The Queen Is Here. Well, the new queen is here, actually. The new trailer of the third season of The Crown has arrived and it stars Olivia Coleman as Queen Elizabeth II as she takes over from Claire Foy in the first two seasons.
A few days ago, the teaser of the show was revealed and now a longer version of the same is out. The trailer is the first footage of the royal drama's recast third season and effectively introduces Olivia Colman's aged-up Queen Elizabeth II, while also paying tribute to Claire Foy's portrayal (Foy parted ways with the Netflix drama after two seasons as young Queen Elizabeth).
The 30-second first look opens with the unveiling of the Queen's portrait to show Her Majesty's transition from a young woman to — as the Queen puts it — "old bat." When her staff insists the profile is an "elegant reflection," Coleman's Queen Elizabeth II quips, "A great many changes. Nothing one can do about it. One just has to get on with it."
The show has already been renewed for the third and fourth season and showrunner Peter Morgan's central characters and chronicle Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the present day. New castmembers include Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Tobias Menzies as The Duke of Edinburgh, Josh O'Connor as Prince Charles, Erin Doherty as Princess Anne, Ben Daniels as Lord Snowdon, Jason Watkins as Prime Minister Harold Wilson and Charles Dance as Lord Mountbatten.
