From Town & Country

The Crown is set to play all the hits in its upcoming season. Actors Emma Corrin and Josh O'Connor have been spotted recreating Princess Diana and Prince Charles's 1983 royal tour of Australia; Corrin was seen restaging key moments from Diana's 1989 solo trip to New York; and now, Corrin was photographed filming one of Diana's famous flights on the Concorde.

In real life, Diana took several trips aboard the Concorde, both with Prince Charles and solo. (Some of the more famous ones include the couple's 1986 trip Vienna, Austria, and Diana's 1989 visit to New York City.) The outfit Corrin wore on set, a red and purple coat, doesn't seem to be an exact replica of one of the Princess's looks, making it harder to nail down exactly which flight they were restaging.

Earlier this year, O'Connor told Vulture to expect a very Charles and Diana-centric season four. "I think this [season], you’re right, it’s very much the Diana and Charles years, and particularly focusing on what happened there and the ramifications of that going forward," the actor said.

He added that filming had almost come to an end—and as the entire cast will be replaced for The Crown's fifth and final season, just as the actors were swapped out after season two, O'Connor's work on the series would soon be over. "We’re almost done now, and then I’m out, so I’m savoring it while I’m still doing it," O'Connor said. "But it’s been a pleasure."

Netflix has revealed that Imelda Staunton—known to many stateside fans as Harry Potter's Dolores Umbridge—will take over from Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth in seasons five and six, while Elizabeth Debicki will play Princess Diana, and Lesley Manville will play Princess Margaret. Further casting details have yet to be revealed, but should surface in due time.
