Season 4 takes place during Thatcher’s controversial leadership between 1979 and 1990. The relationship between her and Queen Elizabeth was reportedly quite frosty, suffering many disagreements on the Falklands War, the Miners’ Strike, and the problem of apartheid in South Africa.

The Crown writer Peter Morgan has covered this relationship before in his 2013 play The Audience, with Hadyn Gwynne as Thatcher and Helen Mirren as Queen Elizabeth.
So, season 4 might prove to be the most exciting in the show’s history. We can’t wait to see what Anderson has in store.
The Crown season 3 will be available on Netflix in Autumn 2019
