‘The Crown’ season 5 will make its long-awaited premiere on November 9. As the show enters the 1990s, new cast members will be taking over the royal family roles. This includes Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II, Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana, Dominic West as Prince Charles, and Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip.

These actors will play these roles in the final 2 seasons of ‘The Crown.’ The transformations into the royals are truly amazing.

The show will begin as Queen Elizabeth II approaches the 40th anniversary of her accession. She reflects on a reign that has encompassed nine prime ministers, the advent of mass television, and the twilight of the British Empire. Yet new challenges are on the horizon. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the transfer of sovereignty in Hong Kong signals a seismic shift in the international order presenting both obstacles and opportunities. Meanwhile, trouble is brewing closer to home.

Prince Charles pressures his mother to allow him to divorce Diana, presenting a constitutional crisis of the monarchy. Rumors circulate as husband and wife are seen to live increasingly separate lives and, as media scrutiny intensifies, Diana decides to take control of her own narrative, breaking with family protocol to publish a book that undermines public support for Charles and exposes the cracks in the House of Windsor.

Tensions are set to rise further as Mohamed Al Fayed arrives on the scene. Driven by his desire for acceptance of the highest order, he harnesses his self-made wealth and power to try and earn him and his son Dodi a seat at the royal table. See photos of the cast versus the real-life royals.
