While her royal in-laws and family members have been depicted on The Crown and other television biopics, Kate Middleton is finally about to get a TV portrayal of her own. Charlotte Riley (Peaky Blinders, London Has Fallen) will be playing the Duchess of Cambridge in a TV adaption of the play King Charles III. The actress is “really excited” to take on the “challenge” of playing the royal, according to BBC.
“Kate Middleton is a really interesting woman, particularly within the context of this play, and it is a challenge I am really looking forward to,” she said. The play, written by Mike Bartlett, follows an imagined story of Prince Charles (father to Prince William, father-in-law to Middleton) assuming the throne after the Queen’s death.
