Meg Bellamy has been cast as Kate Middleton for the sixth and final season of Netflix's The Crown.
Earlier this year, a casting call went out looking for the perfect actors to cast as the young royals, and now the final decisions have been made.
Meg Bellamy, 19, will play Kate Middleton while Prince William will be played by Ed McVey, 21, and Rufus Kampa, 16.
Kate Middleton's role in The Crown will be taken by 19-year-old Meg Bellamy.
Meg was cast as the Duchess of Cambridge after she submitted self-taped auditions in to the Netflix team after seeing a casting call advertised on social media.
According to Deadline, Meg has only taken part in amateur dramatics and film-making, making this her professional screen debut.
There are two actors who will portray Prince William in The Crown, Rufus Kampa, who will play a 15-year-old William, and Ed McVey, who will play William as a young adult.
While Kampa will be involved in episodes based around the time of Princess Diana's tragic death, McVey will play the role of William at University, where he first meets his future wife Kate Middleton.
While a casting call was also put out for Prince Harry, Netflix's The Crown have not confirmed who has been cast in that specific role.
