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

Netflix subscribers in the UK are outraged over a misprint that crept into an episode in which Queen Elizabeth II, played by Imelda Staunton, gives a speech near a milk tanker that reads “Morecombe,” this is more like the town of ‘Morecambe’, a seaside resort in the town of Lancaster in Lancashire.
The Crown’s followers went wild on social media, telling the team, “Didn’t you think we’d notice?” Another called it a schoolgirl mistake, Hello! magazine reported.
This penultimate season of the British royal family saga focuses in particular on the divorce of Prince Charles – now King Charles III. — and Princess Diana. We’ll have to wait until next year for Season 6, in which we’ll witness the sad end of Lady Di, who died in a violent car accident in Paris in 1997.
Former British Prime Minister John Major, portrayed by Jonny Lee Miller in season five, also complained about the veracity of a meeting he allegedly had with Prince Charles, his zeal for the latter to become king. Mr. Major refuted this scene, saying it was pure fiction.
Prince Charles, now 74, finally had to “wait” another 30 years before becoming king, who ascended the throne on September 8. His mother Elizabeth II died that day at the age of 96 of old age. She will have been queen for 70 years, seven months and two days.
