It’s the kiss that sealed the romance between the future King and Queen.
Against the background of what appears to be a busy bar, Prince William and Kate Middleton smooch during their years as students at St Andrews University.
The scene is imagined in preview footage from the forthcoming second half of the final series of The Crown.
Netflix released the first four instalments yesterday but the streaming giant is already plugging the six parts that will bring the curtain down on the hit series.
It has also been revealed that the later episodes will depict Wills Mania spreading across the globe as the future King, played by Ed McVey, 24, grows into a handsome teenager.

And the final episode will reimagine the 2005 wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles, as they were then.
A Netflix source said: ‘The first half of the final series focused on the tragic death of Princess Diana which was a particularly difficult time for the Royal family.
‘However, the second half is a lot more joyous as Wills Mania grips the world and he meets his future wife Katie Middleton at university. Their first kiss is one of those magical, joyous moments, and their relationship and love for each other is celebrated throughout the final part of the series.
‘It’s going to leave the viewers on a real high as the series comes to its emotional end. It was the perfect era of the Royal family to end on.’
William and Kate met at St Andrews in 2001 and their romance is said to have blossomed after he watched her model a sheer dress in a student fashion show – a scene that will also reportedly be depicted in the show. They graduated in 2005.
