As the 40th anniversary of her accession to the throne approaches, Queen Elizabeth II (Imelda Staunton) reflects on an era that included nine prime ministers, the rise of television for the masses and the demise of the British Empire. But new challenges are emerging on the horizon. The collapse of the Soviet Union and Hong Kong’s transfer of sovereignty point to a fundamental change in the international system and challenges and opportunities for the monarchy…but new problems are emerging not far from home. Prince Charles (Dominic West) pushes his mother to agree to Diana (Elizabeth Debicki’s) divorce, setting the stage for a constitutional crisis in the monarchy. The increasingly separated life between husband and wife is fueling a lot of gossip. With media scrutiny intensifying, Diana decides to take control of the situation and break family rules by publishing a book that threatens public support for Carlo and exposes the differences within the Windsor House. Tensions rise when Muhammad al-Fayed (Saleem Daou) enters the scene who, motivated by a desire to be accepted by the nobles, takes advantage of the wealth and power he has acquired single-handedly to secure a seat at the royal table for him and his son Dodi (Khaled Abdullah).
