The Crown Season 2 Trailer Highlights Tension Between Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip

The preview for the forthcoming season of Netflix's British royal drama also offers an extended look at Matthew Goode's Lord Snowdon and a glimpse of Jodi Balfour's Jackie Kennedy.
Netflix has debuted the official trailer for the second season of its British royal drama The Crown.
In the preview, viewers get an extended look at new castmember Matthew Goode, who plays Antony Armstrong-Jones, better known as Lord Snowdon, the society photographer and husband to Vanessa Kirby's Princess Margaret. The trailer also offers a glimpse of Jodi Balfour's Jackie Kennedy, seen alongside Claire Foy's Queen Elizabeth II.
Several scenes feature Goode's Antony and Kirby's Margaret together, with Margaret declaring at one point, "I know who I am, a woman for the modern age, free to live, free to love and free to break away."
The trailer also highlights the ongoing tension between Queen Elizabeth and Matt Smith's Prince Philip, last seen being sent to Australia.
The queen is shown telling Philip, "This restlessness of yours, it has to be a thing of the past. The monarchy's too fragile. You keep telling me yourself. One more scandal, one more national embarrassment and it would all be over."
She's also shown being confronted by her uncle, the Duke of Windsor (Alex Jennings), who famously abdicated the throne and asks her, "Who's done more damage to the monarchy? Me with my willfulness or you…with your inhumanity."
The trailer ends with Elizabeth shooting back at the Duke of Windsor, "There is no possibility of my forgiving you. The question is: How on Earth can you forgive yourself?"
The second season begins with the British Armed Forces fighting an illegal war in Egypt and ends with the downfall of the Queen's third prime minister, Harold Macmillan, after a devastating scandal. The season explores the end of the age of deference and beginning of the 1960s revolutions.
In addition to Goode, Michael C. Hall joins the cast in season two, playing John F. Kennedy.
The Crown's 10-episode first season premiered to rave reviews and it went on to win two Golden Globes and a pair of Screen Actors Guild awards, among other accolades, before winning three Emmys.
While Foy and Smith return as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, respectively, John Lithgow will not be reprising his award-winning turn as Winston Churchill in the show's second season, which was announced before the first season premiered last November.
The series, created by The Queen's Peter Morgan and based on his award-winning play The Audience, plans to follow Queen Elizabeth II through the present day, with new actors playing the main characters at different stages of their lives. Season two will mark the end of Foy's run as the young royal.
"The idea is to do this over six decades, in six seasons presumably, and make the whole show over eight to 10 years," Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said on a panel last November.
Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter at The Crown's first-season premiere in New York last fall, Morgan said of season two, "It's the post-Churchill era. But it's still a very particular era of Britain. It's not yet what I would call modern Britain. That would start in the mid-'60s."
The next batch of episodes will also feature more about Prince Philip's background as he embarks on a world tour, Smith told THR at the first-season premiere event.
"We learn a lot more about Prince Philip," Smith explained. "A lot about his past. He had a very interesting past, Philip. Quite a mad past. And we go into that in a lot of detail."
