Just last month, we saw a teaser of Olivia Colman taking over as Queen Elizabeth II in the next installment of The Crown. Over the weekend (October 19), a feature trailer was released, where we learn even monarchs have self-doubt, with Her Majesty saying, “On days like today, ask yourself, ‘In the time I’ve been on the throne, what have I actually achieved?'”
Set to a moody adaptation of Bob Dylan‘s “The Times are a Changin’,” the below explores the answer to that question:
While there’s no absolute answer to the above, the Queen comes to a resolution, saying at the end of the clip, “We have all made sacrifices and suppressed who we are. It is not a choice. It’s a duty.”
And, stating the obvious, Queen Elizabeth II is the current Head of State. Watching a docuseries about her earlier life, it’s almost like… taking a peek into her diary.
Colman is joined by an all-star cast, with Tobias Menzies playing her husband Prince Philip and Helena Bonham Carter as her sister Princess Margaret.
You can look for season three of The Crown over at Netflix on November 17.
