Netflix has revealed a first look at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s love story in the final series of The Crown.
As the first half of the final series of the royal drama landed on the streaming service this morning, stills from the second half of the instalment were released which show the Prince and Princess of Wales in their student days as they are about to share a first kiss.
The young lovebirds, played by Meg Bellamy and Ed McVey, gaze into each other’s eyes and lean in for a smooch in the images shared by the streaming service.
The second half of series six of The Crown will be released on Netflix next month, and are set several years after the conclusion of the first half, which focuses on the last days of Princess Diana’s life.
As the first four episodes of series six are released, they may cause fresh anguish for the royal family as they depict Princess Diana’s final days – including the moment her car entered the Pont de l’Alma tunnel where it crashed and killed her in August 1997.

While the first half of the sixth series of The Crown depicts a tragic and solemn time for the Royal Family, the second instalment is set to play out some happier times – including William and Kate falling in love at St Andrew’s University and Charles and Camilla’s wedding day.
It will also show Prince William, a future King, coming of age in the public eye as fans around the world go wild for the handsome young royal.
William and Kate met at university in Edinburgh as students in 2001 and were good friends before starting a romantic relationship.

Kate previously revealed it took some time for the two to get to know each other.
‘I think you said I actually went bright red when I met you and sort of scuttled off,’ she recounted to Prince William during their 2010 engagement interview. ‘[I was] feeling very shy about meeting you.’
But as the pair spent more and more time together, they found that they had much in common and enjoyed each other’s company.
Then the following year, Kate caught William’s eye in a different way when the princess, then 20 years old, confidently strutted in front of her peers wearing a revealing sheer dress with a black bra and underwear for a fashion show titled ‘The Art of Seduction’. (It had actually been a see-through skirt or minidress worn as a top).
Prince William, who paid £200 for a table close to the catwalk, is said to have been open-mouthed.
As the Crown series 6 is set to play out the royal couple’s love story in their student days, it will show William coming of age as a future king, after previously depicting his younger years.
The first instalment of the series shows the Prince’s last days spent with his mother, Princess Diana, before her tragic death in a car accident in Paris.
William and Harry share an emotional final phone call with their mother, who has called them from the Ritz Hotel in the French capital while they are staying in Balmoral with their father and grandparents.

After a long day in Paris, a frustrated Diana finally gets to speak to Prince William and Prince Harry, who are holidaying with their father in Balmoral.
During the phone call, William asks his mother if she’s going to marry Dodi Fayed, to which Diana says she is not.
He then explains all the newspapers in the UK are reporting that the pair are engaged.
Diana replies: ‘I am emphatically not going to marry Dodi. To be honest, I cant wait to come home.’
William then asks his mother if she is ok. She nods and says: ‘I’m ok. Its just a bit mad here. I don’t really understand how I ended up here. Mummy just needs to make some changes to her life, that’s all. But that’s not your problem – that’s mine.’
In a tender moment, she tells her sons she loves them and they reply to say they love her too. She promises to return home the following evening to see them.

However it appears this is one of the aspects of the depiction of events that has been dramatised, as it does not ring true with William and Harry’s accounts of their final phone call with Diana.
Prince William and Prince Harry have only ever addressed their final phone call with their mother once.
Speaking in 2017, 20 years after Diana’s death, they discussed their last discussion with Diana while she was in Paris and they were in Balmoral with their cousins.
Recalling the chat, they expressed their regret that they were desperate to go back outside and play.
Speaking in the documentary Diana: Our Mother, Harry said: ‘I can’t really, necessarily, remember what I said. But all I do remember is probably, you know, regretting for the rest of my life how short the phone call was.
‘And if I’d known that was the last time I was going to speak to my mother – the things I would have said to her.’
The fact that Harry, who was 12 at the time of his mother’s death, cannot remember the details of his final conversation with Diana suggests it was not a chat where deep feelings were expressed – rather, an ordinary chat because neither Diana nor the princes knew it would be their final conversation.
