The Crown has recreated the Princess of Wales as a waitress as a student at the University of St Andrews.
The latest season of the hit Netflix series, which is currently filming in Scotland, will cover the early days of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s romance.
Last night, 19-year-old actress Meg Bellamy was photographed filming scenes for the upcoming season at a pizzeria.
Dressed in a dark red shirt and black vest, Meg wore a tag with Kate’s name written on the front.
As part of the Princess’ uniform, the actress was seen with her long brown hair pulled back into a ponytail and also wore minimal makeup for the scene.
Meg Bellamy, 19, was photographed filming scenes at an Italian restaurant in St Andrews last night. She was seen wearing a red shirt and vest.
The footage shows Meg serving customers seated in the window of the Italian restaurant.
During the scene, someone outside the restaurant catches Meg’s eye, and she then proceeds to sheepishly greet them.
Other images show the actress looking thoughtfully out the window before returning to take a customer’s order.
In 2019, the Princess of Wales opened up about her experience as a waitress on the Christmas TV special A Berry Royal Christmas.
During one segment, Mary made a mocktail, which she then passed to Kate to take out to the guests.
Kate later told the host: “It reminds me of my college days when I was doing a little bit of waitressing.”
When asked by Mary if she was good at work, Kate answered very honestly.
She laughed and replied, ‘No, I was terrible!’
The actress was photographed sheepishly greeting someone outside the restaurant before taking more orders.
Kate Middleton, who previously admitted she was a ‘terrible’ waitress, pictured at her graduation ceremony in June 2005.
Yesterday, Meg also filmed a scene with an actor who seemed to be playing one of Kate’s old college crushes.
Before the Prince and Princess of Wales became a couple, Kate was believed to be dating fourth-year law student Rupert Finch.
Photos captured on set showed Meg walking hand in hand with another man as Ed McVey, who has been cast as Prince William, walks by.
Ed looked like young Prince William this afternoon, dressed in a red bomber jacket, navy blue sweater, and jeans.
Meanwhile, Meg donned a tweed ensemble with a forest green jacket and brown boots.
The cast of The Crown has descended on St Andrews in Scotland, where Kate and William first met when they were students.
Meg Bellamy was photographed watching someone outside the restaurant and taking orders from customers.
She seemed thoughtful as she looked at someone outside the window. It looks like the final season of the Netflix series will focus on Kate and William’s relationship.
Meg was all smiles as she talked to cast members between takes in St Andrews last night.
Ed McVey and Meg Bellamy filmed a scene believed to involve one of the Princess of Wales’s former flames on the set of The Crown’s sixth series in St Andrews yesterday.
The couple looked in high spirits and were seen joking around between breaks in filming.
It seems that the final and sixth series of The Crown will focus on the blossoming love story between William and Kate.
Meg’s rise will be meteoric after she was plucked out of obscurity to play the Princess of Wales when she submitted a self-recorded audition to the show’s creators after seeing the role advertised on social media.
Announcing the casting on Instagram last September, she wrote: “Pinch please… I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be playing Kate Middleton in Series 6 of Netflix’s The Crown.”
“It is such an honor to join the most incredible cast and crew and I will strive to do Kate justice.”
And it looks like the actress will be able to draw on her own life experience for the role, with some striking similarities between her and the royals.
Both Home Counties girls, Meg grew up just 22 miles away from Kate’s childhood home in Berkshire.
At school, it seems that both the Princess of Wales and the actress who plays her were model students. Each left a strong impression on their teachers as kind and humble personalities with a thirst for learning, natural leadership skills, and a passion for theatre.
It’s been a busy few days of filming for the show’s cast and crew, with Ed McVey jogging and eating chips on the St Andrews harbor as filming for the sixth series of The Crown continued in the student town in early August. this week.
During yesterday’s filming, Ed was seen rummaging through a box of chips while chatting to other members of the film crew between takes in a nod to the Prince of Wales students’ favorite takeaway.

The Prince and Princess of Wales returned to their favorite restaurant and treated themselves to lunch and ice cream, which they ate on a quayside bench, away from prying eyes.
