Dominic West is set to play the role of Prince Charles in the final two seasons of The Crown. The actor will portray Prince Charles in the last seasons which focuses on the Prince’s affair with Camilla Parker Bowles.
The casting comes days after the actor was seen kissing Lily James during a trip to Rome. An insider of the show told The Sun, “Show bosses looked at several stars for the sought-after role, but he was by far their preferred actor.” The insider reveals that both parties are trying to make a deal.
The irony of the casting of Dominic in the role of Prince Charles, while he is cheating, will not be lost on anyone, according to the insider. Lily had recently broken up from Matt Smith, who played the younger version of the Duke of Edinburgh in the early seasons.
The couple had made their efforts to rekindle their romance during the lockdown. However, they decided to go their separate ways after five years of dating.
There were reports of Lily and Dominic being all over each other at the airport. The actor had staged a reunion scene with his wife, Catherine FitzGerald. They also hinted that they are very much together as his wife held up a paper that read, “Our marriage is strong and we’re very much still together. Thank you.”
The married couple hugged and kissed each other in front of all the cameras showing that they are still together. However, Dominic had hidden his left hand inside his coat, speculating if he was wearing a wedding ring.
An eyewitness claimed that they witnessed Dominic being rather cozy with Lily in front of other passengers. The pictures came out days later after they were seen kissing at a restaurant.
The Crown Releases Season 4 Trailer
The Crown Season 4 trailer has been released as Princess Diana and Prince Charles take center stage in the new season.
The highly anticipated season of Netflix’s The Crown has released. It focuses on the life of Princess Diana, played by Emma Corrin, and Prince Charles, played by Josh O’Connor. It also features the first look at Gillian Anderson playing the role of Margaret Thatcher.
The trailer’s narration draws attention as it says, “Here is the stuff of which fairy tales are made — a prince and princess on their wedding day. But fairy tales usually end at this point, with the simple phrase, ‘They lived happily ever after.”
The narration continues, “As husband and wife live out their vows, loving and cherishing one another — sharing life’s splendors and miseries, achievements and setbacks — they will be transformed in the process. Our faith sees the wedding day not as the place of arrival, but the place where the adventure really begins.”
The new season will be released on November 15 on Netflix and will be the continuation of season 3. The previous season ended with Queen Elizabeth’s 25th year as the United Kingdom’s sovereign leader.
The main focus for the new season will be on how the Queen and her family are trying to secure the perfect bride for Prince Charles to continue their line of succession. The season will be about the Prince falling for Lady Diana Spencer. The trailer also gives a peek at their relationship that depicts a fairytale to unite the British people but it is actually not.
