The upcoming sixth season of “The Crown” will focus on Princess Diana’s final months before her tragic death in 1997.
The highly anticipated trailer for part one of “The Crown” season six has been released, giving viewers a glimpse into the final months of Princess Diana’s life. The historical drama series, based on the British royal family, will come to an end with its sixth season, which is being split into two parts. Part one will be available on Netflix from 16 November.
The trailer opens with poignant scenes of Diana, played by Elizabeth Debicki, looking forlorn as she plays the piano and sitting sadly on a pool diving board. She is then seen entering a private plane amid the flashing of paparazzi cameras. Her voiceover reflects on her life, saying, “I don’t know how I ended up here, dashing around and losing sight of myself in the process. I think that’s been the story of my whole life.”
The upcoming season will heavily focus on Diana’s death at the age of 36. While on a trip to Paris, Diana and her partner, Dodi Fayed, were involved in a fatal car crash in the Pont de l’Alma tunnel. Although the trailer does not show a scene depicting Diana’s death, it hints at the aftermath of the event, with Charles seen comforting his sons after receiving a phone call in the middle of the night. The season also promises to explore the impact of Diana’s death on the public and their perception of the royal family.
Fans of the show have expressed their anticipation for its return, as well as their concerns about the difficult content that the season will tackle. Many have praised Elizabeth Debicki’s portrayal of Diana, following in the footsteps of Emma Corrin’s acclaimed performance in seasons three and four.
In response to criticism of a scene from the final season that shows Diana as a ghost, series creator Peter Morgan clarified that it was not intended to be a traditional depiction of a ghost but rather Diana continuing to live vividly in the minds of those she left behind.
