The announcement was made with a simple poster of the edge of a gilded frame, with a hairline crack splintering through the wall - presumably hinting at the cracks within the royal family over the period told in season five. 

Season five is set to examine the events of the 1990s, which may include Princess Anne’s divorce, Prince Charles and Diana’s acrimonious separation, as well as the fire as Windsor Castle which led the Queen to refer to her year as her "annus horribilis".
