The first footage of Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II is here.
Netflix dropped a teaser trailer for season three of season 3 of its British royal family drama and we finally get to see Colam as the Queen.
The trailer cleverly features the transition of the cast into their older versions, portrayed by a set of new actors by presenting a scene in which the Queen assesses her newest portrait.
“Everyone is delighted with the new profile, ma’am, which they feel to be an elegant reflection of Her Majesty’s transition from young woman to…” one of her advisors says until he’s cut off by the monarch who says, “Old bat?”
“Settled sovereign… just the tiniest changes,” he continues.
“A great many changes. Nothing one can do about it, one just has to get on with it,” she then declares.
Colman took over as Queen Elizabeth II from Claire Foy. Tobias Menzies took over the role of the Duke of Edinburgh from Matt Smith and Helena Bonham Carter took over as Princess Margaret from Vanessa Kirby.
Season 3 of The Crown will launch November 17 on Netflix.
