Bellamy, who will play Kate Middleton in the series, has less experience, although she has done some amateur theater and film and now this high-profile series that is sure to mark her career. Kampa and Bellamy were selected after passing several auditions to which they arrived summoned by a casting from social networks.

As happened with Emma Corrin, who played a young Princess Diana in the fourth season, and Josh O’Connor, who took on the role of Prince Charles in the third and fourth seasons, who rose to fame for these roles, the new protagonists will surely go the same way, given the impact that the series has.
