Dominic West and Elizabeth Debicki have been unveiled as the Prince of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales, in a first look at the fifth series of The Crown.

Netflix’s lavish period drama will see The Wire star West, 51, take over the role of Charles from Josh O’Connor while The Night Manager actress Debicki, 30, will replace Emma Corrin in upcoming episodes.

Due to be shown in 2022, it will pick up on its depiction of the troubled royal couple at the height of their global fame and divorce in the Nineties.

Imelda Staunton will take over the role of the Queen from Olivia Colman while Jonathan Pryce will replace Tobias Menzies as the Duke of Edinburgh.

Lesley Manville will take on Princess Margaret following in the footsteps of Helena Bonham Carter.

In new stunning photos from the streaming service’s show, West could be seen looking out of the frame in a shot taken outdoors.

His hair was smoothed down into a side parting and one of his hands were placed in the pocket of an olive-coloured suit.

The tailoring was teamed with a yellow handkerchief in his top pocket and a striped tie.

The photograph of Debicki as Diana showed her in a pale pink sleeveless top, with the princess’s signature short choppy hairstyle.

She was lying on a sofa with her head propped up on a pillow, resting her chin on her hand with a typed letter resting on her lap.

Last month, Netflix unveiled the first image of Staunton as the Queen, dressed in a yellow blouse with a bow at the neck and the monarch’s famous black handbag in the crook of her arm.

The new series will also see Jonny Lee Miller join the cast as Prime Minister Sir John Major.

The drama was initially due to end after the fifth series but the show’s creator and writer Peter Morgan has since confirmed it will be extended to include a sixth outing.
