If you’ve been watching The Crown since its inception the moment we have all been waiting for has finally arrived.

The fourth season of The Crown premiering tomorrow will introduce us to the familiar stories and challenges of the British royal family, the ones we’ve been waiting to watch all this time.

The 1970s are coming to an end and with that comes the introduction of new and awaited characters such as Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson), and the young Lady Diana Spencer (Emma Corrin).

With them, the story evolves and introduces us to further difficulties faced both by Britain, with a divisive political landscape, and by individual characters, such as Queen Elizabeth in her aim of safeguarding the royal line of succession. 

The Crown will stay true to its narrative and continue showing us the behind the scenes and harsh reality of the so romanticised family. But this time it will do so by touching on topics that have been under public speculation for years and years. 

What we can be certain about is that the series will continue entertaining its millions of fans while informing us about the complex history and context of one of the most, if not the most, important families in this world. 

If you’re new to the Netflix series and don’t know what to watch during lockdown, this is the perfect time to start.

Whether you want to catch up and watch all of the previous seasons in order to have the detailed build-up and in-depth understanding or if you just want to skip right to the juicy part and start with season four, The Crown is waiting for you. 

So what are you waiting for?
