The Crown: Netflix to release first part of the final season on Thursday

The final season of Netflix's "The Crown," which chronicles the events of the late 1990s in the British royal family, is set to be released in two parts.

The first four episodes of season six will launch on Thursday, covering Princess Diana's relationship with Dodi Fayed, her death in 1997, and the aftermath.

The season has been met with criticism over historical inaccuracies, with royal historian Kelly Swaby highlighting viewers' expectations for accuracy due to the show's high production quality.

The show has always been presented as a drama based on historical events, and this season is no exception. Elizabeth Debicki and Dominic West star as Diana and Prince Charles, respectively, depicting their first summer apart as a divorced couple.

The series will also show the media attention surrounding Diana and Dodi's relationship and the fatal car crash in Paris.

The second half of the season, releasing on December 14, will cover significant events like the Queen's Golden Jubilee, Prince Charles and Camilla's wedding, and the courtship of Prince William and Kate Middleton at the University of St Andrews. Imelda Staunton returns as Queen Elizabeth II, with Jonathan Pryce as the Duke of Edinburgh.

The season is expected to take artistic license, particularly in private events, and tread carefully since most of the portrayed individuals are still alive. The portrayal of sensitive events like Diana's death has been carefully considered due to the ongoing impact on her sons, Princes William and Harry.

Ed McVey, Luther Ford, and Meg Bellamy will play the roles of Princes William and Harry, and Kate Middleton, respectively, in the second half of the season, marking their first major acting roles.
