As The crown heading into the nineties, Imelda Staunton takes over from Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II. Jonathan Pryce will play her husband Prince Philip, a role last portrayed by Tobias Menzies.

Season five is expected to focus on the end of the relationship between then-Prince Charles and Princess Diana, played by Dominic West and Elizabeth Debicki.

The breakdown of their marriage, including the ‘tampongate’ scandal and Diana’s Panorama interview, is expected to come, prompting backlash and criticism from many of the show’s critics.

The crown has also been surrounded by controversy as royal supporters have demanded that the series come with a disclaimer clarifying that it is a work of fiction.

The fifth season of The crown arrived on Netflix at 8am UK time.
