Netflix has released the trailer for Season 5 of The Crown, which foreshadows the fate of Princess Diana.
Martin Bashir (Prasanna Puwanarajah) declares in the trailer “The royal family is in genuine crisis,” while Diana (now played by Elizabeth Debicki) says “People will never understand how it’s really been for me, I never stood a chance.” Diana’s untimely death is not dramatized in the upcoming season, but will occur in the sixth and final season of the Emmy-winning drama that is currently filming.

The Crown returns amid scrutiny surrounding the show’s accuracy in the wake of Queen Elizabeth II’s death and the ascension of King Charles III. Netflix released a statement defending the series earlier this week, saying: “The Crown has always been presented as a drama based on historical events. Series five is a fictional dramatization, imagining what could have happened behind closed doors during a significant decade for the royal family — one that has already been scrutinized and well-documented by journalists, biographers and historians.”
