New actors portraying Prince Charles and Princess Diana will make their debut on "The Crown" next season — and we've got an early peek!
Dominic West and Elizabeth Debicki have joined season five of the hit Netflix series, and the pair are the spitting images of the Prince and Princess of Wales in a photo snapped in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, on Tuesday.
Debicki, 31, and West, 51, appear to be re-creating the former royal couple's 1991 trip to Italy with their sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. The young princes are portrayed in season five by child actors Timothee Sambor and Teddy Hawley.
Though the "Crown" stars appear to be all smiles in the pic, they're playing the royal couple just months before they announced they would separate in December 1992.
The pair first met in 1977, when Diana was 16 and Charles was 29. They got engaged in February of 1981, and married five months later, on July 29, in a wedding televised around the world. They welcomed their first son, William, in 1982 and then their second son, Harry, in 1984 before divorcing in 1996.
Actors Debicki and West appear in the newly released photo wearing clothes similar to those worn by Diana and Charles at the Expo '92 in Seville, Spain. Debicki is practically the late Diana's twin with her chic short haircut and eye-catching blue print dress, while West looks dapper in a brown-gray suit.
Debicki takes over the role of "the people's princess" from Emma Corrin, who won a Golden Globe for her performance, while West takes over the role of Charles from Josh O'Connor, who won an Emmy for his portrayal.
Season five of "The Crown" is scheduled to premiere on Netflix in November 2022.
