Earlier on this year we found out that Netflix's hit series 'The Crown' would be getting an extra season, taking the total seasons to 6.

For the final 2 seasons Imelda Staunton will be taking over the role of Queen Elizabeth from Olivia Colman and Claire Foy before her. Now Netflix have revealed who will be playing Prince Phillip for the final two seasons...

British actor Jonathan Pryce, who you may recognise as The High Sparrow from Game of Thrones, will be taking on the role.

"I am delighted to be working with Netflix again. The positive experience I had making 'The Two Popes' has given me the confidence to tackle the daunting prospect of portraying Prince Philip." he said.

"To be doing so with Peter Morgan in the company of Imelda and Lesley will be a joy."

There is currently no release date for the next season of The Crown. The first 3 seasons are available to stream on Netflix.
