Starring Academy Award® and BAFTA® winner Olivia Colman (The Favourite, TVs Fleabag, The Night Manager) as Queen Elizabeth II, The Crown: Season 3 is available on Blu-ray and DVD on 2nd November 2020 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
A new guard sweeps into Downing Street, as Queen Elizabeth II 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 - the Royals must adapt to a new, more liberated, but also more turbulent world.
Written by Peter Morgan (The Queen, The Last King of Scotland), The Crown: Season 3 also stars Helena Bonham Carter (The Kings Speech, Harry Potter series) as Princess Margaret, Tobias Menzies (TV's Outlander, Game of Thrones) as The Duke of Edinburgh, Josh O'Connor (Emma, TV's The Durrells) as Prince Charles, Ben Daniels (TV's House of Cards) as Lord Snowdon and Charles Dance (Gosford Park, TV's Game of Thrones) as Lord Mountbatten.
The Crown: Season 3 covers the time period between 1964 and 1977, beginning with Harold Wilson's election as prime minister and ending with the Silver Jubilee of Elizabeth II.
Events depicted include the unmasking of the Queen's art adviser Sir Anthony Blunt as a Soviet spy, Harold Wilson and Edward Heath's respective times as prime minister, the Aberfan disaster, the Apollo 11 moon landing, the 1969 Investiture of Prince Charles, the death of the Duke of Windsor, the death and state funeral of Winston Churchill, and Princess Margaret's eight-year affair with baronet and gardening expert Roddy Llewellyn and suicide attempt that leads to the Princess's divorce from Antony Armstrong-Jones in 1978. US President Lyndon B. Johnson and Camilla Shand are also introduced.
