The Crown Season 4 premiered on Netflix on November 15, 2020. It was one of the most anticipated series of the year that has finally made its way to the streaming giant. The teaser, stills, trailer of the fourth season of The Crown had dropped the hint that it would not only highlight on the reign of Queen Elizabeth II (Olivia Colman), but it would also focus on the tension between the Queen and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson), bring forth the royal romance of Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor) and Lady Diana Spencer, and much more.

Hindustan Times - This is an emotionally rich season, perhaps my favourite of the show so far. And beneath its resplendent exterior is raging relevance. Through Thatcher, creator Peter Morgan makes bold statements about contemporary politics, and the authoritarian figures in charge of it. And do not forget the trifecta of female leads at the centre -- equals, and in many ways superior to the men around them -- an uncommon sight on television if there ever was one.

The Indian Express - It is Emma Corrin, who is the star of The Crown season 4. Casting Corrin, a newcomer, as Princess Diana was an astute decision, and it shows. The fresh-faced actor captures the nuances of the character (like Anderson) without doing or even attempting a direct impression. This is a full-bodied portrayal, and a lot of praise must also go to the director and writer. We can never know for sure how Diana really was in person, but like with every other major character in The Crown, Diana is written with empathy.

Firstpost - The season makes for some delightful episodic arcs such as the most watched wedding of the previous century; Charles and Diana’s Royal visit to Australia; the security breach at Buckingham Palace; the tragic, downward spiral of Princess Margaret; (a criminally underused Helena Bonham Carter) the much talked about rift between The Queen and the PM; each of which have been craftily conceptualised and lovingly essayed.

Pinkvilla - Just like the previous seasons, The Crown gets its casting spot on for characters of Princess Diana, Margaret thatcher, Michael Fagan and even the Queen's younger sons Prince Andrew and Prince Edward. Actors Olivia Colman, Josh O'Connor, Tobias Menezes, Helena Bonham Carter and Erin Doherty seem to be naturals as they reprise their roles and continue to dish out impressive performances.
