It is the latest signing for the company, which has recently snapped up the likes of Rap Sh!t’s KaMillion, Beef star Joseph Lee and Succession’s Zoë Winters.
The Crown marks McVey’s on-screen debut; he is a recent graduate of the Drama Centre in London. He also understudied in the play Camp Siegfried at the Old Vic in London.
He will play the prince in his later teen years – Rufus Kampa assumes the role of William at age 15.
McVey’s plot lines will include William’s courtship of Kate, including how they met when both were studying Art History at the University of St Andrews in Fife, Scotland in 2001. The pair, married in 2011, are now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
McVey continues to be represented by UK-based AHA Talent.
