Olivia Colman makes her Queen Elizabeth debut in the newest teaser for season three of The Crown.

The long-awaited season sees the royal family struggling to “meet the challenges of a rapidly changing Britain,” after a sizable time jump to the ‘60s and ‘70s, Netflix says. Colman takes over for Claire Foy—whose pictures appear in the spot—as the queen lamentably ages to her mid-40s.

“A great many changes. Nothing one can do about it, one just has to get on with it,” she declares.

Other new cast additions include Tobias Menzies, who replaces Matt Smith as Prince Philip, and Helena Bonham Carter, who is taking over Princess Margaret from Vanessa Kirby. They join Josh O’Connor as Prince Charles, Erin Doherty as Princess Anne, Marion Bailey as the Queen Mother and Jason Watkins as Prime Minister Harold Wilson.

Season three of The Crown hits Netflix on Nov. 17.
