The action of this final season will take place at the turn of the 2000s and will thus largely revolve around the two teenagers, who have had to overcome the death of their mother. In 2001, Prince William began his studies at the University of St Andrew, in Scotland, where he notably met his future wife Kate Middleton. At the same time, his little brother was in the throes of a crisis, caught on several occasions in the act of consuming narcotics and alcohol by the paparazzi, he had to be sent to rehab by his father, who was trying to appreciate his mistress, Camilla Parker Bowles, whom he finally married in 2005. As for Elizabeth II, she will be busy trying to stop a lawsuit against Diana’s bodyguard, who allegedly stole valuables from her after her dead. Fearing having to testify, and therefore being forced to divulge compromising information on the relations between Lady Di and the rest of the royal family, she has involved herself in this case directly with the justice system, and this will certainly be part of the plot of the last season of The Crown.
