Major royal wedding to be featured in ‘The Crown’ Season 6

The stars of “The Crown” will hang up their tiaras and teacups after the hit Netflix drama concludes this fall.

As anticipation for the royal series builds, the streamer released just a tiny tidbit of what’s to come when Season 6 premieres later this year.

The company posted a tweet on Monday teasing one plot point of the season — Prince (now King) Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles (now Queen Camilla)’s 2005 wedding.

Alongside a scene showing the nuptials’ wedding invite, they wrote: “After six seasons, seven years and three casts, @TheCrownNetflix comes to an end later this year.”

“We’ll be back with more soon, but here’s a hint at what’s to come in our final season.”

The card noted the marital ceremony as April 9, 2005, at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle — details that mirror real life, as Camilla, 75, and Charles, 74, did wed on that date and place.

Camilla was given the title of the Duchess of Cornwall following her marriage. Charles’ sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, as well as Camilla’s son, Tom, and daughter, Laura, were also in attendance at the lavish event.

Season 6 of “The Crown” will debut on Netflix later this year.

The final series will take fans into the modern era, and will showcase how the royal family endured the tumultuous late ‘90s and into the early 2000s.

Dominic West is reprising his role as the former Prime of Wales while Olivia Williams is portraying Camilla.

Both stars appeared in last year’s Season 5.

Other returning stars include Imelda Staunton as Queen Elizabeth II, Jonathan Pryce as the Duke of Edinburgh and Lesley Manville as Princess Margaret.

The series will show how the couple met while studying at Scotland’s University of St Andrews back in 2001.

Actor Luther Ford is playing a young and rebellious Harry. One conflict that the season will also tackle is the aftermath of Harry’s infamous Nazi costume scandal of 2005.

The Duke of Sussex, 38, had worn a WWII-era German officer’s uniform to a party, complete with a swastika armband, at the time.

No specific premiere date has been announced for the final season of “The Crown.”
