The producers already said that Diana would appear at the end of season 3. End of season 3 definitely would not be Diana as a little girl. Maybe as a young teenager when Charles dates Sarah Spencer that was 1977.

Diana died in 1997 - so she was only in the family for about 18 years - thus if a decade per series (series 1 was 1947 - 1956ish) which is why I say she will be there for about 1.5 series only.

Philip and the Queen have to get back on the same page to make Andrew. Margaret meets Tony. That's probably all season 2. There probably will be a montage or time jump to get to the late 60s early 70s for the investiture of the Prince of Wales and maybe another to get to the silver jubilee and Thatcher.
Suez and the Melbourne Olympics would be no more than one episode with most of the focus on the Queen and Suez and maybe a scene or two with Philip on his 6 months trip down under

Then 9 episodes to marry off Margaret, half Andrew and Edward and even send Charles to Australia in 1966 with their tour Down Under as family or Charles investiture as the end of series 2.

The cast is changing after 2, so some sort of speed through the early sixties I would think will happen to get Charles and Anne as young adult instead of preteens and Queen and Philip as middle aged
I would expect the third series to really start with Charles and Anne's early love life in the 1970s, the Jubilee and the assassination of Mountbatten ending with Charles meeting Diana.

There will still have to have some time jumping/montages like we saw in season 1 where it starts in 1948 for the wedding and then a quick montage to 1951 in the same episode. A lot of season 1 was heavy on the Churchill. I can't imagine a heavy focus on the PMs again until Thatcher.

Why Netflix bet big on 'The Crown,' its Golden Globe winner - Business Insider
Last month at the UBS media conference in New York, Netflix's content boss Ted Sarandos explained a simple reason why Netflix bet big on "The Crown": Everyone knows the Queen.

"Queen Elizabeth is probably the most famous human being on the planet right now," he said. The world knows the history of her, the monarchy, and her family.
Of course she is. She is the most popular, most iconic and most famous head of state (many would say person) in the world.

Though Sarandos didn't characterize her like this, in some ways she is the biggest reality star on the planet, except most people don't know much about her private life. For Netflix, it was an opportunity to tell that inner story.
Reality star? Don't be ridiculous.

But all the glitz and talent that went into producing "The Crown" rested on that one truth, that people just really like watching, reading, and hearing about Queen Elizabeth.
I agree!
The Queen is the most wonderful, forgiving, non judgmental person I know. Sarah Ferguson speaking in 2011.

There was a scene in the first episode (or the second I can't recall) that a lady in the crowd looked so much like the Queen Mother, and I thought it was really her, and then the "other" Queen Mother came and I was a bit disappointed.


I found the lady I was talking about. She looks so much like the Queen Mother, I really thought she was her...
