  • Filming for Season 4 of The Crown is well underway and now, the first pictures of the infant actor playing baby Prince William have leaked.
  • The fourth season of the Netflix drama will cover the early days of Prince Charles and Princess Diana's marriage.
  • The photos of baby Prince William come from Spain, where the cast is filming scenes to depict Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s 1983 royal tour of Australia.

Prince William is officially coming to The Crown in Season 4—at least as a baby. 

New photos from behind-the-scenes of the hit Netflix drama's fourth season reveal the adorable infant actor playing the baby prince.

As ET Canada reports, the cast of the series was spotted filming in Spain, which is standing in for another part of the world in scenes depicting Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s 1983 royal tour of Australia. Diana famously changed royal tour protocol by insisting that her newborn son accompany her and Charles on the trip instead of staying behind in England as had previously been the custom.

The pictures in question (which you can see over at ET Canada's website) show baby Prince Will being carried onto the plane for the trip.

Season 4 of the royal drama will take place roughly between 1979 to 1990, meaning there's also a very good chance that we'll see Prince Harry (who was born in 1984) in the season as well.
