The production for Crown Season 6 will begin this August, as confirmed by Netflix. Kate Bone took it to her official Twitter account to announce that the team was looking for two faces to portray the brothers. And Netflix is not looking for professional actors! Instead, even the young talents can try their luck. Kate Bone also posted pictures of young Harry and William for reference. The minimum requirement is that the ones auditioning must have a strong resemblance to the royal brothers and should be young!

The team is looking for an actor aged between 16-21 for Prince William and for Harry the age range is 16-20. There is plenty of time for the creators to hunt for the right talent. The ones auditioning are requested to submit their past work in the field (it will work even if they were indulged in something small) and to submit a video to the team. The decision regarding who will star in the upcoming 6th season as William and Harry will be made in the following two months.
The 5th season is scheduled to premiere on Netflix in November of 2022. The upcoming season is expected to cover the visible crack in Diana and Charles’s relationship which will lead to their divorce. It might even go as far as covering the death of Diana. Dominic West has been confirmed to play Prince Charles while Diana will be portrayed by Elizabeth Debicki and Senan West will play young Prince William.

What will Season 6 entail?
Well the 6th season will go more in detail about the royal family and the early 2000s. In this timeline the roles of Prince William and Harry will become more prominent. It will be interesting to find out who the creators will finalize to depict the royal brothers. And considering that these can be completely new faces is what’s making us even more eager!
The storyline for the 6th season is not known yet. However, we can always predict it. In the early 2000s, the young Prince William got into the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. It was during this time that he met his future wife, Kate. while one brother was thriving the other one was falling into the darkness of life. Harry was caught drinking and indulged in some other illegal activities. To scare him Charles took him to a heroin addict center as well. Most likely this storyline will get featured in the upcoming season.
Prince Charles at that time was trying to deal with the allegations of him being with Camilla Parker. Whom he eventually married in the year 2005. Queen Elizabeth intervened in a case to stop Diana’s butler from getting convicted for stealing her prized possessions following her death. Because if the trial would have taken place, the revelation of truth in the witness box about the actual situation of the royal family would have been an embarrassing experience.
Prince Andrew also got into hot water when someone came up with trafficking allegations against him. It was truly a dark era for the Royal Family. We are still waiting for major updates about Crown Season 6 so stay tuned!
