At the risk of sounding arrogant, I know a thing or two about royalty, particularly when it comes to the House of Windsor. When "The Crown" premiered on Netflix in Nov. 2016 I was inundated with question from friends and family.
Everyone wanted to know the same thing: how real are the storylines? Did Princess Margaret really have to give up the love of her life?
Prior to the show's premiere, it's my belief that the story of Elizabeth II and Prince Philip as a young couple wasn't widely known. Rumors of infidelity and a lack of respect for his wife's position have followed Philip throughout the years. However, while we will never know what goes on behind closed doors, those of us who have studied the royal family can attest to the fact that the Duke of Edinburgh has nothing but respect for his wife and the position she holds.
Philip keeps two steps behind Her Majesty at all times, and does whatever he can to make sure she is the center of attention at all engagements.
As for other storylines in the series, nearly everything is spot-on.
