Jumping ahead in time with a brand new, star-studded cast, this is one of the most anticipated Netflix titles of the year. Here's everything we know so far.
Olivia Colman and Tobias Menzies as Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip
Who's in The Crown season 3 cast?
It's been months and months since we learnt that Olivia Colman (an actress adored by us following her appearances in Broadchurch, Fleabag and The Night Manager) would be taking over from Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II.
Alongside Foy is Helena Bonham Carter as the Princess Margaret and Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip. Les Miserables actor Josh O'Connor will play Prince Charles and Emma Corrin is taking on Lady Diana Spencer
Admire below Tobias Menzies in his princely garments - his face lined, his chest bejewelled with medals.
Prince Philip is far from the first new Royal we've been treated to. See Colman in all of Elizabeth's glory: soft pink cardigan beneath a tangle of pearls, lips pursed towards her floating cup of tea and the familiar barnet of gentle curls – and a serious expression.
Is she in the midst of another trying conversation with her Prime Minister? Perhaps she's engaging in a fractious dispute with her husband the Duke of Edinburgh.

She's joined by Helena Bonham Carter's Princess Margaret, who appears with perfect black eyeliner, stylish blue head adornment and – of course – an imperious stair at her cigarette holder.

Finally, we've also been treated to a look at Ben Daniels as Antony Armstrong-Jones, Princess Margaret's first husband and the rebellious photographer we met in season two of The Crown.

What's the story of The Crown season 3?
Season three of The Crown, under Colman's reign, takes us through the Queen's reign in the '70s. This will include the arrival of Lady Diana Spencer as well as the introduction of Camilla Parker-Bowles. The doomed marriage between Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon will also feature.
The first season of The Crown was – to date – the most expensive TV show ever made, costing the American streaming service a cool £100 million. The first and second seasons pulled in rave reviews (read our five star review here).
