Plans for season six of Netflix show The Crown are well underway and you could be a part of it.
So far, the royal drama – based on real events – has charted palace events from the Queen’s coronation right through to Margaret Thatcher’s time at Number 10 Downing Street.
Season five is set to hit our screens this winter, covering the tragic death of Princess Diana.
But there’s more to come – Netflix is reportedly looking for a college-aged actress to play teenage Kate Middleton.
Judging from the show’s timeline, season six is likely to cover the millennium during Kate and Prince William’s college years. But the role will be pretty small.
A source told The Sun: “Having the Duchess of Cambridge is an easy win for The Crown , as it’ll get more people watching. But they’ll only cast her if they can find the right candidate.”
Have you got what it takes to play the teen beauty?
Last month, the show sent out a casting call on Twitter for the roles of William and Harry, citing “no previous professional acting experience is required.”

The real Duchess of Cambridge has not yet shared an opinion on her potential portrayal in the hit series, but expert Grant Harrold told OK! that our future Queen has nothing to worry about.
Prince Charles’ former butler, Grant, explained: “There is nothing not perfect about her.
"At the end of the day, it’s PR. Some bits [of The Crown ] are historical and some bits are drama – the palace has always been keen to remind people it is drama.”
