The 6th season and final season of Netflix’s flagship Emmy-winning series The Crown will debut on Netflix on November 16th. The first four episodes of part one depict the relationship blossoming between Princess Diana (Elizabeth Debicki) and Dodi Fayed (Khalid Abdalla) before that fateful car journey in Paris threw the entire world into mourning.
Diana is being courted by the Fayeds in the South of France, giving the young Princes a taste of luxury yachts, video games and movie nights. Charles (Dominic West) is sticking to tradition in Balmoral. The comparisons play out in the press, fueled by a fervent paparazzi, and some of the Royal press team.
As yacht life and the constant media scrutiny lose their appeal, Diana longs to return to see her boys, who are back in Balmoral. A diversion to Paris sees matters come to a head – against the backdrop of an intensified and aggressive media pursuit.
After the news breaks of Diana and Dodi’s fatal car accident, a vast outpouring of public grief catches the Queen (Imelda Staunton) off-guard. With shockwaves resonating through the Palace, Al Fayed is also processing the loss of his cherished son. Hoping that the news will bring him and the Royal Family together in shared grief; he instead finds himself increasingly shunned.
Part 1 of the final season of The Crown debuts on November 16 with four episodes. Here is the trailer.
