A gross error in “The Crown” stirs passions in England

With its impressive production budget, “The Crown” series should be flawless, which it has often been since its debut on Netflix in 2016. The teams are not immune to mistakes, however, which is the case in the most recent season, the fifth, the one that looks at the 1990s, a decade during which the British royal family was quite shaken.

Netflix subscribers are fuming in England over a misprint that slipped into an episode where Queen Elizabeth II, played by Imelda Staunton, gives a speech near a milk tanker that reads: ” Morecombe”, while it is rather the town of “Morecambe”, a seaside resort in the city of Lancaster, in Lancashire.

On social media, followers of ‘The Crown’ went wild, telling the team, ‘didn’t you think we’d notice?’ Another spoke of a schoolgirl mistake, “Hello!” magazine reported.

This penultimate season of the saga of the British royal family focuses in particular on the divorce of Prince Charles – now King Charles III – and Princess Diana. We will have to wait until next year for the sixth season, in which we will witness the sad end of Lady Di, who died in 1997, in a violent car accident in Paris.

Former British Prime Minister John Major, who is portrayed by Jonny Lee Miller in the fifth season, also complained about the veracity of a meeting he allegedly had with Prince Charles about his eagerness for the latter to become king. Mr. Major refuted this scene, saying it is pure fiction. Prince Charles, now 74 years old, finally had to “wait” 30 more years before becoming king, he who ascended the throne on September 8th. His mother, Elizabeth II, died of old age that day at the age of 96. She will have been queen for 70 years, seven months and two days.
