The preview features the early days of the iconic couples' romance leading to their historic wedding, as their relationship takes a sour turn.

The Crown Series Four will be released on Netflix on Sunday, November 15, and will see dark times for the royals as they face yet more political and social upheaval with the election of Margaret Thatcher as Prime Minister.

The trailer is narrated with a recording of the actual speech given by the Archbishop of Canterbury Robert Runcie during Charles and Diana's wedding in 1981, when he famously said of their marriage: 'Here is the stuff of which fairy tales are made.'

It begins with a glimpse of a young and carefree Diana (played by Emma Corrin) being brought to meet the Her Majesty The Queen (Olivia Colman), as her and Charles' (Josh O'Connor) relationship begins to blossom.

Diana disguised as a man: the day she went unnoticed in a bar

To be quiet, the princess had disguised herself as a man. Princess Diana could be very surprising. In addition to being the wife of Prince Charles , she enjoyed enormous popularity, so much so that she could not go out on the streets like everyone else.

As the couple enjoy a romantic dance, the trailer then cuts to the introduction of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson) preparing to step out following her election as the UK's first female Prime Minister.

It's been thought that Thatcher had numerous disagreements with the Queen about the country's running, and particularly the UK's involvement in the Falklands war.

The Crown's Emma Corrin Reveals 'Filthy' Diana Anecdote She Unearthed During Research

  The Crown's Emma Corrin Reveals 'Filthy' Diana Anecdote She Unearthed During Research The Crown newcomer Emma Corrin has revealed a rather rude anecdote she unearthed about Princess Diana in the lead-up to the new series of the royal drama. The actor is joining the cast of the award-winning Netflix show for its upcoming fourth season, where she’ll play Princess Diana opposite Josh O’Connor, who is returning as Prince Charles. Speaking to HuffPost UK about getting into character, Emma revealed she did lots of research about Diana, including speaking to people who knew her, which is where the actor discovered a “filthy” tidbit about the late royal.

This tension becomes even more apparent as Thatcher kneels to The Queen, hinting at the conflicting powers between them.

The preview then offering a glimpse of the Queen riding horseback to attend the Trooping of the Colour, an annual ceremony performed by the regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies to celebrate the Queen's official birthday.

As tensions rise in the Royal Household, Princess Margaret faces a nasty health scare after being rushed into surgery to remove a 'small part of her lung,' caused by years of heavy smoking.

The Crown Ending at Season 6 Could Mean Missing Out on Addressing Current (and Important) Themes

  The Crown Ending at Season 6 Could Mean Missing Out on Addressing Current (and Important) Themes It appeared an odd decision when Netflix announced that The Crown was going to end at season 5. When each other set of actors had two seasons by which to cover important storylines, and complete the arcs for their characters, the lack of season 6 induced worry that season 5 would therefore appear rushed. However, fear not - the pitter-patter of Corgi paws and pure decadent indulgence is not going to be over as soon as originally planned.

Charles and Diana then embark on a historic tour of Australia where they are greeted by thousands of well-wishers, though it seems the Prince is at odds with his father Prince Phillip about his marriage, given there is a moment of disagreement between the pair.

It's been claimed that Phillip ordered Charles to propose to Diana as opposed to stringing her along for months on end, and the trailer does show a glimpse of the moment their engagement was announced in 1981.

While from the outset Charles and Diana's relationship seems to be the perfect fairy tale, their relationship seems to crumble quickly as the trailer shows them arguing in the middle of a church.

The Royal Family is once again hit by tragedy as they attend the funeral of Lord Mountbatten, after he was assassinated by a bomb hidden aboard his fishing boat Mullaghmore, County Sligo, Ireland by members of the Provisional Irish Republican Army.

The preview then launches into a montage showing yet more drama besetting the Royal Family, including the Queen's address to the World's leaders, with Prime Minister Thatcher watching on, and Diana's ongoing struggle to conform.

It ends with an image of the Princess clad in her beautiful David Emanuel wedding down, beaming at the prospect of her impending nuptials as the veil is placed on her face.

Note from Diana denying claims she was manipulated by BBC goes missing

  Note from Diana denying claims she was manipulated by BBC goes missing According to BBC records the letter from the Princess stated that she had not been exploited by its reporter Martin Bashir who interviewed Diana 25-years-ago for Panorama. In a momentous moment in both royal and TV history Diana told Mr Bashir and the 23 million people watching on November 20, 1995: 'There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded.' No one and nothing was off limits; Diana didn't even spare her own reputation. In one gripping exchange with Mr Bashir, she admitted she had been unfaithful with Army officer James Hewitt.'Yes, I adored him,' she said. 'Yes, I was in love with him.

