Diana and Camilla move, plot and throw



Netflix has released the trailer for the fifth season of The Crown, the series created by Peter Morgan which made its world debut in 2016. In the video images, the first opportunity to see the new cast. In particular, Lady Diana and Camilla draw attention to themselves: that’s why.

In the new episodes of The Crown 5, Queen Elizabeth II, played this season by Imelda Staunton, has just celebrated the 40th anniversary of her accession to the throne. Prince Charles, played by Dominic West, pressures his mother to allow him to divorce Diana (Elizabeth Debicki). But the tension should still rise after the entry on the scene of Mohamed Al Fayed (Salim Daw). Driven by his desire to be accepted by the higher order, he exploits his self-made wealth and power in an attempt to seat himself and his son Dodi (Khalid Abdalla) at the royal table. Scandals, betrayals and more await audiences in the highly anticipated fifth season of The Crown, which hits Netflix on November 9.

As the 40th anniversary of her accession to the throne approaches, Queen Elizabeth II (Imelda Staunton) looks back on a reign that included nine prime ministers, the advent of television for the masses and the demise of the British Empire. But new challenges loom on the horizon. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the transfer of sovereignty from Hong Kong signal a sea change in the international order and present challenges and opportunities for the monarchy…but new problems are emerging not far from home.

Prince Charles (Dominic West) pressures his mother to agree to a divorce from Diana (Elizabeth Debicki), setting the stage for a constitutional crisis in the monarchy. The increasingly separated life between husband and wife fuels much gossip. As media scrutiny intensifies, Diana decides to take control of the situation and breaks the family rules by publishing a book that threatens Carlo’s public support and exposes the differences within the House of Windsor. Tensions rise when Mohamed Al Fayed (Salim Daw) enters the scene who, driven by a desire to be accepted by the nobility, takes advantage of the wealth and power he has acquired on his own to secure a seat in the royal table for him and his son Dodi (Khalid Abdalla).

The reactions to the trailer

Highly anticipated, the trailer for The Crown 5 anticipates the contrasts that definitively marked the royal family during the 1990s. Starting from the famous Annus Horribilis, 1992 – thus renamed by Queen Elizabeth II herself – the fifth season will in the face of the gradual loss of public consent to the English monarchy. And it will do so with an exceptional cast which, already from the trailer – embellished with a suggestive cover of the bittersweet symphony of The Verve – has already won over the public. In particular, Internet users seem to agree, paradoxically, on the two historical “rivals”, namely Lady Diana and Camilla Parker Bowles, played respectively by Elizabeth Debicki and Olivia Williams. “They fit perfectly”, there are those who comment under the post that appeared on the official page of Netflix Italy. “Diana and Camilla are awesome,” someone else wrote. In short, soaring hype for one of the most beloved – and most talked about – series of recent years.
