It’s time to jump into a new season of Netflix’s best historical drama because The Crown season 5 has finally arrived. The award-winning series is now tackling one of the biggest timeframes in Royal Family history as we see the end of Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s marriage. Of course, with that comes a ton of controversy, from Charles’ scandalous romance with Camilla Parker Bowles to Diana’s heightened attention in the media.
The Crown season 5 takes place between the years 1991 and 1997, also focusing on Queen Elizabeth II’s reign and her political issues after the fall of the Soviet Union. New actors have been ushered in to replace ones we’ve gotten to know previously as the characters grow older. Most of the central figures, such as Prince Charles, Princess Diana, Camilla, the Queen, and Princess Anne, are now being played by new actors in the latest season.
