There's so much in the latest season of The Crown to be obsessing over – the drama, the locations and, of course, the costumes.

Princess Diana, naturally, has some of the most striking looks in the show, but there's something each of the main characters have in common: the classic Barbour jacket.

In fact, during the first two episodes of the Netflix-favorite show at least a dozen Barbours of varying styles alone.

As Princess Diana, as played by Emma Corrin, experiences the 'Balmoral Test', she gamely gets into character by slipping on a trusty, oversized Barbour alongside her father-in-law Prince Philip.

Josh O'Connor's Prince Charles, too, a well-known lover of time in the countryside, also dresses up in the only thing he would deem acceptable - the classic Barbour.

And, of course, it would be remiss not to mention the infamous moment when Gillian Anderson's Margaret Thatcher appears in Balmoral dressed for London rather than the lochs.

The Queen, as played by Olivia Colman, for once even seems to struggle to contain her feelings at one not wearing the trusty Barbour jacket.
