The showrunner and bosses at The Crown are reportedly looking for a young “stunning” actress who can fit into the role of a teenage Kate Middleton for the sixth season.
Recently, the show issued a casting call to hunt for “exceptional young actors” aged 16 to 21 to play Prince Harry and Prince William on the show. They must have some resemblance to the royals and are not required to have previous acting experience.
The sixth season will focus on William and Kate’s young love as students of the University of St Andrews. According to a source, including the narrative of “the Duchess of Cambridge is an easy win for The Crown as it will get more people watching.”
However, Kate will not be the main focus of the storyline but be present as “a bonus”. William and Harry’s roles, however, are quite “significant” for the sixth and final season as it will chronicle how the late nineties and early 2000s affected the Princes’ lives as they loved through turbulent times and dealt with the personal tragedy of their mother’s untimely demise.
In the fifth season, Dominic West’s son, Senan, who is 14, is currently reprising the role of William. Dominic stars as Prince Charles.
The sixth season will most likely focus on the trajectory of the princes’ lives, Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles’ wedding, the aftermath of Princess Diana’s death and probably include some of Harry’s darkest trysts with cannabis, alcohol and rehab, besides the Queen’s golden jubilee celebration, the infamous 9/11 terrorist attacks and more.
Created by Peter Morgan, the Emmy-winning show has garnered a massive fan following as it chronicles the social and political landscape during Queen Elizabeth II’s regime over six seasons.
The fifth and penultimate season stars Imelda Staunton, Elizabeth Debicki, Dominic West etc. It will air on Netflix sometime in November 2022.
