Prepare for the return of ‘The Crown’ as it embarks on its sixth and concluding season. The historical drama, a Netflix favorite, chronicles Queen Elizabeth’s reign from the 1940s to the early 2000s. Season One began with her ascension to the throne at just 25 and her marriage to Prince Philip. Since then, the series has delved into the intrigues of the royal family while unraveling the enigma of monarchy.

Production on Season Six resumed after a brief hiatus following Queen Elizabeth’s passing. Creator Peter Morgan, paying tribute to the monarch, described ‘The Crown’ as a “love letter” to her. The new season, teased in Vanity Fair’s first-look images, will pick up in 1997 where Season Five left off, extending at least until 2001.

What to Expect in Season Six?

While the official plot remains confidential, historical accuracy suggests Season Six may cover Princess Diana’s demise, 9/11, Prince William’s college years, Queen Elizabeth’s Golden Jubilee, and the passing of Princess Margaret and the Queen Mother.

Will We Witness William and Kate’s Romance? All signs point to yes. Season Six glimpses William and Kate (Ed McVey and Meg Bellamy) at college, capturing moments of their budding romance. The couple met at The University of Saint Andrews and dated for nearly five years. Their engagement interview sentiments may also find a place in the narrative.
