The Crown offers an extraordinary performance of Emma Corrin as Princess Diana.

We are in the late 1970s. Queen Elizabeth II (Olivia Colman) wants Carlos (Josh O’Connor) to find a wife rather than waste time, the Irish IRA wants to step up their campaign, and the dazzling new Prime Minister wants to make Britain great again.

And so begins the last season of the series The Crown, the director’s drama Peter Morgan on the lives and loves of the House of Windsor throughout the 20th century.

The historical focus of the fourth season is located in the 1980s, which heralds a winning combination of juicy storylines and problematic characters.

As always happens with The Crown, you need to get into the air a bit before you start to be seduced with the discreet charm of a courtier bringing tea and cake.
