The Crown season 4 premiered on November 15, and its cast joined the celebration through an improvised red carpet launch.
While the coronavirus pandemic put a massive strain on how regular premieres should be, the cast did not seem bothered. Refusing to be defeated by the virus, the stars of the royal drama created their respective premieres at home.
With an advertising board as a backdrop and a square-cut red carpet below, they posed and showed off their glam. The photos came out stunning, as if they were having the real event anyway.
In its official social media account, Netflix shared the images saying, “If one cannot go to a premiere, the premiere must go to one (?).”
“The Crown series 4 at-home premiere is underway.”
The Crown Season 4 At-home Red Carpet Premiere
In its truest royal form, Helen Bonham-Carter stole the show as Princess Margaret, donning a black dress and improvised crown. She was accompanied on the red carpet by two adorable escorts, both of which shared poses like a pro.
Olivia Colman who plays Queen Elizabeth, also struck a pose and looked fittingly regal and understated for her private premiere.
On the other hand, Emma Corrin who is joining this season as Princess Diana sports a trendy blouse and pants. She plays a critical role in the series, in time when problems among the royal family’s relationships began to surface.
Actor Josh O’Connor, who plays Prince Charles for the last time in season 4 had his own premiere moment too. Appearing rather as serious, he puts on a stern face as he poses in front of the camera.
Season 4 will tackle Charles and Diana’s initial romance and courtship up to the events leading to their eventual wedding. We already know what’s gonna happen to their short-lived romance, but we still wanna see its portrayal in the series.
Emerald Fennell who plays Camilla Parker-Bowles, Charles’ second wife was also snapped for the home premiere.
The Crown creator Peter Morgan joined actress and partner Gillian Anderson who plays Margaret Thatcher in series 4. Fans can also look forward to her as the first female British Prime Minister, whose opinions don’t always sit well with the Queen.
A virtual screening of the first two episodes shortly followed after the said home premiere.
The Crown season 4 is now available for streaming on Netflix.
