The Crown” Follows William and Kate’s Story from First Meeting to Marriage in St Andrews, Scotland

Filming of the sixth and final season of Netflix show The Crown is underway in St Andrews, Scotland, where Prince William and Kate Middleton first met.[0] The pair graduated in 2005 and briefly split in 2007, but William went on to propose in November 2010 and the couple married the following year.[1]

William’s journey at the University of St Andrews, where he encountered and eventually fell in love with Kate Middleton (now the Princess of Wales) in 2001, is featured in the new series of the show.[2] The Crown is set to explore the Prince and Princess’s romance, from their first meeting to their eventual marriage in Westminster Abbey.

The show stars Elizabeth Debicki and Dominic West as Diana, Princess of Wales and the then-Prince Charles, with Imelda Staunton continuing as Queen Elizabeth II and Jonathan Pryce as the late Duke of Edinburgh.[3] The fifth series of the drama ended with the end of Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s marriage.[4]

Actor Ed McVey, who plays Prince William during his university years on The Crown, has been seen jogging in St Andrews, alongside Meg Bellamy, who plays Kate, while extras hold Union flags and Saltires in front of the Fife town’s historic St Salvator’s Chapel.[5] The couple have also been spotted together with scores of extras holding Union Jacks and Scottish flags.[6]

The Crown will also feature the death of William’s mother, Princess Diana, from a Paris car crash in 1997.[7] The show has been capturing Ed McVey and Meg Bellamy during their time at university and recreating the time when William first caught Kate’s attention when she strode down the catwalk in a sheer dress for a charity fashion show.[5]

The sixth series of The Crown is expected to stream later in 2021 and will follow the late 1990s and early 2000s for the royal family.[8] Due to ongoing filming, multiple roads in the vicinity will be shut down for the upcoming days.[2]

    I hope people realize this show is a fiction. Most of the main events did happened at some point however everything else is total dramatized content. It's just another TV show.
