UK reports are tipping Josh O’Connor (The Durrells, Peaky Blinders) will portray Prince Charles in the next season of The Crown.
The role is set to depict the young prince from his teens to early 20s. The third series covers the years 1964-1970, when Charles was between the ages of 16 and 22, so O’Connor, who is 28 later this month, will need to appear remarkably youthful.
Already confirmed are Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Tobias Menzies as Prince Philip and Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II.
Season 3 returns in 2019.
