The Crown’s Meg Bellamy Doesn’t Think She Looks Like Kate Middleton

She might be playing her on the small screen but she’s still not convinced that she looks anything like her.

The Crown’s Meg Bellamy Doesn’t Think She Looks Like Kate Middleton

The 19-year-old actress says that she’s never been told in her life that she looks anything like Prince William’s wife. But that certainly didn’t stop her from auditioning for the role.

Meg says that her neighbor suggested that she audition for the role after she saw a casting call posted on social media for it.

The actress put it this way in an interview with The Telegraph,I never got [told] that and I still think maybe I don’t, but with the amazing hair and makeup teams and the costume department, once everything’s put together, you have to have an essence.

I didn’t have an agent at the time so I was just doing everything that I could on my own, self-submitting for student films and shorts. Then in April last year, the opportunity [for The Crown] popped up on my Twitter, and at the same time, my neighbor sent it to me and told me that I should go for it.”

She continued, “I remember looking at the picture of Kate on the brief and trying to work out exactly where she’d applied her bronzer so that I could do it exactly right, trying to unleash my inner makeup artist. With every audition, I just watched and watched [Kate]. Reading about her and listening to her was so important both before and during. During the time period that I play her, there’s no recording of her speaking so you have to picture her younger.”

The first part of The Crown Season 6 will debut on November 16th while part two will follow on December 14th.
