Season 4 Ending Recap
By the end of ‘The Crown’s fourth season, Margaret Thatcher has resigned from her position as prime minister due to parliamentary scrutiny of her leadership. Thatcher ultimately decides to step down as Prime Minister and is awarded the Order of Merit for her service, despite the fact that she attempts to get the backing of the Queen.
While this is happening, Charles and Diana’s marriage is becoming more tense, leading him to consider divorcing Diana. When Diana gets back from her trip to New York, he shows his annoyance toward her.
Charles is chastised by the Queen for his immaturity and is forbidden from divorcing or separating from his wife. Diana is reassured by Prince Philip that she is not the only one going through hardship. He also counsels her to concentrate on serving Elizabeth and to avoid letting her marriage fall apart.
Anticipated Plotline For Season 5 Of The Crown
It is anticipated that the fifth season will continue from where the fourth season left off with Charles and Diana. It’s possible that several different things will contribute to the demise of their marriage while Diana rises to fame and becomes a beloved figure in the public eye.
The season will likely go into great depth about their contentious divorce. According to rumors, the show will reenact the well-known BBC Panorama interview that Diana conducted where she talked about her husband’s adulterous affair.
Additionally, we may anticipate that Diana’s life after her divorce will be addressed in the fifth chapter. Season 5 will also feature scenes from John Major’s time as prime minister of the UK.
