The show's third season hasn't even premiered yet, but fans are already delighted with hints of the fourth season's storyline. Behind-the-scenes photos surfaced of The Crown filming in a desert-like area, revealing a key plot point from the show's fourth season. Actors Josh O’Connor and Emma Corrin were clearly recreating Prince Charles and Princess Diana's 1983 royal tour of Australia.

Although they were actually shooting in Almería, Spain, the duo were sporting costumes designed to mimic the white dress and beige outfit that Charles and Diana were photographed in during their tour.

On that day in 1983, the royal couple was visiting Australia's Ayers Rock (now called Uluru). It was part of a month-and-a-half tour of the Commonwealth country—famously, the first time that Princess Diana, then 22 years old, had traveled overseas.

It was also the first tour Prince William, then just nine months old, was taken on. Diana had allegedly refused to leave him behind, even though it had been standard practice for royals to leave their children in others' care while embarking on such trips.

William's presence would establish a new normal, one that Prince William and Kate Middleton would later follow, bringing Prince George on their 2014 tour of New Zealand and Australia when he was less than a year old. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently followed suit, bringing months-old baby Archie on their royal tour of southern Africa.

Prince Charles and Princess Diana's 1983 trip certainly has plenty of material to mine for an episode of The Crown. Sadly, it'll be a while before the show's fourth season hits screens; in the meantime, fans will have to be satisfied with The Crown's third season, scheduled to debut on Netflix next month.
