Although the fifth season of ‘The Crown’ has not yet been released, the sixth and final season is beginning to take shape. As Deadline reports, The Netflix series has already found the actors who will play Prince Williams and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. After an exhaustive casting process, the young Rufus Kampa has been selected to play the role of the prince at the age of 15, while Ed McVey will play him in his late teens and early adulthood. In the case of Middleton, she will only have one face: that of Meg Bellamy. All 3 are television newbies, although they have experience in the theater.
Kampa, 16, will appear in the episodes where the British royal family deals with the death of Lady Di, the Princess of Wales, in August 1997. Diana will be played in the fifth and sixth seasons by Elizabeth Debicki, taking over from Emma Corrin. The actor has been starring in the play ‘The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole’ on the West End stage for three years, although he has several more productions on his resume.
After a time jump, McVey (21 years old) will assume the role of William of Cambridge and we will see how he met Kate Middleton and the beginning of their relationship, when the two were studying Art History at the University of St Andrews in Fife, Scotland, in 2001. McVey is now working on the play ‘Camp Siegfried’ at London’s Old Vic, while 16-year-old Bellamy, who plays the Duchess of Cambridge, is practically a novice in all aspects of acting. Filming for the sixth season will begin at the end of this year.
The fifth season of ‘The Crown’ will premiere in November on the streaming platform and will present us with a completely new cast with Imelda Staunton at the helm giving life to Queen Elizabeth. Jonathan Pryce is the new Philip of Edinburgh, we will see Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret, Dominic West as Prince Charles, Debicki as Diana, Olivia Williams as Camilla Parker Bowles and Jonny Lee Miller as Prime Minister John Major. Also, towards the end of the season, West’s son, Senan West, will play a young Prince Williams, about 11 years old, and Teddy Hawley and Will Powell will play Prince Harry as a child.
Although it has not been confirmed which years this season will cover, it is believed that Lady Di’s car accident will not come until the sixth and the next one is expected to cover the early 1990s. Of course, Dodi Al-Fayed, Diana’s boyfriend who died with her in the accident, and his father, Mohamed Al-Fayed, will appear. The first is performed by Khalid Abdalla (‘Kites in the sky’) and the second by Salim Daw (‘Oslo’).
