The first footage from the filming of the sixth season of "The Crown," where Kate Middleton and Prince William will meet, has surfaced
Filming has begun on the sixth season of the series "The Crown" from Netflix, which tells about the life, scandals and personal dramas of the British royal family. The new episodes, scheduled for release in 2023, will show, in particular, the acquaintance and the beginning of the relationship between Kate Middleton and Prince William.
As you know, the future Prince and Princess of Wales met while studying at St. Andrews University (Scotland) in 2001. That's where the filming is taking place now, Deadline writes.
Kate Middleton will be played by 19-year-old actress Meg Bellamy. For her it is the first role in a movie. Before that, the girl has only played on the theatrical stage. Not so long ago, she graduated from the St. Crispin School of Theater. However, fans of the series and the royal family have already managed to appreciate the similarity of the actress with her character.
For the performer of the role of Prince William, the main heir to the British throne, Ed McVeigh shooting the series was also the first experience of working in the cinema. Prior to that, he played in the famous Old Vic theater in London.
In 2001 Kate was working part-time as a waitress. This graph from her biography is also mentioned in the series.
According to sources, the actors, who played the royal couple at their young age, are doing an excellent job, so viewers will be pleasantly surprised by their acting and verisimilitude.
It should be noted that the sixth season will also show the tragic events of 1997, namely the death of Princess Diana in a car accident. The creators of the series understand that what they see on the screen can be very painful for the royal family and all viewers. The moment of the accident, according to the director, will not be shown. However, casual witnesses in Barcelona, where the episode was filmed about the accident, saw after the shooting a broken black Mercedes.
We should add that the sixth season of "The Crown" will be the final, and also the only one, which was filmed after the death of Queen Elizabeth II. At the time of her death and funeral, filming was suspended. Now the exact release date of the new series is unknown. It is expected that it will be the fall of 2023.
Elizabeth II in the sixth season, as in the previous one, will be played by Imelda Staunton, also known for her role as the antagonist Dolores Umbridge in the iconic Harry Potter films.
As OBOZREVATEL wrote, Middleton previously delighted fans with a baby photo of herself posing with her father Michael, gently touching his smiling face with her tiny hand. Fans immediately began making collages comparing little Kate and the youngest child of the Prince and Princess of Wales, Louis.
