“Definitely the best series”, “I can not wait for the premiereooo”, “I can’t believe we’ll see the death of Princess Diana” and “Omggg, hopefully it will be released soon”, are some of the responses that got the first look at the characters.
With this preview, viewers were able to meet the characters who will tell the story of the royal family for the next two seasons (5 and 6), which will take place in the 90s and early 2000s.
This fifth installment of “The Crown” has caused a lot of expectation around the characters, since it is considered one of the worst stages in the lives of its characters, leading to the tragic end of Princess Diana during her stay in Paris in 1997.
Let’s remember that it was in season four when the series portrayed the beginning of the stormy relationship between Prince Charles and Princess Diana, who were played by Josh O’Connor and Emma Corrin, leading them to win a Golden Globe for Best Actor and Actress in a television series, respectively.
