In the latest issue of 라디오 타임즈 잡지 (which his costar Elizabeth Debicki covers in character as 다이애나 공주), West said that Camilla, 75, greeted him as “Your Majesty” when they saw each other in 2021, an apparent nod to his casting as her husband in Netflix’s hit drama inspired by the lives of the British royal family.
