Dominic West cuts a dapper figure in a navy suit at ATG Summer Party – with just months to go until he’s seen as Prince Charles in The Crown season 5


He’s set to portray Prince Charles in 2022’s fifth season of hit Netflix show The Crown.

But Dominic West, 51, looked worlds away from his upcoming character on Monday, when he swapped the Prince of Wales’ strict tailoring for a funky, patterned green shirt worn beneath a smart-casual blazer and matching trousers.

Stepping out in style at the Ambassador Theatre Group’s Summer Party at Kensington Palace in London, the actor appeared in high spirits while posing for photographers.

Dominic teamed his outfit with trendy trainers as he kicked off his week at the star-studded event.

He was also seen mingling with the likes of actors Stevie Basaula and Elizabeth McGovern.

The star appeared in high spirits while enjoying a night out in the capital.

It comes after The Crown bosses released first look images of Dominic and his co-star Elizabeth Debicki as Prince Charles and Princess Diana last month.

It was first reported in October that the actor would play the heir to the throne, yet Netflix’s announcement is the first confirmation of the news.

A TV insider said: ‘Show bosses looked at several stars for the sought-after role, but he was by far their preferred actor. Now both parties are hammering out a deal.’

The new images of the duo show Dominic gazing into the distance in a striking outdoor shoot, while Elizabeth, 30, nailed Diana’s trademark pensive gaze as she reclined on a sofa while reading letters.

Dominic is taking on the role of Prince Charles at the time of his affair from Diana, Princess of Wales, with his second wife Camilla Parker Bowles.

His casting set tongues wagging as the news came to light shortly after Dominic was spotted getting cosy with his Pursuit Of Love co-star Lily James, meaning his role as the unfaithful royal was seen as ‘ironic’ to many.

It was announced last year that Elizabeth would take over from Emma Corrin and play Diana for the fifth and sixth series, which will cover Diana’s death in 1997.

The actress said of her casting last year: ‘Princess Diana’s spirit, her words and her actions live in the hearts of so many. It is my privilege and honour to be joining this masterful series, which has had me absolutely hooked from episode one.’

While the new snap is the first official shot, earlier this month Elizabeth was seen on the set of The Crown for the first time, as she filmed scenes at Ardverikie Lodge Scotland alongside two young actors playing Prince Harry and Prince William.

Shooting at the majestic Ardverikie Estate, Elizabeth was the spitting image of the late princess and was dressed in light-wash jeans, a smart navy blazer jacket and a salmon pink shirt.
