As was reported a couple of weeks ago, Gillian Anderson has been confirmed to star as Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the fourth season of 'The Crown'.
The lavish Netflix series, which is returning for its third season next month, will jump forward to the '80s eventually for the fourth season and take on the likes of the Falklands War, the assassination of Lord Mountbatten, and the marriage of Prince Charles and Princess Diana.
The full trailer for the third season (which was posted to Netflix Japan's YouTube account and then taken down after a few hours) revealed Josh O'Connor as Prince Charles, but seeing as how the fourth season is a while away yet, we'll have to make do with blurry set photos for Gillian Anderson as Margaret Thatcher.
Take a look.

The scene, which was filmed in Spain, was a recreation of the 1985 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in the Bahamas, where the Nassau Accord was agreed. The Nassau Accord, for you history buffs out there, called on the South African government to dismantle apartheid, end its occupation of Namibia and enter into negotiations with the country's black majority.
No air date has been set for the fourth season of 'The Crown', however the third season will land on Netflix next month, November 17th.
