The Crown In Two Parts
The final season of The Crown will be split into two parts, as it covers the time period from 1997 to 2005, which saw Tony Blair (Bertie Carvel) serve as Prime Minister.
Part One which kicks off on November 16, explores a growing relationship between Princess Diana and Dodi Al Fayed, before the pair meet a tragic end, after dying in a car crash in Paris.
It also shows Prince William as he tries to reintegrate with university life at Eton following his mother’s death, while the Royal Family face a barrage of media scrutiny in the wake of the tragedy.
The season will also focus on the Queen, who reflects on the monarchy’s future, including Charles’ marriage to Camilla, and a love story that is Prince William and Kate Middleton (Meg Bellamy).
Part 2 which begins on December 16 will also include debut roles for Ed McVey, Luther Ford, and Meg Bellamy.
