Suez Crisis and Melbourne Olympics are 1956. That's where season 1 ends with the building to these events. So season 1 was mainly from 1952 to 1955/56. Diana as potential girlfriend is summer of 1980 and so that's 25 years to coverage.

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.

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

Personally - I think the early glimpse of Diana will be when she is a child and the elder Spencers bump into the Royals and she's just in the background. But it is a way to titillate the audience.

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.

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.

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
Quote:
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.

Quote:
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.

Quote:
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!

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.

EDIT:

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

He played Henry Talbot from Downton Abbey ,not an obvious choice for the role of the late Lord Snowdon.

Benedict Cumberbatch is closer in looks to what 1960s Tony Armstrong Jones looked like if we had our pick of any actor. Vanessa Kirby doesn't really look like Margaret and is way too tall. So the actor playing Tony will have to be tall too to match her.

Toby Stephens played Snowden opposite Lucy Cohu's Margaret in The Queen's Sister back in 2005.

We already knew that it was going to be recast before it aired. Probably already signed up Helen Mirren for the old Queen. Then Helen can have a Emmy to go along with the Oscar and Tony for playing QEII.

I forgot to mention but I finished watching the series in December and thoroughly enjoyed it. I do agree with a poster who commented a while back that they played up the "lonely queen" portrayal, but otherwise, everything was great - I especially loved the costumes! I am looking forward into watching the next series. It would be a shame to see Claire Foy and Vanessa Kirby go if they were recasted because I thought they played their parts brilliantly. Matt Smith could perhaps get away with being in the next series but I can understand why they would recast as the characters of course get older.

The Fun Girls have a very strong opinion about the upcoming season. And they do have a point. The Crown Season Two Makes A Decision That Will Enrage You - Go Fug Yourself.

Portrait of a marriage - Telegraph

funny enough, on Valery's side, there were also rumors of a royal affair but not male and much younger. A book suggested he had an affair with a woman who was referred to as princess of Cardiff. It led to talk he had an affair with Diana. Which was of course denied. He was known as a philanderer, his family didn't livecatvthevpresudebtial residence, but with women.

"Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall is set to be appearing in season three of Netflix drama The Crown, it has been revealed.
A fictionalised version of the royal - better known before her marriage to Prince Charles as Camilla Parker Bowles - will be making her first appearance in third run as the series follows the members of the current Royal Family.
There is no word yet who will be taking on the role of the young Camilla, who proved to be a controversial figure amongst the Royal Family."

When I saw that Tony Snowdon is being played by Matthew Goode all I could think was "Holy crap, Margo marrying Ozymandias?!"
