Actor Josh O’Connor, who plays Prince Charles on the show, talked about the upcoming season and admitted fans will see a “more flawed version” of his character.

“It’s a more flawed version of that character…someone who has been wronged on numerous occasions and is stuck in an unhappy marriage at points,” O’Conner shared. “We see edges of his darkness.”
