From the beginning, ‘The Crown’ has been one of the most exceptional shows of this generation and chronicles the journey of the British Royal Family. In this fictionalized take, we saw different eras of Britain’s most famous family and captured some of the most dramatic and scandalous moments of their lives. The first four seasons turned out to be massively successful and won several laurels, but now, it’s time for one of the show’s most interesting and controversial seasons yet.
The fifth edition of the Netflix drama series sees Queen Elizabeth II approaching the 40th anniversary of her accession and trouble is brewing closer to home. Princes Charles wants to divorce his wife Princess Diana and talk about the same with his mother.
