Prior to Kampa and McVey portraying Prince William, two other actors will be tackling younger versions of the duke. 

Timothee Sambor is playing a young William followed by Senan West, who is the real-life son of Dominic West, the actor playing Prince Charles in season 5 and 6 of the drama. 

Season 5 of The Crown is set to be released in November 2022. It is expected to cover the royals' time in the '90s. 

Tenet star Elizabeth Debicki is taking over the role of Princess Diana in season 5 from Emma Corrin. 

And since Debicki has been cast as Diana, who died in 1997, for seasons 5 and 6, the upcoming season is expected to not span a full decade, as the show has done in past seasons. 

Imelda Staunton will also take on the lead role of Queen Elizabeth II after Olivia Colman and Claire Foy each won Emmys and Golden Globes for the role.
