Airing tomorrow night on BBC 2 King Charles III stars the late Tim Piggott-Smith as the prince, Charlotte Riley as Kate Middleton and Oliver Chris as Prince William. The drama unfolds with Charles’s ascension to the throne. And from the look of the pic above, there’s definitely tension in the air!

However, even Chris has confessed that a scene featuring the ghost of Diana may be perceived as “pretty shocking”.“Some people will bridle at it, but I hope it’s done with enough intelligence and sensitivity not to be gratuitous. I’m very conscious that it’s a real person and a real family,” he told the Radio Times.
We have no words!
