Kampa and McVey have done stage work in Britain, while “The Crown” will serve as Bellamy’s professional debut as an actor.

“For all three actors, ‘The Crown’ will mark their professional screen debut,” Netflix said in a statement. “Rufus and Meg were both discovered from self-submitted audition tapes following a casting call on social media."

In April, following the casting call, fans came up with a wide net of choices for who they'd like to see play the Duchess of Cambridge, with Allison Williams, Lily Collins and Daisy Edgar-Jones among the names suggested.

The fifth season of “The Crown” will premiere in November, with an all-new cast featuring Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II, Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip, Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret, Dominic West as Prince Charles, Elizabeth Debicki as Princess Diana, and Olivia Williams as Camilla Parker Bowles.
