The Crown Season 4 is set to premiere globally on Netflix on November 15. Another scene of a thousands-strong crowd gathering along a street to cheer Diana as she stands laughing in a bright pink outfit in the sunshine, quickly inter-cut with the solitary figure of Charles in the dark looking morose, hints at the strain Diana's public popularity would put on their relationship.

It also offers a look at Gillian Anderson as Margaret Thatcher.

The Princes and Princess are Prince Charles (Josh O'Connor) and Lady Diana Spencer (Emma Corrin).

Season 4 isn't just Diana, though that's the part that got my heart pounding the most.

The only words heard during the trailer are from Archbishop of Canterbury, Robert Runcie, who gave a speech on the day he married Charles and Diana in 1981.

How Partey was convinced to pick Arsenal over London rivals
Partey noted that the Arsenal fans were "crazy" for him, and loved receiving messages suggesting that supporters wouldn't sleep if he didn't sign.

Talking about some important plot lines and Diana, Tobias Mensies who plays Prince Philip on the show said, "I guess there are some similarities in that it's another outsider position that he obviously has been in, so maybe he has some kind of appreciation for the challenges that she's going through".

In this new season, the 1970s are drawing to a close. Obviously, if you know what's to come, the fairy tale wedding, though glamorous, doesn't actually lead to a happily ever after ending. The newest batch of episodes also marks the end of the run for "Crown" star Olivia Colman, who hands the baton off after this season, as the show continues its actor refresh every two seasons.

"Our faith sees the wedding day, not as the place of arrival, but the place where the adventure really begins", he concludes.

Earlier this year, Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix, praised the series, saying: "Seventy-three million households around the world have made The Crown part of the global cultural zeitgeist".
