The first four episodes will stream from November 16 and explore Princess Diana’s final days before she passed away tragically in a car accident in August 1997.
Producers have vowed to treat the death of the People’s Princess’ (played by Elizabeth Debicki) delicately, having discussed at length the best approach.
In an interview earlier this year, showrunner Peter Morgan reassured the public that the crash itself would not be depicted on screen. Instead, it’ll simply portray what occurred before and after the accident.
Streaming from December 14, part two will skip ahead to the early noughties and feature Diana’s sons, the Princes William and Harry, adjusting to life following their mother’s devastating passing.
“Prince William tries to integrate back into life at Eton in the wake of his mother’s death as the monarchy has to ride the wave of public opinion,” a synopsis for part two says.
Also featured will be Prince Charles’ marriage to long-time lover Camilla Parker-Bowles. Another key storyline in part two will be the budding romance between Prince William and his future wife, Kate Middleton.
In addition, as she reaches her Golden Jubilee, the Queen reflects on the future of the Monarchy with the marriage of Charles and Camilla and the beginnings of a new Royal fairy tale in William and Kate.
Fans and royal enthusiasts around the world have been anticipating the new series with bated breath. The excitement on social media could not be contained.
Eagerly waiting for the final season

As ever, absolutely perfect. I am so excited for this series. It has been an object of pure passion from Netflix since it started, and I can’t wait to see how they finish it. (And then hopefully announce spin offs ?).

Others expressed their trepidation watching the final season since the Queen’s passing on September 8 2022.
Because the Queen has actually passed – this final season for me is going to be the hardest to watch. Just wow. I’m not prepared. But somewhat excited.