In first look snaps for series four released last month, Emma looks just like Diana when she replicates her visit to the Royal Opera House for a charity recital - and while Emma wears a purple gown in the scenes, Diana famously wore a very similar design, in black.

It is the first of two images to feature the so-called 'People's Princess' as another also features her in a sophisticated cream ensemble being surrounded by photographers, while wearing a yellow suit.

Another picture showcases the moment Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher arrived at Downing Street in 1979 after being elected for the first time, supported by her proud husband Denis (played by Stephen Boxer).

Helena Bonham Carter can be seen depicting Princess Margaret during a particularly pensive moment, as she adjust to life in Mustique following the end of her marriage to Anthony Armstrong-Jones.

The Crown's Imelda Staunton Feeling 'Pressure From Every Angle' As She Prepares To Take Over Queen Role

  The Crown's Imelda Staunton Feeling 'Pressure From Every Angle' As She Prepares To Take Over Queen Role Imelda Staunton has admitted there’s “pressure from every angle” as she prepares to take over as the Queen in The Crown. It was announced earlier this year that the actor will succeed Olivia Colman as the monarch in the fifth and sixth series of the hit Netflix drama. Appearing on Wednesday’s edition of This Morning, Imelda spoke of the desire to live up to expectations as Elizabeth II. “There’s pressure from every angle,” she told hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes. “I’m following two extraordinary actresses, but I’m also following one extraordinary human being, which is the Queen.

Some of the key moments featured have been given artistic licence and do not exactly replicate images taken of the Royal Family.

One example of this is a picture of Olivia Colman, playing the Queen at the Royal Variety performance in 1984, alongside Tobias Menzies, who plays her husband Prince Phillip.

In reality the royal couple did not attend the annual showcase until the following year.

Erin Doherty also features in an image of Princess Anne wearing a striking white and yellow floral ensemble with a matching fascinator, which she famously wore to Diana and Charles' wedding in 1981.

Josh O'Connor, Olivia Colman posing for the camera: Netflix's original series The Crown takes us on a journey through the royal family's lives post-World War II until the late 1970s. Season one looked at the drama surrounding Queen Elizabeth II's rise to the throne and took us right up into season two's birth of Prince Edward in 1964. But how does the cast compare to the real-life royals? Season three of The Crown, which sees a whole new cast take reign, is now streaming on Netflix. Seasons 1-2 are also now available on DVD.

The Queen and Charles also appear to be in the midst of a dramatic exchange in one image, while another shows Marion Bailey as the beloved Queen Mother during a public engagement.

The Crown's fourth series will document Diana's blossoming romance with Prince Charles, as the trailer features the moment she emerges to greet an army of photographers, along with crowds cheering her name as she travels the world on behalf of the monarchy.

This includes Diana's 1983 tour of Australia, when she famously donned a beautiful fuchsia pink dress, which featured prominently in series four's first trailer, which was released last month.

Martin Bashir is 'seriously unwell' from COVID-19 complications

The preview ended with a glimpse of Diana's iconic David Emmanuel wedding dress, which will take centre stage as The Crown recreates her historic 1981 wedding.

The Crown Series Four will begin as the 1970s are drawing to a close, with the Royal Family preoccupied with safeguarding the line of succession by securing an appropriate bride for Prince Charles who is still unmarried at 30.

The British nation is struggling with the impact of the divisive policies introduced by Britain's first female Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

Tensions between the Prime Minister and the Queen are expected to only get worse as Thatcher leads the country into the Falklands War, generating conflict within the Commonwealth.

A silver lining comes in the form of Charles' fairytale romance with young Lady Diana, but behind closed doors, the Royal family is becoming increasingly divided.

Diana married Charles in 1981, and the couple welcomed sons William in 1982 and Harry in 1984. After separating in 1991, the couple divorced in 1996, with Diana then tragically killed in a car accident on 31st August 1997.

Emma's casting was announced in April 2019, with The Crown's creator Peter Morgan calling her 'a brilliant talent who immediately captivated us when she came in for the part of Diana Spencer.'

Helena will once again appear as Princess Margaret, while Tobias will play Prince Phillip.

Josh will reprise his role as Prince Charles, expected to take centre stage this series due to his relationship with Diana.

The series will also feature the ongoing issue of apartheid in South Africa, as well as the assassination of Lord Mountbatten (Charles Dance), and the miners' strike of 1984-85.

Despite concerns that the series would be delayed due to the COVID-19 crisis, which brought much of the television industry to a halt, it seems the fourth season will be released as planned.

