so, i'm curious. after watching the crown they made philip seem like a real ass in his early years with elizabeth. do you think the show was overly dramatized in respect to his character or fairly accurate to how their life was in those early days? thanks and i love your blog and all the vintage brf posts you make! <3
First of all, thank you for your kind words! I’m so flattered that you like my blog and posts, I always enjoy making them myself too ♡
As for how The Crown portrayed Philip, historians and documentaries often refer to stories of how he struggled to find his role after Elizabeth became Queen, many of which were included in the show. So in that respect it’s quite accurate, but of course the show most likely used artistic license too and dramatised it for effect. But as they’re so private as a couple, we can’t really know the details of their relationship exactly. The Queen has often said in public speeches though how much she values Philip’s dedication and support over the decades. The show in general is incredibly accurate, as far as my knowledge goes. Besides some of the tiaras that they put Margaret in, but hey, I’m over it…
If you’d like to know more of those stories, I’ve continued on below. And by continued, I mean I’ve just waffled on for miles, as usual.
