Netflix’s hit series, The Crown has finally found its Prince William and Kate Middleton for its forthcoming season. The show that follows Britain's royal family has left a mark in the industry for its expectationally accurate casting, who truly portray each character with the finest of details.
The Crown first aired in 2016 with Claire Foy playing the role of a young Queen Elizabeth when she first took over the throne. Foy was a part of the show for two seasons after which Olivia Colman took over the role to show the progression of the monarch’s life. Now, in season five, Imelda Staunton is all set to take over as Queen Elizabeth II. Some other notable actors who have previously been part of this iconic series are Matt Smith, Tobias Menzies, Helena Bonham Carter, Vanessa Kirby and, of course, Emma Corrin, who won everybody’s heart with her stunning portrayal of the people’s Princess, Diana Spencer.
While season five will focus on the 1990s, a turbulent period for the royals, season six will show the royal family’s life in early 2000, including the aftermath of Princess Diana’s death. The period drama has now found the perfect cast for a young and teenage Prince William and Kate Middleton. 19-year-old actor, Meg Bellamy is all set to make her career debut with The Crown, as Kate Middleton, when she was studying at St. Andrews University in Scotland, where she meets the prince for the first time. Along with Bellamy, 16-year-old Rufus Kampa and 21-year-old Ed McVey will also be making their television debut as Prince William at age 15 and in his early twenties respectively.
Season six of The Crown will be the final season of the award-winning show and will start filming later this year. While the network had earlier decided to end the show after season five, the makers felt that season six would be the perfect way to end the show. With an entirely new cast coming our way, it’s exciting to see what direction the show goes in, knowing that this season will be bringing in a lot more drama that the royals faced in their lives.
