The rest of the confirmed cast for the show includes Janetti himself as Prince George, Orlando Bloom as Prince Harry, Condola Rashad as Meghan Markle, Iwan Rheon as Prince William, Lucy Punch as Kate Middleton, Sophie Turner as Princess Charlotte, Alan Cumming as George’s butler Owen, and Frances De La Tour as Queen Elizabeth.
This isn’t Stevens’ first go at voice acting; he currently voices Scarlemagne in the animated adventure series Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts. He has also lent his skills to an extensive list of audiobooks, and has been praised accordingly for his work as a narrator.
Stevens’ two latest films include the Netflix comedy Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga and Dave Franco’s gripping thriller The Rental. His upcoming project, Blithe Spirit (based on Noël Coward’s 1941 comic play), will arrive in theaters in the UK later this year and appears to currently be set for a US release in February 2021.
