The Crown's latest incarnation of Prince Philip has been unveiled. 

Netflix on Tuesday released a first-look image of Tobias Menzies as the British royal, dressed in full regal splendor and sporting a few military awards. The Game of Thrones and Outlander grad replaces Matt Smith for seasons three and four of the Emmy-winning drama and will star alongside Olivia Colman (who replaced Claire Foy) as Queen Elizabeth II. 

Due to return to screens later this year, season three of The Crown will focus on the era of Prime Minister Harold Wilson in the 1960s and 1970s, with the fourth set to cover Margaret Thatcher and Princess Diana. Netflix content chief Ted Sarandos said the plan is for the series to run for six seasons and cover the Queen's entire life.
