Some Of The Main Inaccuracies About The British Monarchy Presented In 'The Crown'

Through the two seasons of the Netflix historical drama, there have been a lot of outrageous revelations about the Windsors’ intimate life and even English history, but some have pointed out to several inaccuracies. However well done “The Crown” is, it is still a television drama that takes some liberties for the sake of entertainment, and it should not be mistaken for a history lesson. Take a look at some of the things that are creatively portrayed on the show.

Rumors and myths about the British Royal are in fact intertwined into the plot to keep things interesting. On Season 2, especially, Prince Philip, the Queen’s husband, is portrayed as a really awful character, something that Elizabeth II is reportedly not happy about, even though she reportedly “loved” the first season.

CHAPTER 1

PRINCE PHILIP AND PRINCE CHARLES

One of the things that the Queen disagrees with is that Season 2 makes Philip look bad, being portrayed as an insensitive father to his eldest son Prince Charles. In episode 9, for example, Philip calls Charles “bloody weak” because he doesn’t defend himself from bullies. According to Glamour, the Queen said that Philip’s lack of sympathy to his son is an invention.

CHAPTER 2

THE PROFUMO AFFAIR

Named after then-Secretary of State for War John Profumo, this scandal involved not only powerful (and married) English men throwing parties with many young “call girls,” but it also represented a security threat for the UK, when one of those girls became involved both with Profumo and a Soviet military officer.

While the show suggests that Philip was among the men that attended these infamous parties organized by Dr. Stephen Ward, there is not any evidence of this.
