THE CROWN returns for series 4

The Crown traces the life of Queen Elizabeth II from her wedding in 1947 through to the present day.

The fourth season covers the time period between 1977 and 1990 and is set during Margaret Thatcher's premiership.

'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'.

Events depicted include the Wedding of Prince Charles and Diana, their 1983 tour of Australia and New Zealand, the Falklands War, Michael Fagan's break-in at Buckingham Palace, Lord Mountbatten's funeral, the Princess of Wales's appearance at the Barnardo's Champion Children Awards and Mrs Thatcher's departure from office.

Olivia Colman returns as Queen Elizabeth I and Emerald Fennell returns as Camilla.
