The day has finally arrived!
The Crown season 2 has been released today and we are all extremely excited.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Foy teased that series 2 will “pretty much pick up where we left off”, and span seven to eight years, taking us up to around 1964.
The new series will examine British political controversies through the eyes of the Queen, including the Suez Crisis in 1956, which cost Prime Minister Anthony Eden his job. Season two will also explore the Queen’s relationship with his successor Harold MacMillan.
This season will focus heavily on the other royals such as Prince Phillip and Princess Maragret.
In the period covered by season two, Philip embarked on a world tour between 1956 and 1957, including taking the newly commissioned Yacht Britannia to the Antarctic Circle. Photographing the local wildlife, he eventually published a book with shots from his expedition, called Birds from Britannia.
In addition, Princess Margaret’s tempestuous love life will continue to play out in both public and private, with her relationship with photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones (later to be Lord Snowdon) forming a key part in the story of Elizabeth and her sister.
