‘The Crown’ to recreate Kate’s catwalk seduction of William in sheer dress

Many of the British royal family’s most pivotal moments have been recreated for “The Crown” over the last five seasons.

The sixth and final season, set to drop this fall on Netflix, will feature one of the most significant recent events for the dynasty: namely, when Prince William became smitten with now-wife Kate Middleton.

The royal drama will depict the evening when the Duke of Cambridge first saw Middleton, now both 41, in all her sheer glory.

The couple met while they were both studying at Scotland’s University of St Andrews back in 2001.

However, it has long been noted that the exact moment when William fell head over heels for his duchess was on March 27, 2002 — when she walked in a fashion show rocking a see-through mini-dress.

The event will be shown on an episode of “The Crown,” with  Ed McVey, 22, portraying William and Meg Bellamy, 20, playing Middleton.

Netflix producers appeared at the Edinburgh TV Festival recently, where they unveiled stills from episodes of the upcoming sixth season, according to the Sun.

The images showcased included the young actors staring lovingly at each other in the St Andrews library.

Another snap showed McVey and Bellamy strolling around the university campus.

Another photo that was revealed saw actor Luther Ford — who is playing a teenaged Prince Harry — almost hitting someone with a rifle.

The final season will take on the royal family as they encounter tragedy and turmoil from 1997 to 2005.

One crisis the final season will show is the aftermath of Harry’s infamous Nazi costume scandal of 2005 when he wore a WWII-era German officer’s uniform to a party, complete with a swastika armband.

Perhaps the most pivotal event that will be featured this season is the death of Princess Diana (played by Elizabeth Debicki).

The Princess of Wales perished in a car crash in Paris on Aug. 31, 1997.

“The Crown” executive producer Suzanne Mackie said at the TV festival that they filmed the passing of Diana with “enormous sensitivity.”

“The show might be big and noisy, but we’re not,” said Mackie. “We’re thoughtful people and we’re sensitive people. There were very careful, long conversations about how we were going to do it.

“The audience will judge it in the end, but I think it’s been delicately, thoughtfully recreated,” she added.

The showrunner went on: “Elizabeth Debicki is an extraordinary actress, and she was so thoughtful and considerate. She loved Diana. There’s a huge amount of respect from us all — I hope that’s evident.”
