Netflix released the first look images from the sixth and final season of The Crown which debuts Ed McVey as Prince William and Meg Bellamy as Kate Middleton.
Inspired by real events, The Crown is a fictional dramatization of the story of Queen Elizabeth II and the political and personal events that shaped her reign.
As The Crown enters a new decade, Prince William starts at University in St Andrew’s, determined to lead as normal a life as possible while he still can. Also beginning life as a University student, is Kate Middleton from Berkshire. As the pair meet for the first time on campus, a new romance and a new future for The Crown begins.
Ed McVey (23) takes on the role of Prince William in the later episodes of this sixth season. This will be Ed’s professional screen debut having appeared on stage at The Old Vic and at Hammersmith Riverside Studios following his graduation from the Drama Centre London in 2021.
Newcomer Meg Bellamy (19) was cast as Kate Middleton after submitting an audition tape following a casting call on social media.
Ed and Meg filmed scenes for the upcoming series in St Andrews, Scotland earlier this year — enjoying some of the real life locations that their characters frequented twenty years ago, including the famous Northpoint Cafe where Kate and Prince William met (see bonus behind-the-scenes photo below).
The Crown will be on Netflix later this year.
