First peeks at The Crown season six show how the hit Netflix series is to recreate more famous royal moments for its final instalment, including the final days of Princess Diana, some of the most heartbreaking ones of recent times.
The sixth season of The Crown will be its last and will air in two parts, with the first half arriving on the streaming site on November 16th and the second on December 14th. As displayed by a selection of teasing photographs released by Netflix, some memorable moments in British royal history will be covered, including the period leading up to the heartbreaking death of Diana, Princess of Wales, in 1997 and the first meeting of Prince William and Kate Middleton in the early 2000s.
Another moment that will be brought to life in the sixth season is Prince William and Prince Harry’s trip to Balmoral in August 1997, when the two young boys received the tragic news that their mother had passed away in a car accident in Paris.
The sixth season of The Crown takes off where the fifth left and picks up with Princes Charles and Diana spending the Summer apart as a newly divorced couple.
A statement from Netflix reads: “A relationship blossoms between Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed before a fateful car journey has devastating consequences.”
It continues: “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. 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 fairytale in William and Kate.”
Executive Producer Suzanne Mackie told The Daily Mail: “We’re very much in the beginning of the Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed story.” She continued: “From the second she steps onto that boat and [you begin to see] some of those iconic images of her on the yacht, it does take you immediately to the whirlwind that was the press speculation around that romance.”
