Season Four of The Crown follows the British royal family through the 1980s, including the wedding of Charles and Diana, the rise of Margaret Thatcher, and the Falklands War. “If this didn’t actually happen in reality, you’d say this was a science fiction show about a group of aliens who have infiltrated the very top of the British government and are trying to convince the rest of the world they understand human interrelationships” – Caitlin Merriman
The Crown (showrunner Peter Morgan) stars Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II, Tobias Menzies as Prince Phillip, Gillian Anderson as Margaret Thatcher, Josh O’Connor as Prince Charlies, Emma Corrin as Princess Diana, Erin Doherty as Princess Anne, and Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret.
