The Crown: teaser

A new teaser for The Crown has cleverly introduced Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II through an updated Royal Mail stamp.

This launches on Sunday, November 17.

The third season of The Crown sees a new guard sweep into Downing Street, as Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) and her family struggle to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing Britain. From cold-war paranoia, through to the jet-set and the space age – the exuberance of the 1960s and the long hangover of the 1970s – Elizabeth and the Royals must adapt to a new, more liberated, but also more turbulent world.

Written by Peter Morgan, The Crown also stars Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Tobias Menzies as The Duke of Edinburgh, Josh O’Connor as Prince Charles, Erin Doherty as Princess Anne, Ben Daniels as Lord Snowdon, Jason Watkins as Prime Minister Harold Wilson and Charles Dance as Lord Mountbatten.


  1. Wasn’t there enough drama in her early years to continue the story ? I really enjoyed enjoyed the first 2 seasons but I think it was the curiosity and intrigue of a young person being thrusted into the spotlight… season 3 may lose me

    • I had the opposite reaction to Season 2. I thought far too much emphasis was placed on other characters and The Queen was sidelined. Still, I’m looking forward to this.
