Fans will see Imelda Staunton, 67, as Queen Elizabeth II walking through a Union Jack filled street as revellers run around her as if she is not there.
Grim faced, Her Majesty then looks on gloomily as a portrait style sign at The Queen’s Head pub is taken down and replaced with one of King Charles and renamed The King’s Head.
Footage of the emotional moments has appeared online after students at London School of Economics secretly filmed the Harry Potter actress recording at the boozer from their university building in Central London.
Last year Series five found itself at the centre of controversy after scenes showed Prince Charles, played by Dominic West, plotting with the then Prime Minister John Major, played by Jonny Lee Miller, to force his mother to abdicate.
The scenes, which sparked fury and caused the former Prime Minister to speak out, depicted the Princes of Wales branding The Firm and Her Majesty outdated and out of touch.
Charles argued he should ascend the throne in order to revitalise and protect the Monarchy.
Sir John Major slammed the scenes as “malicious fiction” insisting he was not approached to fact-check any material.
The Crown began in 2016 – documenting the record breaking reign of Queen Elizabeth II against rapid social change of the United Kingdom and bitter family disputes.
Initially it was only set to run for five series, however, after becoming one of the most successful shows in the word, creator Peter Morgan announced an extra series.
He previously said: “As we started to discuss the storylines for Season 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons.
“To be clear, Season six will not bring us any closer to the present-day — it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.”
Last month during a controversial appearance on US TV, Prince Harry admitted he watches the show.
The Duke of Sussex told The Late Show With Stephen Colbert he “fact checks” the show.
