Colman played the role of Queen Elizabeth II for seasons 3 and 4, taking over from Claire Foy, who was Queen in Seasons 1 and 2.


“I will do my utmost to maintain the very high standard that they set,” she said. “Hopefully I look calm, collected and capable. My stomach, meanwhile, is doing somersaults.” Imelda said in a video.

The new season will return with an all-new cast playing the British royal family, including Imelda as Queen Elizabeth, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret, Dominic West as Prince Charles, Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana, and Olivia Williams as Camilla Parker Bowles. Jonny Lee Miller will also appear as Prime Minister John Major, who served as Britain’s PM in 1990-97.

This will be the third and final cast cycle for 'The Crown'.

As per the Variety, ''Season 5 will tackle the early 1990s, including, it is thought, the Queen’s so-called “annus horribilis” in 1992, during which three of her four children separated from or divorced their partners — including Prince Charles and Diana — and the family was dogged by numerous scandals, such as the revelation of Charles’s affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles and the publication of Prince Andrew’s wife Sarah Ferguson sunbathing topless with a male friend.''
