live separate lives. As media scrutiny intensifies, Diana decides to take control of her own narrative, breaking with family protocol to publish a book that undermines public support for Charles and exposes the cracks in the House of Windsor.

The Crown series 5 launches globally on Wednesday, November 9th.
