    Here's How The Cast Of "The Crown" Season 5 Looks Compared To The Real Royals

    I am once again amazed at the resemblance between real Diana and TV Diana.

    The Crown just released the first images of the cast of Season 5 in character, featuring Dominic West, Imelda Staunton, and Elizabeth Debicki.

    The Crown's casting/wardrobe/hair/makeup departments have once again nailed the iconic Princess Di look. 

    Now that we know how Charles, Queen Elizabeth, and Diana are going to look in the new season, let's see how the whole cast compares to the rest of the royals:

    2. Dominic West as Charles, Prince of Wales

    Josh O'Connor played Charles in seasons 3 and 4. We can all agree that Dominic doesn't look as much like Charles as Josh did, but the wig styling here is still very impressive.
