Season five of “The Crown” on Netflix had its London debut on Wednesday.
Out of respect, the cast of the series, which is based on the life of the late Queen, dressed largely black.
Elizabeth Debicki was seen tenderly taking care of her on-screen sons in a heartwarming scene. View each picture.
The cast of Netflix’s “The Crown” season five gathered in London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane to celebrate the premiere of the latest episode.
The Prince and Princess of Wales’ separation, the Windsor Castle fire, the dissolution of two other royal marriages, and other traumatic events are all shown in Peter Morgan’s most recent episode of the historical drama. The story begins up in the early 1990s.
In a velvet suit and tie set, Imelda Staunton cut a svelte appearance.
The costumes she would be seen wearing in season five as she assumes the role of the Queen, who infamously appeared in pants only a few times in her life, were so different from this one.
Dominic West also selected a lavish velvet tuxedo for the occasion.
Both seemed to have chosen their materials with the intention of adding a little bit of a regal touch to the evening’s events.
It has also been rumoured that the stars wore predominantly black as a tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth, whose life the series is based on and who passed away on September 8 at the age of 96.
Elizabeth Debicki dazzled in all-black for her role as Princess Diana in the next season.
On the red carpet, the actress looked elegant in a black Dior sleeveless gown.
She was accompanied by her two young co-stars, Timothee Sambor, 12, and Teddy Hawley, 7.
Alongside her on-screen sons, Debicki posed.
The two, who play the youthful Princes Harry and William, were seen by Debicki as they posed for pictures.
In the next season, Hawley and Sambor both make their acting debuts, and it’s probable that the glitzy occasion was their first time walking a red carpet.
Debicki also had verbal exchanges with her fictional mother-in-law.
The new episodes also look at how the Al-Fayeds and the royal family’s lifestyles initially came into contact.
In addition, Gillian Anderson, who played Margaret Thatcher in season four, was there to show her support for the occasion.
Anderson rocked the red carpet in a black sleeveless gown even though she did not feature in the newest episodes.
The Queen Mother’s on-screen daughter, Marica Warren, also attended the occasion.
She added a purse in the shape of a crown to complete her red carpet ensemble.
