In the series, the Golden Jubilee is approaching for the queen
The Golden Jubilee is about to approach and for the Queen it is time for reflection, especially on the future of the monarchy. The sixth season will focus in its second part on the marriage of Charles and Camilla and, in parallel, on the other love story of the royal family, that between William and Kate.
Returning to the cast are Dominic West (then Prince Charles), Jonathan Pryce (Prince Philip), Lesley Manville (Princess Margaret), Salim Daw (Mohamed Al Fayed), Imelda Stauton (Queen Elizabeth II), Elizabeth Debicki (Lady Diana ) and Olivia Williams (Camilla Parker Bowles)
Making their debut this season are Fflyn Edwards (Prince Harry) and Bertie Carvel (Prime Minister Tony Blair). In the second part of season 6, three adult actors will play two characters already portrayed as children and a new entry, namely Ed McVey (Prince William), Luther Ford (Prince Harry) and Meg Bellamy (Kate Middleton).
The Crown 6 will get closer and closer to current events and the present day, covering the years from 1997 to 2005 with this latest cycle.
The story of The Crown will stop at the events that occurred in 2005.
The 6th chapter recalls all the actresses who played the queen on the show
As anticipated in June 2023, The Crown 6 will portray Queen Elizabeth, bringing to the set all the actresses who have offered their faces to play the sovereign in the show. So on the set we will not only see Imelda Staunton, who arrived from the fifth season, but all three actresses who stepped into the royal role during the course of the show (plus one new one).
The sixth and final season of the television series which told the story of the long reign of Elizabeth II will conclude this narrative with the help of all the various “souls” of Queen Elizabeth, played during the series by Claire Foy, Olivia Colman and Imelda Staunton, plus new entry Viola Prettejohn.
Since the fifth season, Staunton has played Queen Elizabeth in the most mature phase of her life, taking on her role from 1991 onwards. In addition to her, we will also see Claire Foy and Olivia Colman, the actresses who played the British sovereign in the first two seasons and the following two respectively. Finally there will be a fourth interpreter, Viola Prettejohn. This actress has never been seen in The Crown, although she has already made herself known by acting in the HBO series The Nevers. The young Prettejohn will play Elizabeth when she was still a princess, at the time of the Second World War.
The sixth season should be the last
Netflix plans to wrap up The Crown with the sixth season, although the doors would remain open for a film or a series of specials. Theoretically The Crown should say goodbye to its loyal audience with the airing of the sixth season. However, an insider revealed in recent months to Sun that the streaming platform is considering the possibility of continuing the franchise, producing a series of films connected to the original show.
According to what was exclusively reported by Sun, the source revealed: “Making a movie or perhaps a series of specials would mean creators would have a lot more flexibility to jump around in terms of time and topics.” And then he added: “They could make a prequel or maybe focus on the abdication crisis of the 1930s.”
Season 6 trailer focuses on Princess Diana (Elizabeth Debicki)
Ten days ago the trailer for the first part of the series was released on Netflix’s official channels The Crown 6.
The video that previews what we will see starting from November 16th focuses above all on Princess Diana (played by actress Elizabeth Debicki). We see her in the years that led from her divorce to the terrible fatal accident that occurred in Paris in August 1997.
As the trailer suggests, a very critical period of Lady D will be analyzed and told, a very dark part of her existence, characterized by inner loneliness but also by great suffering caused by the obsessive attention that the media and paparazzi had developed in her comparisons. After the accident that costs her life, season six will delve into the effects of her death on both the public and the Crown. We will see Queen Elizabeth (Imelda Staunton), initially immobilized by the surprise, and the pain of Diana’s children, William and Harry, will be told.
