I think my sort of extra challenge, as if I needed it, is that I’m now doing the Queen that we’re a little more familiar with,” she said. “With Claire Foy, it was almost history and now I’m playing one that people could say ‘she doesn’t do that,’‘she’s not like that,’ and that’s my personal bête noire.” The Shakespearean actor will play the role of The Queen's Private Secretary who in real life served her in this position from 1990 to 1999.

November 1995 – The Queen Mother has a hip replacement operation, becoming the oldest patient to undergo such surgery at the age of 95. Season 4 also did a fantastic job of making each and every cast member pretty unlikeable. The substantial age gap between Charles and Diana makes for a turbulent dynamic – Charles’ petulant reactions to Diana’s personal struggles paired with his unwillingness to let go of Camilla (Emerald Fennell) makes him hard to watch in season 4. All in all, the Queen dubbed 1992 her "annus horribilis" in a famous speech. That's bound to be great material for the writers of Netflix's hit series. Throughout the season, the Queen observed Thatcher’s weakness when it came to her children, particularly her son Mark who she cited as her favorite. Upon learning this, The Queen sets off on a personal journey to reconnect with her own children, and discovers that they all carry their own indiscretions, emotional baggage and personal struggles. And to top off that year, we're set to see a fiery, fictionalized spectacle based on the 1992 Windsor Castle fire. The real fire burned for around 15 hours and caused six minor injuries to staff – and a great big castle fire is a good old excuse for some top-notch TV drama, isn’t it?As will the previous four seasons, there will be 10 episodes in The Crown season 5, which begins in 1991 and ends in the Spring of 1997 with the election of Tony Blair. The Crown season 5 plot - what happens? Prince William, who is about to start school at Eton, will be played by Senan West, real-life son of on-screen father Dominic West.Meanwhile, an even younger William is played by Timothee Sambor.

The Queen (Olivia Colman) also took an early shining to Princess Diana (Emma Corrin) as Charles’ (Josh O'Connor) perfect, prospective bride. After passing ‘The Balmoral Test’ with flying colors, the royal family pressured Charles into marrying Diana.Newly separated, Prince Charles has a new lease of life and really starts to prove himself worthy of the title King-in-waiting. However, when a recording of an intimate phone call between him and Camilla is leaked to the press, his reputation lies in tatters. But far from destroying him, it further motivates him to distance himself from the traditionalists of his mother's court and plough his own path as a modern, future King. He takes part in a controversial interview with Jonathan Dimbleby and sets up his own 'rival' court in St James's Palace leaving the rest of the royals with no choice but to sit up and take heed.

Dominic West stars alongside his son Senan West, who plays Prince William (Image credit: Keith Bernstein/Netflix) The iconic chat, in which Diana famously said "there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded," has seen new controversy recently, with an investigation into how the interview was arranged. The Crown season 5 doesn’t have an official plotline yet, but we can take a swing at what might happen based on its trailer (below) and real-life royal events, with an additional season taken into account.

The fourth run ended with the downfall of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher ( Gillian Anderson ), while the marriage between Charles, Prince of Wales (Josh O'Connor) and Diana, Princess of Wales ( Emma Corrin) sunk to a new low. But anyone expecting recent real-life episodes, such as Prince Harry's decision to move to America with his wife Meghan, are set to be disappointed: “To be clear, series six will not bring us any closer to present-day — it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail," he added. Previous seasons all numbered 10 episodes each, and this one is expected to be the same. The Crown season 5 cast The Crown season 4 wrapped up in 1990 with the resignation of an unpopular Thatcher and a particularly frosty Christmas at Balmoral Castle. During the festivities, both The Queen and Prince Philip tire of Charles and Diana’s marriage complaints. While the Queen simply and coldly urged Charles to focus on his royal duty, Philip turned a darker corner, with a quiet warning of the consequences Diana will face if her marriage fails. Therefore the events that appear in this period are as follows (but aren't all covered in the series) are as follows.

I'd say our version of that famous line is as close as possible to the original," says Elizabeth. "It's a very profound sentence that she uttered, it is laden with so much meaning. It's very interesting doing any kind of recreation of these things, because people bring their memories to it when they hear it again. It’s a fascinating thing as an actor, to be aware of that process happening. Let’s just say I listened to it a lot. I couldn't even tell you how many times!" Dominic West will play Prince Charles October 1994 – Prince Philip attends a ceremony in Israel where his late mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg, is honoured for sheltering Jewish families from the Nazis during World War II. The Californication actress was confirmed to The Mirror to be starring as Penny Knatchbull, a close friend of the Royal Family.Story: With The Crown season 4 ending in Christmas 1990, this next season explores the end of Charles and Diana's marriage, John Major's time as Prime Minister, and the Queen's annus horribilis in 1992.
