A royal proclamation: The first trailer for season three of Netflix's The Crown is finally here. In it, we get a good, hard glance at the grim-looking Olivia Colman in full Queen Elizabeth garb.

Netflix recently announced the premiere date for the junior season of the series: November 17. Here, your first look at the show, in all its white-gloved glory.

Besides Colman, who won the Oscar for Best Actress this year for her role in The Favourite, we'll see Helena Bonham Carter take over for Vanessa Kirby as the rebellious Princess Margaret.

Josh O’Connor (Florence Foster Jenkins) and Marion Bailey (Allied) will take on the roles of Prince Charles and the Queen Mother, respectively, while Pennyworth's Emma Corin will play a minor role as Princess Diana in season three (and take on the much bigger role in season four, when Diana is being courted by Prince Charles). Call the Midwife's Emerald Fennell will play Camilla Parker Bowles.

The one addition to the cast we're most excited for, though, is Sex Education's Gillian Anderson as "Iron Lady" Margaret Thatcher.

Season three will span the years of 1964 to 1977 of QEII's reign. The third season looks to be a bit more sinister for our monarch, judging from Colman's chilly stare at the end of the teaser.

Now, by royal decree, we order November to hurry up already.
