Dominic West and Jonny Lee Miller, who play Prince Charles and Sir John Major on The Crown, have been seen in character as Prince Charles and Sir John Major.

The two went out on the Herefordshire set of the popular Netflix show to film the fifth season including a ballroom sequence modeled on Balmoral.

As he prepared to play the former Prime Minister, actor Jonny donned a grey wig and glasses.

It’s the 48-year-first old’s appearance in the role since it was revealed earlier this year. 

The Crown will resume its portrayal of the royal family in the 1990s in the second season of Netflix’s historical drama The Crown, which is set to premiere in 2022.

 

 

From 1990 until 1997, Sir John was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. From 1987 until 1990, he was Chancellor of the Exchequer and Foreign Secretary in Margaret Thatcher’s administration.
