Things are a bit rocky for the British royal household for the time being. We can’t think about that our collective obsession with Netflix’s The Crown helps the scenario.

Still, issues have been pretty tame to date. However, when Season Four ofThe Crown debuts later this 12 months, all bets are off. After all, we will probably be shifting into the period of the late Princess Diana and Prince Charles’ marriage — and everyone knows how that turned out.

Despite the truth that the present airs out all the royal household’s soiled laundry, Queen Elizabeth gave the present a refined shoutout throughout her current Christmas speech.
