Margaret's (Vanessa Kirby) romantic relationship with Group Captain Peter Townsend(Ben Miles). Last season also showed the surprising tension and conflict between the newlyweds, Churchill being pressured to step down as Prime Minister and the young Queen’s own issues with her sister Margaret. 

What should viewers expect in Season 2 then? 

In Season 2, the British army will be fighting an illegal war in Egypt, and  a scandal  will take down Queen Elizabeth II's third prime minister, Harold Macmillan. Plus, expect to see Dexter's Michael C. Hall and South African actress Jodi Balfour, who are going to play American President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jackie. And there’s Matthew Goode (Downton Abbey), who will play Princess Margaret's husband Antony Armstrong-Jones, Lord Snowdon. 

 As ‘The Crown’ aims to cover six decades of the royal family’s story line- which of course will require older cast members later on- Season 2 will be Claire Foy’s last season of playing the Queen.
