The first full trailer for The Crown‘s third season makes evident an underlying theme for the show’s next chapter: change.
On the obvious front, the cast is new. Oscar winner Olivia Colman succeeds Claire Foy in the role of Queen Elizabeth II, Helena Bonham Carter takes over as Princess Margaret following Vanessa Kirby, and more. But on a deeper level, in the show itself, the leading monarch finds herself in a different climate, working with new politicians and raising her now-grown-up children (namely Prince Charles and Princess Anne) who are grappling with the royal family dynamic in their own ways.
We start to see Prince Charles, for example, struggle with his responsibilities as the next in line for the throne. “Am I listened to in this family? Am I seen for who and what I am? No,” he presses in one scene with his mother. In another shot, we get a glimpse of his relationship with Camilla Parker-Bowles—his love interest before marrying Princess Diana, and current wife in real life.
The two-and-a-half-minute preview also shows the queen ahead of the 25th anniversary of her accession, intense moments between Princess Margaret and her husband Antony Armstrong-Jones, hints of sisterly competition between Elizabeth and Margaret, and political tension under Prime Minister Harold Wilson.
“We have all made sacrifices and suppressed who we are,” the queen says later in the trailer. “It is not a choice; it is a duty.”
The Crown Season 3 will debut on Netflix on Sunday, November 17.
