Queen Elizabeth Was Reportedly Really Upset by This One Scene in The Crown
It's widely known and accepted that the hit Netflix show The Crown is a historical adaptation, meaning there are occasional inaccuracies among the fact-based storylines. Some watchers, however, have found errors — including Queen Elizabeth herself.
While the monarch has yet to outright confirm she's seen the show, there are plenty of reports that indicate she's not only tuned it, but she's actually enjoyed it. For the most part.
This week, a new report emerged that despite Queen E's cheery feelings toward The Crown in general, she was left very upset and angry at one scene in particular.
"The queen realizes that many who watch The Crown take it as an accurate portrayal of the royal family and she cannot change that," an insider told Express. "But I can convey that she was upset by the way Prince Philip is depicted as being a father insensitive to his son’s wellbeing. She was particularly annoyed at a scene in which Philip has no sympathy for a plainly upset Charles while he is flying him home from Scotland. That simply did not happen.”
The scene in question features a young Prince Charles being bullied at his Scottish school, but Prince Philip is entirely unsympathetic to his son's problems, insisting he attend the school and calling him "bloody weak" when Charles cries.
To call it unfortunate to watch is an understatement. Here's to hoping it is inaccurate after all, for Prince Charles's sake.
