Lizzie gets tough in first trailer for The Crown season 2

Get ready for some controversy, as the first trailer for The Crown season two shows how it will delve into one of the darker periods of both Queen Elizabeth’s reign and her marriage to Prince Philip.

This will be Claire Foy’s second and final run as the character, before stepping down to welcome an older actress in season three. Judging from what we can see here, it will be an impressive and memorable turn, with some good drama to sink her teeth into.

The Crown returns to Netflix on December 8th. Watch the trailer below.