Bosses revealed back in March that filming was wrapped earlier than planned, though a majority of principle photography had already been completed.

It was recently announced that The Night Manager star Elizabeth Debicki has been cast as Princess Diana for The Crown's final two series, while Jonathan Pryce was announced to be taking over the role of Prince Philip.

The actor, 73, will join the star-studded cast of the hit Netflix show and portray the royal through the 1990s and 2000s.

Jonathan has said that it will be 'a joy' to act alongside Imelda Staunton as the Queen and Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret.

In The Crown's first two series Claire Foy took on the role of Queen Elizabeth, while Prince Philip was played by Matt Smith, and Princess Margaret by Vanessa Kirby.

It was recently announced The Crown will run for six series instead of five.

Creator Peter revealed he decided to 'return to the original plan,' meaning Imelda will now appear for two series as an older Queen Elizabeth II.

Producers decided to a U-turn after their January announcement The Crown would end after its fifth series.

Peter said: 'As we started to discuss the storylines for Series 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons.'

The Crown Series Four will be released on Netflix on Sunday, November 15th.

Pivotal moments from The Crown so far...

King Edward VIII abdicates the throne for love

Edward fell in love with Wallis Simpson, a married woman, and planned to marry her after his coronation when her divorce had come through.

However they were denied the opportunity to marry and due to divorce being forbidden for the Royals and decided to move to France together.

Edward later returned to England to face his family for the funeral of George VI following his death and went on to form a close bond with Prince Charles.

Princess Margaret is also denied her happy ending

Princess Margaret, who is painted as the Royal rebel throughout the first and second seasons, hoped to step outside tradition and marry divorcee Peter Townsend.

However growing public chatter over the illicit relationship begins to overshadow Elizabeth's post coronation fame.

Margaret makes her intentions to marry Peter clear to Queen Elizabeth II and she asks her to wait until she is 25 to tie the knot with her love.

However when her 25th birthday does roll around the Queen has to go back on her word due to pressure from the Crown, and tells Margaret that she cannot grant her permission to marry Peter.

Winston Churchill's rise and fall

The first and second seasons depicted the Queen's relationship with the Prime Minister of the time, Winston Churchill.

Following his successful leadership during the Second World War, Winston rises to power again for a second time during Elizabeth's reign.

The Crown follows Winston's journey as he adjusts to answering to a woman in power and his deteriorating health.

Royal marriage is rocked Elizabeth's new role

The power struggle in the relationship is clear to see as Elizabeth's role as the Queen takes priority over her marriage, while Prince Philip isn't used to taking a backseat.

The Crown also hints at infidelity in their relationship as Elizabeth finds a picture of Russian ballerina Galina Ulanova among his possessions, before sending him off on a five-month tour on the Royal yacht.

The tension comes to a head during the premiere for season two when the Royal couple argue on board the HMY Britannia as they strive to find a resolution to their problems, due to divorce not being an option for a monarch.

Elizabeth's journey to accepting the Crown

The start of the series shows a more wary and shy Elizabeth, compared to the formidable monarch she has grown into.

One of the key moments in the first series is her journey to accepting the Crown, after having to reconfigure all of the relationships in her life.

The series shows the Queen growing in confidence as she finds herself on a path of self-discovery.

The Queen visits Aberfan

Episode three of the third season focuses on the Aberfan disaster which killed 144 people, including 116 childrne, after a colliery spoil tip collapsed over a school in a Welsh village.

The Queen did not immediately visit the disaster site, citing that she did not want to distract away from the tragedy with her presence.

However after reflecting on her decision, she eventually visited alongside her husband and it is claimed her delayed response remains one of her greatest regrets.

In a bid to give the public a better understanding of the Royal family they let a camera crew into their lives for 18 months.

The Crown depicts the whole thing as a disaster with the family reportedly banning the programme from ever being aired again.

However in actuality, the documentary was well-received and had sky high viewing figures.

After receiving backlash for the title 'Prince of Wales', despite not being a citizen or speaking the language, Prince Charles was sent to Aberystwyth University to learn the language.

Charles, who was 20 at the time, finished the trip with an elaborate investiture to pledge his allegiance to the Queen in Welsh.

However he asked to tweak the speech to add in his own voice, promising the Welsh residents that they wouldn't be forgotten by England again.

After being sent on a Royal tour of the U.S. in place of her sister, Margaret was invited to dinner at the White House by President Lyndon B. Johnson.

The whole night appeared a huge success thanks to Margaret's quick-wit and charm, with President Johnson seemingly lapping it up.

However across the pond Margaret's success appeared to worry the Queen as she seemed concerned she was being outshone by her sibling.
