When asked about taking part in storylines involving Princess Diana (Emma Corrin), he said: “The Diana stuff has been thrilling to play.”
He added: “For me, that’s the juicy stuff. The question of having to wait for your mum to die in order for your life to have meaning, and what that means for a young man. It’s just bizarre.
“Charles doesn’t necessarily want power, but until she dies, what the hell is he doing? What is his existence? He has no purpose.”
The star is particularly fascinated with the Prince’s conundrum with his mother the Queen, needing to pass away for him to become King.

Josh revealed how he was able to get into the role of Charles by purchasing a school uniform online to imagine life in the heir’s shoes – a life at the Scottish school Gordonstoun that he once despised.
The God’s Own Country actor told Esquire magazine: “I went on the website and ordered the most public school shorts I could find. Crispy white shorts.
“I got those, and I soaked them in mud and left them in a sports bag for a week and cut out the material and stuck that.
He continued: “I bought some aftershave, the oakiest one I could find, the most Charles-y one I could imagine.”

Despite playing the role future king, Josh insisted the experience still hasn’t won his interest in the royal family.
He said: “It’s quite useful, because if anyone tries to trick you into saying anything about the real royal family, I can’t, because I don’t know anything.
“When we went over to the Golden Globes, people were asking us about Harry and Meghan and I had to say, ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about’, because I really don’t.”
