A new trailer for The Crown has arrived, giving an even deeper look at what's in store for Season 2. The official clip, which arrives three months after the teaser, starts off with a preview of growing tensions between Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy) and Prince Philip (Matt Smith).

"This restlessness of yours, it has to be a thing of the past," the young queen tells her husband in the beginning of the clip. "The monarchy's too fragile; you keep telling me yourself. One more scandal, one more national embarrassment and it would all be over."

The show's sophomore season follows the royal couple—and those closest to them—from the years 1956-1964, according to Entertainment Weekly. The events will include their travels to Tonga, Papua New Guinea, Antarctica, and more, and the birth of their sons, Princes Edward and Andrew.

"The world's changing faster than anyone can catch up with," Foy told EW of her character this season. "There is no letup. She just keeps having to go from one crisis to another to another, and at some point, it's about five crises at the same time and you have no idea how she manages to get up in the morning."

The preview also sheds light on another royal pair, Princess Margaret (Vanessa Kirby) and her husband, Lord Snowdon (Matthew Goode). Plus, frictions with Edward VIII the Duke of Windsor and the crown continue.
