Two women running Britain, "perhaps that is precisely what this country needs", Queen Elizabeth II (Olivia Colman) says in a new trailer for the fourth season of The Crown.

Netflix has released the new trailer for The Crown - and New Zealand is in there.

Britain's first female prime minister, Baroness Thatcher, creates conflict with the Commonwealth after leading the country into the Falklands War, only increasing friction with the palace.

"The Crown" Season four begins streaming Sunday, November 15 on Netflix. They are very much defined by the Second World War, by a sense of a sense of frugality, hard work, commitment, Christianity and so much more.

The arrival of both Thatcher and Diana is a key moment in The Crown and seems set to establish the fourth series as one focused squarely on the women of modern British history.

The show has been one of Netflix's most high-ticket assets, with a colossal budget in the region of $13m (£10m) per episode.

The Queen asks: "And who is the senior?", before Baroness Thatcher replies coldly: "I am, ma'am".

Lady Diana Spencer is chosen as a suitable bride, with the couple marrying in a seemingly fairytale wedding in July 1981. You can already feel the tension through the screen as Thatcher begins to make waves and Prince Charles finds himself embroiled in quite the romantic conundrum (we didn't miss that little scene in the vehicle with Camilla).

The Crown's latest trailer takes royal fans right into the middle of Queen Elizabeth's royal rift with Princess Diana and Margaret Thatcher. Diana tells the queen: "All I want is to be loved, that's what any of us want from you", while Charles asks, "What does one have to do to get some kindness in this family".

Although their replacements have not been announced yet, this will also be the final season for Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Erin Doherty as Princess Anne, Emerald Fennell as Camilla Parker Bowles, Marion Bailey as the Queen Mother, and Charles Dance as Lord Mountbatten.
