"The Crown" is bowing out.

After a Part 1 that chronicled the final days and the death of Princess Diana, Part 2 of Season 6 is expected to shift gears and enter a new millennium and focus more on happier times in British royal family including the Queen's Golden Jubilee, King Charles III and Camilla's wedding and the budding university romance between Prince William and Kate Middleton.

"Picking up a few months after the tragedy, Part 2 sees Prince William and Prince Harry growing up, with the former pursuing his studies at the University of St. Andrews," says Netflix about the upcoming Part 2. "As these first-look photos show, it’s time for some royal romance when William meets fellow student Kate Middleton during his time at uni."
