The return of The Crown on Netflix is a cause for celebration for TV and fashion lovers alike. With a storyline centered around the British royal family, the series comes with an equally lavish wardrobe to match, showcasing detailed recreations of iconic looks that are just as fascinating as the plot. Most notably, the new season brings the highly anticipated introduction of Emma Corrin as Princess Diana and Gillian Anderson as Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, both with their own set of signature fashion pieces interpreted by costume designer Amy Roberts.

Along with floral prints, the Princess of Wales often wore polka dots. One of her notable youthful looks recreated on the show is a red polka-dot dress she wore to a James Bond movie premiere. While the princess didn't actually wear a diamond tiara to the event, we appreciate the sparkling finishing touch.

Like her sister, Queen Elizabeth II's wardrobe also gets increasingly mature. Instead of the pretty pinks and purples she wore in the third season, she now opts for more muted shades like this pastel lace dress.
