Dominic West will play unfaithful Prince Charles in the final season of The Crown

LOVE-tangle actor Dominic West is set to play unfaithful Prince Charles in the final two series of The Crown.

The Netflix role comes after West, 51, was pictured last week smooching with 31-year-old Lily James in Rome.

He later put on a show of unity with wife Catherine Fitzgerald, 49.

West — who got rave reviews for US TV series The Affair — has been lined up to play the Prince of Wales at the time of his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles, now his second wife.

A TV insider said: “This will be a prestigious casting for Dominic.

“But the irony of it won’t be lost on anyone.

“Show bosses looked at several stars for the sought-after role, but he was by far their preferred actor. Now both parties are hammering out a deal.”

The late Princess Diana will be played by The Night Manager actress Elizabeth Debicki, 30.

Charles’s father, the Duke of Edinburgh, was played in The Crown’s first two series by one-time Doctor Who Matt Smith, 37 — a former boyfriend of Lily.

West was in Rome filming The Pursuit of Love for the BBC, in which he plays Lily’s father.

He has previously been on good terms with the Royal Family.

He is a Prince’s Trust ambassador and raced Prince Harry to the South Pole in 2013 to raise money for charity Walking With The Wounded.

Last night Netflix declined to comment.
