Meet Prince William and Prince Harry.

Just weeks after the popular Netflix drama The Crown gave fans their first look at Elizabeth Debicki and Dominic West in character as Princess Diana and Prince Charles for the upcoming fifth and sixth season, the show has found its William and Harry.

The hit royal drama has roped in two relatively new child stars to portray the young princes; Timothee Sambor, 11, and Teddy Hawley, 7.

Sambor, who is set to play Charles and Diana's firstborn, and Hawley were photographed on set filming at the Surrey airfield.

The two youngsters were seen dressed in matching outfits at the sets; jeans, bomber jackets and white T-shirts.

Talking to The Sun about the casting, a source close to the production team said: "Netflix bosses wanted to make sure they had the right actors for the role given the young royals are so well known and were in the public eye so much at that age.

"They didn't rush it and found Teddy and Timothee who they hope will be warmly received."
