After one teaser and one extended teaser, Season 3 of The Crown has managed to keep several things under wraps but that was only till recently. After wondering as to how will things move forward post the exit of Claire Foy, this recent trailer clears things out quite a bit.
The full trailer of The Crown reveals how things aren't all hunky-dory for Queen Elizabeth (now to be played by Olivia Coleman). According to Variety, the trailer teases that this season the monarchy will have to grapple with miner’s strikes, a feisty Labour Party Prime Minister, and far from a small dose of in-fighting.
“On days like today ask yourself, in the time I’ve been on the throne, what have I actually achieved,” asks Colman’s Queen on the occasion of her Silver Jubilee, commemorating 25 years on the throne.
“This country was still great when I came to the throne, all that’s happened on my watch is the place has fallen apart,” she adds.
The trailer also offers a glimpse at the sisterly rivalry which has evolved between the Queen and Princess Margaret, played by Helena Bonham-Carter. Margaret clearly has a chip on her shoulder from always being number two. “Frustrations and resentments can build up from a life as a support act,” Margaret says.
From the trailer, season 3 will also deal with Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor) and the controversy around him falling in love with a young Camilla Parker Bowles (Emerald Fennell).
Season 3 of The Crown will release on Nov. 17
