Work on season 5 of The Crownis well underway, and Elizabeth Debicki and Dominic West are stepping into their roles as Princess Diana and Prince Charles as the next season of the Netflix series sees the royal family deal with the issues that plagued them in the '90s.
In new photos released from the set, Debicki and West, who took over the roles from Emma Corrin and Josh O’Connor, respectively, are seen recreating their infamous family vacation to Italy, alongside sons Prince William and Prince Harry in honor of the couple's 10-year wedding anniversary in 1991.
In the photos, Debicki wears a colorful floral dress and sunglasses while West sports a crisp tan suit as the pair waves to the public atop a ship set out to sea in the Mediterranean.
The photos were taken during filming on the Christina O yacht, previously owned by Jackie Kennedy and her husband, Aristotle Onassis, in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
Season 5 is set to chronicle the breakdown of Charles and Diana's marriage and their eventual separation as well as Diana's tragic death in 1997.
"I truly, truly am a fan, and I have been since season 1. My very dear friend, Vanessa Kirby, played Princess Margaret in the first two seasons so beautifully. That's why I started watching it, really, and I remember watching it thinking, 'This is remarkable,'" she said at the time. "Everything people do on that screen is just incredible acting. For me to even start to swim in that ocean is incredible. And obviously Princess Diana was a truly profoundly remarkable, unique woman, so it's nothing but an honor to be asked to play her."
Season 5 of The Crown is set to hit Netflix in November 2022.
