Fans of The Crown have plenty to look forward to when the show returns to Netflix for its final season on November 16, 2023. But perhaps the highlight of season six is the introduction of a young Kate Middleton, played by actress Meg Bellamy.

The British-born actress confirmed that she would be playing the Princess of Wales in a September 2022 Instagram post.

“Pinch me please..So excited to announce that I will be playing Kate Middleton in Series 6 of Netflix’s ‘The Crown,’” she wrote. “It is such an honour to be joining the most incredible cast and crew, and I will strive to do Kate justice.”

Since then, Meg has stepped out on red carpets and is quickly becoming an it-girl.

However, she does have some acting experience. The young actress studied drama in school and starred in productions such as Matilda. In 2021, she appeared in the short film The Prince of Savile Row.
