The tragic royal moments The Crown MUST cover in season 5: From Diana's death to failed marriages and Dunblane massacre

THE Crown season four has only just been released but already fans are wondering what tragic moments will be covered in the next season.

The fifth series will be starting from 1992, and the 90s was a very eventful decade for the royals.

While the first four series covered a lot of major events during Queen Elizabeth's reign, it has come under fire for missing some key events.

The Crown fans revealed they were "gutted" season four did not cover the attempted kidnapping of Princess Anne on March 20, 1974.

While there's a lot of ground to cover in the upcoming series, here are the tragic royal moments MUST address:

1. The many failed marriages of the Queen's children

This decade was when Princess Anne officially divorced Captain Mark Phillips.

It was also when Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson announced that they were splitting, followed by some photos of the Duchess of York on holiday with American businessman John Bryan.

This decade was also when Prince Charles and Princess Diana finally announced their separation, and their divorce was not finalised until August 28, 1996.

There were of course much more fallout from the Charles and Diana split.

2. Fire at Windsor Castle

The Queen's home on her private weekends, a devastating fire ripped through Windsor Castle n 20 November, 1992.

It destroyed 115 rooms, including nine State Rooms.

The fire started in Queen Victoria's Private Chapel, after a faulty spotlight ignited a curtain near the altar.

3. Diana's shocking Panorama interview

Diana managed to record a tell-all interview with Martin Bashir of BBC's Panorama program.

The absolutely groundbreaking interview would blow the lid of the royal institution and undoubtedly forced the Queen's hand to allow the divorce of Prince Charles and Princess Diana.

The explosive interview is back in the headlines after the launch of a judge-led independent investigation into the BBC over allegations Diana was duped by Martin Bashir into making her do the tell-all interview 25 years ago.

4. The Dunblane massacre

The deadliest mass shooting in British history happened when Thomas Hamilton shot 15 school children and one teacher dead before turning th gun on himself.

The shooting in Scotland rocked the nation and saw Queen Elizabeth visit the school in the aftermath of the tragedy.

Season three included the Queen visiting Aberfan after a mine collapse, so it's likely the Dunblane massacre will be included in the upcoming series.

5. Diana's funeral

It was announced in August that Elizabeth Debicki, 30, would take over the role of Diana in series five, which leads up to her tragic death, aged just 36, in the Paris car crash of 1997.

Diana's funeral was one of the biggest televised events in history, with 32.10 million people Brits tuning in and further 2.5billion watching worldwide.

From her brother Earl Spencer's scathing speech against the Royal Family to Elton John's stirring performance of a Candle in the Wind, it is surely an unmissable event for the next series.

According to Deadline, filming will not kick off until June 2021, meaning the series won't hit our screens until 2022.

That production break was apparently always on the cards and has nothing to do with the coronavirus pandemic, which has halted filming on many programmes across the world.
