Netflix has released the full trailer for season 3 of "The Crown", and it's clear that everything isn't exactly going swimmingly for Olivia Colman's Queen Elizabeth II.

Netflix's Queen Elizabeth II drama The Crown (finally) returns for Season 3 on Sunday, Nov. 17 - with Oscar victor Olivia Colman taking over the lead role from Claire Foy - and in the new trailer above, Elizabeth looks even stuffier and more old-fashioned than usual as the United Kingdom enters the swinging "60s, with long-haired protestors clamoring for change in the streets".

"On days like today ask yourself, in the time I've been on the throne, what have I actually achieved", asks Colman's Queen on the occasion of her Silver Jubilee, commemorating 25 years on the throne.

Replacing Claire Foy as QEII is Oscar victor Olivia Colman, while Prince Phillip (played by Matt Smith in the first two seasons) is portrayed by Tobias Menzies ("Outlander") and Princess Margaret is played by Helena Bonham Carter, replacing Vanessa Kirby.

The third season of the hit period drama jumps to the 1960s, continuing to dramatize the royal highs and lows of the English monarchy as they tackle new historic moments, from Cold War paranoia to the space race.

"This country was still great when I came to the throne, all that's happened on my watch is the place has fallen apart", she adds.

Ben Daniels (The Exorcist) plays Antony Armstrong-Jones, Parker Bowles is played by Call the Midwife's Emerald Fennell and Prince Charles by Josh O'Connor. "It is a duty".

"We're ready for you, your majesty..." opens the first trailer for season three of The Crown.
