What’s the Plot of Season Five of the Crown?
The Crown covers a decade of royal history per season. Season 4 closed with Elizabeth berating Charles for his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles and banning a divorce. Diana was also reproed having an experience, and Philip warned her to show a united front with Charles.
- Season five will investigate Charles and Diana’s marriage, which terminated in 1996 after a four-year separation and was publicly publicized.
- According to The Independent, season five will include Diana’s 1995 interview with Martin Bashir, in which she spoke honestly about Charles’ affair and remarked, “There were three of us in this marriage, so it was crowded.”
- Bashir was ultimately found guilty of using phony documents to gain the interview, but he’s “immensely pleased” with how it allowed Diana to speak out about the royal family.
- It’s unknown if the season will feature Diana’s 1997 automobile crash.
- Khalid Abdalla’s casting as Dodi suggests that we’ll see Dodi and Diana’s whirlwind connection after Diana’s divorce. Pair was in Paris when Diana died.
- Each season focuses on Elizabeth’s relationship with the prime minister; this season, it’s John Major, who served from 1990 to 1997 and was succeeded by Tony Blair.
Elizabeth also celebrated her 40th year on the throne in 1992. However, she called it her “annus horribilis” (terrible year) due to marital difficulties, Windsor Castle catching fire, and Charles and Diana separating.

How Be Wilbe Be Will Princess Dianaayed in Season Five of the Crown?
Season five will undoubtedly center on Princess Diana, although there has already been controversy surrounding how she was portrayed. Jemima Khan, a British television producer and close friend of Diana, was reportedly consulted on the fifth season, according to Vulture.
- Before abandoning the project, Khan claimed she worked on the scripts with Morgan from September 2020 to February 2021.
- As has not always been the case, Khan remarked, “It was essential to me that the final years of my friend’s life be portrayed accurately and with compassion.”
- However, she said that “our co-writing agreement was not honored, and when I realized that particular plot would not necessarily be conveyed as politely or compassionately as I had wanted, I requested that all my contributions are erased from the series, and I denied a credit.”
Fans will have to wait and see if The Crown does Diana’s legacy justice because the program has previously been accused of altering specifics or inflating specific incidents.
