The Crown’s Prince William and Kate stars film giggling university scenes in Scotland
The Crown is busy filming scenes from early on in Prince William and Kate Middleton’s relationship, when the couple met as university students.
The Prince and Princess of Wales first met during their time studying at St Andrews university in Scotland, where Kate is said to have first caught William’s eye after she walked the catwalk in a university charity fashion show.
Actors Ed McVey, 21, and Meg Bellamy, 19, will appear as the royal couple in the new series of the Netflix drama, which will show the pair’s early relationship as students.
Following filming of the pair first locking eyes during a morning jog, production continues in St Andrews as the cast and crew re-create the scenes of William and Kate’s blossoming romance.
Meg looked the spitting image of Kate as she filmed scenes for the drama, wearing a preppy green skirt and matching jacket under a blue overcoat, which she paired with brown knee-high boots.
She emulated Kate’s classic look with minimal make-up and wore her long brown hair loose, in a similar style to the Princess.
Ed cut a casual figure as he filmed in the role of Prince William, who studied geography during his time at St Andrews, looking laid-back in a pair of blue jeans, trainers, blue jumper and red raincoat.
The actor looked similar to the Prince, having the same short blonde hair and boyish features that he had during his early 20s.
The two actors were pictured giggling with each other as they took a short break from filming new scenes for the Netflix drama.
The pair were previously spotted filming a pivotal scene that captured them bumping into each other while out for a run in the Scottish countryside during their first year in university back in 2001.
William actor Ed was also seen acting in scenes alongside Dominic West, who plays William’s father, the now King Charles.
Kate and William graduated from St Andrews, which is Scotland’s oldest university, in 2005 and briefly split in 2007.
But William went on to propose in November 2010 and the couple married the following year.
They now have three children: Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, four.
In the series, Elizabeth Debicki will reprise her role as William’s mother Diana, with Imelda Staunton continuing as the Queen and Jonathan Pryce as the Duke of Edinburgh.
The last series of The Crown chronicled the divorce of Charles and Diana and was originally thought to be the show's last.
However, the show’s creator and writer Peter Morgan later said it would be extended to a sixth, with fans hoping the new series of the show will drop later this year.
