McVey is an alumnus of Drama Centre London, and has worked in several theatre productions but is yet to make his professional screen debut, The Times reported.

The pair will play William and Kate as young adults during the time that they met at St Andrews University in 2001.

It will see Dominic West star as Charles and Elizabeth Debicki as Diana, Princess of Wales.
