For Prince Charles and Princess Diana, Happily Forever was just the beginning. That’s the idea explored in a new trailer for The crown season 4, which welcomes Diana (Emma Corrin) and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson) to the cast. The footage teases Queen Elizabeth’s (Olivia Colman) reunions with the two royal disruptors and draws parallels between their promising entries in the public eye.
But as the story ended, Diana and Margaret would see their relationship with the monarchy deteriorate. There is the voiceover of a revealing passage from Charles (Josh O’Connor) and Diana’s marriage in 1981, with words read by the Archbishop of Canterbury. “This is the stuff fairy tales are made of – a prince and a princess on their wedding day,” the reading begins. “But fairy tales usually end, at this point, with the simple phrase, ‘They lived happily ever after.’ As husband and wife live out their vows, loving and cherishing each other, sharing in life’s splendors and miseries, achievements and setbacks, they will be transformed in the process. Our faith does not see the wedding day as the place of arrival but the place where the adventure really begins. “
As the new trailer shows, heartbreak is in store not only for Charles and Diana, but for several. The crowncharacters. Princess Margaret (Helena Bonham Carter) wallows above a pool of water. A body is buried. Prince Philip (Tobias Menzies) and the Queen appear to be at a marital stalemate. And there’s this illegible expression of Charles, just as his bride (and her 25 foot wedding dress) is about to walk down the aisle.
A description of The crown Season 4, per Netflix, reads as follows:
As the 1970s draw to a close, Queen Elizabeth and her family are concerned about safeguarding the line of succession by finding a suitable bride for Prince Charles, who is still unmarried at 30.
While Charles’ romance with a young Lady Diana Spencer provides a much-needed fairy tale to unite the British people, as the transformation from teenager to Princess of Wales takes place, it’s anything but a fairy tale for Diana.
As stated previously, the new season will run from the mid-1970s to the 1990s, marking the end of Thatcher’s reign as Prime Minister. It also comes to an end about two years before Charles and Diana went their separate ways, following the birth of their sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. “You meet her and she’s… 16,” Corrin said. Vanity Fair of Diana’s arrival on The crown. “From Episode 1 to 3, we see her vibrant before entering the palace – and how normal she was, living in her apartment with friends… then she is truly transported overnight.
