In the last season of The Crown lto twenty-one year old Bellamy she is a young Kate between the years 2001 and 2005, at the time of the University of St. Andrews and the early stages of her relationship with William (who will have the face of Ed McVey), a period in which the couple was not yet in the eye of the storm.

I really love haute couture: I like both masculine looks and glamorous clothes».
