On Friday, Netflix released the first full trailer the second part of the sixth and final seasonwhich revealed the deep inner turmoil and psychological conflicts that threaten to tear the royal family apart.
As evident from the opening shot of Queen Elizabeth II (Staunton) and her relatives posing for a group photo – and a young, disenchanted Prince William (Ed McVey) who needs to be reminded to smile and put on a fake happy face – this arc will be all about English pressure to keep calm and carry on.
As Queen Elizabeth As she tearfully reflects on the life and woman she put aside decades ago to serve her country, it is clear that the royal family’s move into the modern age and the struggle against the tides of change will affect the people who being required to be in that world will make or break.
Tensions between Prince Charles (Dominic West) and his sons – William and Prince Harry (Luther Ford) – also take center stage, and it’s clear that years of repressed generational trauma will continue their disturbing cycle.
When told that his boys will need him more than ever in the coming years, a doubtful Charles explains, “I’m afraid we don’t do very well with fathers and sons in this family.”
Meanwhile, we also get a look at William’s early romance with Kate Middleton (Meg Bellamy).
The trailer’s most powerful thematic moments come after Queen Elizabeth is informed of a poll showing the British public’s growing resentment towards the monarchy, with Her Highness expressing an interest in understanding why the people of her country feel so strongly about it thinks.
“The Crown does not ask itself existential questions,” says one of Queen Elizabeth’s advisers.
“Maybe we should,” she responds, reinforcing the idea of self-reflection and a battle against deep-rooted traditions that have supported the series since its inception.
