One joked, "Prince Charles has no business looking this good."

West and Debicki will play the famous royal couple in seasons 5 and 6 of The Crown.

The Australian actress said the role is a dream come true.

"Princess Diana's spirit, her words, and her actions live in the hearts of so many.

"It is my true privilege and honour to be joining this masterful series, which has had me hooked from episode one."

Charles and Diana's marriage breakdown is set to be a main storyline in season 5.

The fifth season is due to take place in the 1990s, meaning Diana's untimely passing in 1997 could be a featured storyline.

Season 5 is due to air in 2022.
