THE actor who plays the Prince William during his university years in Netflix show The Crown was seen jogging in St Andrews as filming for the next series continues in the town.

Ed McVey was spotted wearing tracksuit bottoms and a hoodie with the University of St Andrews logo on it while being filmed running at the town’s East Scores.

The 21-year-old was also seen having a bite to eat amongst the camera crew at St Andrews harbour during a break in filming on Thursday.

The new series of the drama is set to feature William’s time at the university, where in 2001 he met Kate Middleton, who he would marry a decade later in Westminster Abbey.

Sightings of Dominic West, 53, who is playing William’s father Charles, and Meg Bellamy, 19, who is playing the Princess of Wales, have previously been reported in the town.

West and McVey have also been spotted together with scores of extras holding Union flags and Saltires in front of the Fife town’s historic St Salvator’s Chapel.

William and Kate became friends during their time at university.

The pair graduated from the university, which is Scotland’s oldest, in 2005 and briefly split in 2007.

In the series, Elizabeth Debicki will reprise her role as William’s mother Diana, with Imelda Staunton continuing as the Queen and Jonathan Pryce as the Duke of Edinburgh.
