The popular series The Crown is being filmed in Andratx. Several locations have been chosen by the film crew to develop the plot of the sixth season of the Netflix drama. The actors who play Lady Di and Prince William – Elizabeth Debicki and Rufus Kampa – have taken a boat trip around the waters of Port d’Andratx. The images of the filming have been captured by the newspapers Ultima Hora and Diario de Mallorca, which have also focused on Dodi Al-Fayed’s character in the series, played by Khalid Abdalla.
Other locations chosen for the filming of The Crown in Andratx are Villa California and the jetty of the Villa Castillo de Mallorca. However, in the Netflix series these sequences will emulate being in Sainz-Tropez, where Dodi Al-Fayed’s father, Mohamed, will play host to the couple.
Andratx thus serves as a set to immortalise Diana and Dodi’s last months of romance in The Crown series. The couple took refuge in Sainz-Tropez, where they attracted the attentive gaze of the paparazzi before the fateful and well-remembered accident that took place in 1997. Although miles away from the real-life setting, Andratx perfectly evokes the original setting: the Mediterranean Sea.
The filming of The Crown in Andratx is yet another reason to visit the town and follow in the footsteps of the characters in the series.
