The Crown: Season 6, Part 2 Review

Netflix has finished off one of it’s most anticipated and highly revered original series in The Crown.

The final season, which was split into two parts, spent the first four episodes that made up part one, covering the world-altering death of Princess Diana (Elizabeth Debicki).

Now in part two, a few months have passed and William (Ed McVey) is still adjusting to a world without his mother, giving Prince Charles (Dominic West) a chance to shine parentally, but it won’t be easy.

These final six episodes cover a range of historical events including the courtship of Prince William and Kate Middleton (Meg Bellamy) at university in Scotland, the death of Princess Margaret (Lesley Manville) as the result of a stroke, and the marriage of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles (Olivia Williams).

In the wise hands of creator Peter Morgan, the series’ final outing also sees our much-loved Queen (Imelda Staunton) reflect on her reign and look ahead to a time when her successors will take the throne, with the help of her beloved Prince Philip (Jonathan Pryce).

There are some true highlights this season, notably the series’ last three outings, giving the cast a chance to shine before a perfect final outing. The fresh talent of McVey and Bellamy also power through the final six episodes as this series comes to a close.

The Crown delivers a return to form in the final outing and it’s a fitting send-off for such a much-loved series.
