We're nearly a month away from the most anticipated season of "The Crown" on Netflix. Why? Because Lady Diana Spencer finally makes her debut.
The voiceover in the latest clip is the sermon given by Robert Runcie, Archbishop of Canterbury, who officiated the Prince and Princess of Wales' wedding in 1981.
Charles and Diana had initially met in passing, since he once dated Diana's older sister, Sarah. However, they reportedly didn't connect until after Diana told him she watched him on TV as he mourned the passing of his great uncle, Lord Mountbatten, who was assassinated in 1979 by the IRA.
After that, Charles started courting Diana. Prince Philip then allegedly advised his son to make up his mind about Diana so as not to embarrass her (he was already 32 and she was only 18). So, Charles proposed marriage without really knowing her and they wed. She thought they were madly in love. He thought they could co-exist and meet up for dinner every now and then like old school aristocratic couples.
The rest, they say, is history.
Meanwhile, a caftan-clad Princess Margaret smoked and drank her way around the island of Mustique, then came back to the U.K. for more of the same.
Then there was the Iron Lady herself, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Well, I'm interested to see the marvelous Gillian Anderson portray this formidable politician.
See everyone Nov. 15!
