They are a happy couple, and their relationship captures the attention of the tabloids as they try to get every waking moment of their union on camera.

A new actress will take on the role for The Crown Season 5. 

But that's not to say it will be all of the happiness for them on the fourth season. There's a wild screaming match included in the trailer to keep fans on their toes. 

The trailer also gives us our first look at a new feud for Elizabeth and Philip, as well as Gillian Anderson in the role of Margaret Thatcher. 

If you were worried about Anderson in the role, then the mere glimpse of her as the former Prime Minister of the UK should put your concerns to bed.

"As the 1970s are drawing to a close, Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) and her family find themselves preoccupied with safeguarding the line of succession by securing an appropriate bride for Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor), who is still unmarried at 30," reads the official logline.

"As the nation begins to feel the impact of divisive policies introduced by Britain's first female Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson), tensions arise between her and the Queen which only grow worse as Thatcher leads the country into the Falklands War, generating conflict within the Commonwealth," the logline continues.

"While Charles’ romance with a young Lady Diana Spencer (Emma Corrin) provides a much-needed fairytale to unite the British people, behind closed doors, the Royal family is becoming increasingly divided."
