What will happen in The Crown season 4?

The fourth series of The Crown will cover the period between 1977 and 1990.

In the new series, viewers will get to meet Lady Diana Spencer (played by Emma Corrin).

Their young sons, Prince William and Prince Harry will also be introduced.
Conservative Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson) will be introduced in the new series.

Events depicted in the new series include Diana and Charles tour of Australia and New Zealand, the Falklands War, Michael Fagan’s break into Buckingham Palace, the Troubles and apartheid.

The synopsis for the new series reads: “As the 1970s are drawing to a close, Queen Elizabeth and her family find themselves preoccupied with safeguarding the line of succession by securing an appropriate bride for Prince Charles, who is still unmarried at 30.

“As the nation begins to feel the impact of divisive policies introduced by Britain’s first female Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, tensions arise between her and the Queen which only grow worse as Thatcher leads the country into the Falklands War, generating conflict within the Commonwealth.

“While Charles’ romance with a young Lady Diana Spencer provides a much-needed fairytale to unite the British people, behind closed doors, the Royal family is becoming increasingly divided.”
