This is a pretty emotional season after the monarch passed away earlier this year, the makers will bring back, Claire Foy and Olivia Colman, who played the previous iterations of the Queen in some capacity, and fans are pretty excited to see how things unfold while the main iteration is played by Imelda Staunton. On top of that, she’ll be joined by Viola Prettejohn, who plays a very young Elizabeth during World War II. The actor has credits like The Nerves, Counterpart and more under her belt but perhaps she is best known for The Witcher where she played fake Ciri. She’ll be next seen in Never Let Me Go and Generation Z.
Leslie Manville returns to play the late Princess Margaret again after playing the character in Season 5. However, like Elizabeth, a much younger version of the princess will be played by Beau Gadsdon, who has played her in flashbacks since the first season. Gadsdon is well known for playing Jyn Erso in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, her other credits include The Girl in the Spider’s Web, Treason, Salt, Genius and more. She’ll be next seen in Here and the miniseries A Gentleman in Moscow.

Fans have been waiting for The Crown to unveil its Prince William. The current heir to the throne will be played by two actors: Rufus Kampa will play the Prince of Wales, at around the age of 15, and it will be taken over by Ed McVey, who will play a slightly older version of the prince. In his acting debut, Kampa is already seen in different images from the series sharing space with his on-screen parents Elizabeth Debicki and Dominic West, as Princess Diana and now King Charles, respectively. The same goes for McVey, who plays slightly older Prince Willam in his debut role.

Playing young Kate Middleton, alongside McVey’s William is Meg Bellamy. The previously released images by Netflix saw them in their college era taking a stroll hand in hand and they look like the spitting image of the Royals from their earlier time.
Joining the league of young royals are Fflyn Edwards and Luther Ford playing a young version of Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry. A younger Harry will be played by Edwards, whom we saw in the previously released images while Ford will play an older Harry. Fans would be familiar with Edwards from his previous roles like Elliot in 1899, Marcus in North Star and a young Kaz in Shadow and Bones. As for Ford, the young actor-editor has credits like While the Going is Good, Woods as an editor, and Dream Between as an actor.
