The scene, shot near St. Andrews, is believed to depict the exact moment the future Prince and Princess of Wales first laid eyes on each other as students. Prince William, 40, and Princess Kate, 41, have stayed mum about the exact moment that they met. In their 2010 engagement interview with ITV, Kate said it took time for them to get to know each other. “I think you said I actually went bright red when I met you and sort of scuttled off,” she told William at the time. “[I was] feeling very shy about meeting you,” People reported.
The Crown season six is expected to feature the late ’90s and early 2000s period for the royal family, including the beginning of Prince William and Kate’s love story. The Emmy-winning series premiered back in November 2016 and is expected to release its sixth and final season later this year.
