The Crown series five will finally hit Netflix on Wednesday to the delight of fans.

And the stars of the show were out in force for the premiere in London on Tuesday night, including Prince William and Harry child actors Timothee Sambor, 12, and Teddy Hawley, 7.

The pair looked smart in suits as they arrived in style to the red carpet at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane where they proudly posed with Diana star Elizabeth Debicki.

Teddy looked sweet in a velvet red suit which he teamed with black trousers, shiny shows and bow tie. 

Meanwhile Timothee wore a black suit and tie as he posed with Elizabeth and looked in great spirits at the exciting event.

The two unknowns will appear in the Netflix drama as younger depictions of Princess Diana’s sons, in the midst of the royal’s turbulent divorce from her husband Prince Charles, who is being played by Dominic West.

Last month it was revealed Timothee and Teddy were taking on the role of the young princes after they were seen filming in Surrey.

According to The Sun, a source 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. They’re about to become household names in their own right.’

With season five of The Crown described as ‘trolling on a Hollywood scale’ there has been an avalanche of backlash surrounding the Netflix show and the ‘insensitive’ portrayal of the Royal Family during the Nineties.

The Crown, created and written by Peter Morgan, has been a hit for Netflix since it was first released in 2016 with the main characters being regularly recast to follow the age of the royals in their respective timelines.

Fan appetite for the show has been stronger than ever, with viewers counting down the days for the series launch, even though it has been criticised for sensationalising events and including fictionalised scenes.

With the previous two seasons of The Crown covering the three decades before the Nineties the entire team has now been recast for this series’ 13-year time frame of 1990 to 2003.

Focusing heavily on the fallout between Princess Diana, played by Elizabeth, and King Charles (then Prince of Wales) as portrayed by Dominic, the new series will showcase a number of low points for the royals.

Season five of The Crown will be released on Netflix at 8am GMT on Wednesday November 9.
