Netflix fans need not wait any longer as Prince William and Kate Middleton are about to land on season six of The Crown.

The hotly anticipated drama has had fans eagerly awaiting their arrival – with much speculation over who will play the royal married couple.

It has now been confirmed that The Queen's grandson will have two actors starring as him in the British hit, with William appearing in the series from age 15 to his early adult years.

Actor Rufus Kampa will take to screens as his younger self while Ed McVey will go on to fall head-over-heels for the soon-to-be duchess.

Meg Bellamy has been cast for the role of Kate – with all three landing their first ever TV roles.

With season five set to launch this November, series six appears to be a long way off yet for addicted viewers who already can't wait to know the inside intel.

For the up and coming season five, William is played by Timothee Sambor and Senan West and it is anticipated that the series will cover much of the royal antics in the 90s.

With Princess Diana dying in the fatal and tragic car crash in Paris in August 1997, the programme promises much more intrigue than ever before.

Australian-born star Elizabeth Debicki will be taking over the role of the Princess of Wales from actress Emma Corrin – with directors Stephen Daldry, Philip Martin, Julian Jarrold and Benjamin Caron taking us all on a journey into a new and heartbreaking decade.

Speaking about her new role in a statement, the actress previously said: "Princess Diana’s spirit, her words and her actions live in the hearts of so many."

She added: "It is my true privilege and honour to be joining this masterful series, which has had me absolutely hooked from episode one."

Series five has already caused some friction, with Diana's long-term friend Jemima Khan cutting her ties with Netflix after she was hired as a series consultant for the production.

It was reported that Jemima established that the princess' story would "not necessarily be told as respectfully or compassionately as [she] had hoped".
