Netflix has revealed new pictures of Gillian Anderson as British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and Emma Corrin as Princess Diana ahead of the release of Season 4 of “The Crown” November 15.
In one photo, Anderson, 52, is seen wearing a blue suit while standing on the stairs of 10 Downing St., the UK government’s headquarters.
Other photos show Corrin, 24, dressed to the nines as Di, as paparazzi crowd the young royal. Another still with co-star Josh O’Connor, 30, as Prince Charles shows the new couple walking the red carpet flanked by shutterbugs.
Netflix teased what Season 4 will cover, implying there’s some tension ahead for the palace — as fans and Anglophiles are well aware. “Change is coming. 15th November,” the streaming giant tweeted.
“The Crown” is treading some dramatic waters, as then-Lady Diana Spencer is about to be injected into the royal family. History has shown that this moment caused tremors in Kensington Palace, including Charles and Diana’s well-documented tumultuous relationship before her untimely death in 1997.
The show first teased Diana’s arrival back in August, after Corrin was seen on set in January, sporting the beloved royal’s signature hairdo.
Hairstylist Sam McKnight, Princess Diana’s personal stylist for seven years until her death, re-created the ‘do on Corrin for the Netflix show.
“It felt weird,” McKnight — who originated Diana’s trademark tousled crop cut in 1990 — told British Vogue, adding he initially questioned taking on the role to re-create his former client’s hair at first.
“To be honest, Emma is playing Diana before I even met her, so it felt fine,” he said. “We took a nod to the photos of Diana [in that period] and made a little pastiche of it.”
