The trailer has landed for Netflix hit The Crown's second series and it sees the royal family struggling to adjust to changing times.

While the first series was set during WWII, the second takes a leap to the swinging sixties but Claire Foy and Matt Smith both return as The Queen and Prince Philip respectively.

The ten episode season will also see Princess Margaret (Vanessa Kirby) romanced by photographer Lord Snowden (played by Matth3ew Goode).

The series also sees the return of writer Peter Morgan and director Stephen Daldry.

Here's the official synopsis from Netflix:

"Beginning with soldiers in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces fighting an illegal war in Egypt, and ending with the downfall of her third Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan after a devastating scandal, the second season bears witness to the end of the age of deference, and ushers in the revolutionary era of the 1960s.

"The Crown continues to chronicle the major political and global events that have defined and shaped the second half of the twentieth century - a series that is unprecedented in its scale, ambition and creative vision."

The second season launches on Netflix on December 8.
