The Crown Season 6 plot: What will happen next season?

The Crown’s fifth season ended in 1997, with Princess Diana heading to St Tropez with Mohamed Al-Fayed after her divorce from Prince Charles, months before her tragic death in a car accident. Season 6 is set to pick up from here, covering until at least 2001.

In an article with Deadline, a source from the set of The Crown made it clear that the car crash – which killed Diana and her partner Dodi Fayed in August 1997 – would not actually be shown on screen. Instead, we will see “the car leaving The Ritz after midnight with paparazzi in pursuit and then the aftermath with the British Ambassador to France swinging into action with the Foreign Office and then the subsequent constitutional aftermath.

“While we’re calmly carrying on, it’s fair to acknowledge that there’s a certain anxiety – a palpable sense of being slightly on edge. I mean, there’s bombshell sensitivity surrounding this one.”

Said aftermath will include Prince Charles retrieving Diana’s body, and Mohamed Al-Fayed experiencing racism when claiming his son’s casket. The show will also depict how Diana’s sons handle her death, and then Prince William’s budding relationship with Kate Middleton, after the two meet at St. Andrews.
