First Pics Of Baby Prince William In 'The Crown' Are Here

First Pics Of Baby Prince William In 'The Crown' Are Here

The first snaps of The Crown season 4 have started to trickle in, and we've finally been given a first glimpse at a baby Prince William.

ICYMI, here's where things left off at the end of season 3:

The historical drama has been enthralling viewers for three seasons now, chronicling the Queen's life through to lens of real-life royal scandals beginning with her wedding in 1947.

We've been ploughing through season three, which dropped on Netflix last month with a new Queen (Olivia Coleman replacing Claire Foy), but it's season four that will strike a chord with most viewers.

Edging ever closer to the present day, the upcoming season - which is currently in filming stages - will explore the Lady Diana Spencer years, including her marriage to Charles and the birth of Prince William and Harry. And exciting new set photos have just dropped.

Photos show Emma Corrin as Lady Diana filming a scene in which the young princess is boarding a plane for her and Charles' royal tour of Australia and New Zealand in March 1983. Behind her, a nanny can be seen carrying a baby Prince William, born in 1982.

In another shot, Diana can be seen disembarking the plane in Australian, met by a fanfare of media.

The six-week trip was the then-22-year-old Princess Diana's first royal tour. It was also Prince William's first, after his mother reportedly refused to leave him behind.

Her move set a new royal precedent for young royals to accompany their parents on royal tours, and it is now the norm with Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle regularly taking their little ones with them.

Emma Corrin (Pennyworth, Cesare) was announced to be joining the cast as the iconic Diana back in April.

She said: "I have been glued to the show and to think I'm now joining this incredibly talented acting family is surreal.

"Princess Diana was an icon and her effect on the world remains profound and inspiring. To explore her through Peter Morgan's writing is the most exceptional opportunity, and I will strive to do her justice."

The Crown season three ends in 1977, and the next instalment will delve into the dramas of the Eighties. Camilla Parker Bowles is still included in the cast list, played by Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve, Call The Midwife), so we imagine the show will delve into their affair.

But in the era we saw a whole lot of other goings on.

Shots (fortunately blank) were fired at Queen at the 1981 Trooping the Colour ceremony that left her unharmed, but will no doubt be referenced. But the Eighties also saw the Falklands War, Princess Anne marry Mark Phillips and Margaret Thatcher - who will be played by Gillian Anderson (The Fall, The X Files) - come to power.

A lot of previous seasons have taken a look at the Prime Ministers and their respective relationships with the Queen, so we expect to see more on that again.
