To finish off Camilla’s bridal ensemble, the costume designers also copied the Queen’s oversized white hat – which featured ivory faux flowers.
Meanwhile, Dominic West was dressed in a morning suit – featuring grey pinstripe trousers and silver waistcoat – which was based on the one King Charles wore for his 2005 nuptials.
As they filmed their final scenes for the hit series, Olivia was seen looking pensive in the couple’s wedding car.
In contrast, Dominic was seen beaming at the extras lining the high street who were waving Union Jack flags at the couple.
After Dominic stepped out the Rolls Royce first, he then proceeded to help Olivia out of the car and the actors were seen with their arms intertwined.
Breaking character in between takes, Olivia was photographed giving a cast member a thumbs up as she got back into the car.
Ed McVey, who plays the Prince of Wales in the drama, looked smart in a baby blue waist coat and red tie, which was near identical to the outfit worn by William to Charles’ nuptials in 2005.
Meanwhile, actor Luther Ford is playing Prince Harry and he looked sombre as he walked across the set.
They were joined by actors portraying Camilla’s children Laura Lopes and Tom Parker-Bowles.
The historic Kentish city had its shop fronts changed to look like Windsor, with royal plates and cakes congratulating the happy couple on show.
It is understood Charles and Camilla’s nuptials will be portrayed in a positive way, with some working on the show hoping it will mean the public will be left with a ‘warm and happy’ feeling rather than outraged over how Princess Diana’s death, at the age of 36, was depicted.
A source close to Netflix told the Mail this week: ‘For some months it has felt like the show has been goading the public by ghoulishly telling the story of Diana’s death in a heartless way, therefore causing upset to Princes William and Harry needlessly.
‘So the decision to end it so nicely, Netflix hope, will change the perception that they want to be callous, they hope it will remove the bad taste from viewers’ mouths.
‘Charles and Camilla’s wedding will be a true celebration and a really happy moment in the history of the monarchy. It also fits nicely into the King’s Coronation year.

‘But there are some staff working on the programme who see this all as a cynical move to protect Netflix from leaving its audience really upset at retelling Diana’s tragic death.’
Imelda Staunton will reprise her role as Queen Elizabeth II, with Jonathan Pryce playing her husband Prince Philip.
Elizabeth Debicki will once again appear as Princess Diana in the build-up to her death, while Dominic West plays Prince Charles.
Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of The Crown’s final series later this year, with the show already courting controversy as it plans to depict the tragic death of Princess Diana.
