    Netflix Just Dropped A Teaser Trailer For "The Crown" Season 4 And We Get Our First Glimpse Of Princess Diana

    "Something as important as the monarchy simply cannot be allowed to fail."

    The moment we've all been waiting for is finally here — Netflix has just revealed the release date for the fourth season of The Crown.

    Yep, the big-budget drama returns to our screens on November 15th. But, not content with just giving us that nugget of information, Netflix also dropped a teaser trailer which gave us our first glimpse of Princess Diana and Margaret Thatcher in action.

    The monarchy. Above all else. @GillianA and Emma Corrin join Olivia Colman in Season Four of The Crown, arriving 15th November.

    "Something as important as the monarchy simply cannot be allowed to fail," Olivia Colman says dramatically at the top of the trailer as we get our first shots of Gillian Anderson as Margaret Thatcher.

    Only one thing could upstage that though — the introduction of Emma Corrin as Princess Diana.
