Prince Charles star Josh O’Connor, 30, made his debut as a young incarnation of the heir to the throne in the previous instalment of The Crown. This documented the Prince of Wales’ friendship with Camilla Parker Bowles (played by Emerald Fennell) before he eventually marries Princess Diana (Emma Corrin) in the upcoming season four, which will begin streaming on Netflix next month. The next 10 episodes will follow the royals through the time period of 1977 to around 1990, which incorporates the married couple’s 1983 Australian Tour.

To capture the atmosphere of the crowds waiting to get a glimpse of the young royal couple, producers drafted in extras to bulk up the scene.
