The Crown Season 5 Trailer Revolves Around Prince Charles and Lady Diana
The fifth installment of the Crown will see the tensions mounting between the Prince and Princess of Wales as their marriage begins to collapse.

It also features the controversial 1995 interview where Lady Diana sat down with former BBC journalist Martin Bashir and said, “I won’t go quietly; I’ll battle to the end.”
The voiceover in the trailer said, “The House of Windsor should be binding the nation together, setting an example of idealized family life. It’s a situation that can’t help but affect the stability of the country.” An official synopsis from Netflix reads: “As Queen Elizabeth II (Imelda Staunton) approaches the 40th anniversary of her accession, she reflects on a reign that has encompassed nine prime ministers, the advent of mass television, and the twilight of the British Empire. Yet new challenges are on the horizon. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the transfer of sovereignty in Hong Kong signals a seismic shift in the international order presenting both obstacles and opportunities. Meanwhile, trouble is brewing closer to home.”
