The Crown: Fact or Fiction

9:30 AM GMT on November 12, 2023

    The Crown: Fact or Fiction - The first few episodes of the final season of The Crown debuted earlier this week (generating quite a few headlines, understandably.) To coincide there is this new podcast, hosted by Royal correspondent Natasha Livingstone, picking apart each new episode, looking at what events are grounded in fact, what events are completely fictitious and analysing whether any of the embellishments of the truth actually matters. 

    “Overall, [The Crown] broadly follows the chronology of royal life and there are plenty of mistakes,” says host and royal correspondent Robert Hardman. “Some of the mistakes don’t matter so much: people wearing the wrong medals at the wrong time, some are quite comical, people popping up several years after they were dead.”
