Season three of The Crown lands on Netflix today and we’re too excited

After what felt like a lifetime, The Crown finally returns to Netflix this weekend. Season three of the phenomenal drama series lands on Netflix on Sunday, November 17 and we’re in for a real treat this season.

The stellar cast are bound to win fans over and impress viewers with their portrayal of the Royal Family.

The third season of The Crown sees a new guard sweep into Downing Street, as Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) and her family struggle to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing Britain. 

From cold-war paranoia, through to the jet-set and the space age – the exuberance of the 1960s and the long hangover of the 1970s – Elizabeth and the Royals must adapt to a new, more liberated, but also more turbulent world.

Season three storylines include the breakdown of Princess Margaret and Lord Snowden’s marriage and the death Lord Mountbatten.

Prince Charles and Princess Anne will be more central characters this season with a significant focus on the future king’s love life, including the early days of his relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles.

Written by Peter Morgan, The Crown also stars 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.

The Crown returns to Netflix on Sunday, November 17.
