The final season of “The Crown” will return with several new cast members and some familiar faces.
Netflix’s British royal family drama series will culminate its sixth season in a two-part series finale, beginning with the first on November 16th, and with the second part arriving on December 14th.
“Harry Potter” franchise star Imelda Staunton will perform her encore as Queen Elizabeth II after starring as the monarch in season 5. Additionally, “The Affair” and “The Wire” star Dominic West returns as then-Prince Charles (who, in real life, was crowned King Charles III following the death of Queen Elizabeth last year), and “Phantom Thread” actress Lesley Manville is back as Princess Margaret.
Season 6 of “The Crown” covers Queen Elizabeth’s reign from the 1990s onwards, including the moment leading up to the tragic death of the late Princess Diana and the aftermath that followed.
Read on to meet the new and returning cast members of “The Crown” Season 6.

She has appeared in the BBC crime series “The Night Manager”, as well as two “Guardians of the Galaxy” films, “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” and Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet”, among others.

Fayed tragically lost his life in the 1997 car crash in Paris alongside Diana, a part of the story that season 6 will explore. Adballa has previously appeared in 2007’s “The Kite Runner,” Marvel’s “Moon Knight” TV series, “Assassin’s Creed” and “Mission: Impossible 5.”
Meg Bellamy as Kate Middleton
Meg Bellamy makes her on-screen debut as Prince William’s then-girlfriend Kate Middleton in season 6. The role marks the Berkshire native’s first professional performance. According to Hello, Bellamy was offered the role after she submitted an audition video in response to an open casting call for “The Crown” posted on social media.
She has an IMDb credit for appearing in a 2021 short titled “The Prince of Savile Row,” but previously worked as a performance artist at Legoland in Windsor, according to the Telegraph.

Luther Ford is an aspiring British filmmaker who will play an older version of Prince Harry after Fflyn Edwards appears as “what’s left” in earlier episodes of season 6. Ford, who will also make his on-screen debut after working behind the camera, told Hero magazine last month that he won the role of Prince Harry after “impulsively” participating in an open casting call.
