How do Netflix drama portraits compare to men in real life?
In “The Crown”, a charismatic military officer takes over as the heart of the future queen, but is annoyed by having to place second and violating the restrictions of etiquette and loyalty. In the end, they became a trustworthy pair of patriarchs.
How does the Netflix TV series portrait of Prince Philip Prince, who died on Friday, compare with the real life and life led by Queen Elizabeth II?
The title clearly states that Prince Felipe lives in the shadow of his wife, and Felipe does the same in The Crown. But there are some plots that portray the man more completely, or at least the character (the young man played by Matt Smith, later Tobias Menzies and Jonathan Pu Rice (played by Jonathan Pryce).
Peter Morgan is the creator of the series, which has been discontinued before the fifth penultimate quarter of 2022 is released. He said that the “crown” is a product of historical research and imagination, including scenes that should not be regarded as facts.
For example, since no confession from all parties involved, we don’t know whether Felipe was as sensitive to Ana as he was growing up in Carlos, as the Crown said. As stiff. Or thinking about the marital infidelity in Felipe’s drama.
So far, the film series has worn Ferry into middle age, covering only half of the prince’s nearly 100 years of life. When he uttered explosive phrases to women and people of color, the “relentless moment” was also forgotten on the “crown.”
However, there are aspects of the Greek-born prince’s life that are comparable to the novels in the novel, which are portrayed from a favorable perspective in The Crown: a bold and tireless spirit dedicated to ending his duties. And his duties. Dedicated to the Queen and her country.
In “The Crown”: Felipe is unwilling to give up traditional male privileges. He wants his son to use the surname (Mountbatten) instead of Elizabeth’s surname (Windsor). The answer is no.
When Elizabeth’s father, King George VI, died and ascended to the throne, Felipe gave up his military service because of his royal residence. The second is the lawsuit with Isabel, including her reluctance to kneel during the coronation ceremony.
In the end, they found a balance, and Philip proved that it was a precious part of an affectionate marriage.
Actually: According to Gyles Brandreth’s book on the royal couple “Philip and Elizabeth: Portraits of Royal Marriage”, when Felipe lost the battle to use the Mountbatten surname, He complained: “I’m just a damn amoeba.” He thinks he is a man who can’t give his name to his child.
Eight years later, the descendants of the royal couple decided to use compound surnames, such as Harry and Meghan’s son Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor.
Regardless of whether he protested or not, Felipe knelt in front of the newly crowned queen in 1952, vowing to become “a servant of her life and secular worship.”
On the occasion of the 50th wedding anniversary, Isabel called him “my strength and my eternity.”
In “The Crown”: In 1969, Felipe was attracted by television reports about humans reaching the moon in search of new emotions. After routine royal activities in dental and textile factories, the prince who has received pilot training has the opportunity to control a private jet.
He took the plane to the end of space, and when the pilot protested that the rumble of the plane had reached its limit, Felipe replied: “Maybe, but, it seems, we are still alive for only one minute.”
Felipe met with American astronauts while visiting the United States in the Victory Circle and told them that his position and marriage prevented him from doing “what I want to do as a man and as an adventurer.”
Actually: During World War II, Philip took real action, serving on warships and destroyers. He was decorated and reached the rank of Lieutenant in the Royal Navy at the age of 21.
Although he had a complete royal commitment schedule and led hundreds of charitable organizations, he learned to fly in the 1950s, was an avid polo player, sailed yachts, painted and collected art. He still drove at the age of 97, but quit after overturning his Land Rover truck in the crash.
People of faith
In “The Crown”: Felipe is asked to use Windsor Castle as a reason to create a spiritual retreat for priests who need inspiration in the middle age. He laughed at the plan as “hot air”, but he agreed and finally found comfort in this group therapy for men.
“What is your belief?” He remembered his mother asking him worriedly. Then she told the group members and her department head: “I admit here that I have lost her… I am talking about’help’ here.
In fact, according to the historian Robert Lacey’s companion book The Crown, Robin Woods, then Dean of Windsor, proposed the creation of the Saint in 1966. George House, and Philip became its co-founder and passionate fundraiser. The center said that the center debates contemporary issues.
Woods and Philip are friends for life, and the prince once commented on their sermons at St. George’s Church in Windsor. Felipe’s funeral will be held there on April 17.
Philip was baptized in the Greek Orthodox Church. Although he is an Anglican and married to the highest authority of the Church of England, he is also a visitor to the Greek monastery community and the religious shrine of Mount Athos. In the UK, leaders of all faiths said that he was very interested in spiritual affairs.
His coat of arms said: “God is my help.”
In the DIANA team
In “The Crown”: When Diana Spencer was introduced to Balmoral Castle in Scotland for a family gathering, she and Felipe successfully married on Hunting Day , He supports the marriage with Carlos.
The relationship between Carlos and Diana has deteriorated. Diana tells Felipe that she is considering separating from her husband and the royal family, but she finds that the royal family is not sensitive. Felipe warned her not to make this decision, and offered her another point of view: Everything is outside the queen: she said, “This person, the only important person” is her.
In fact: in the letter between Diana and Felipe, it is said that it was a leak. Felipe supported Diana and criticized his son’s extramarital affairs with his current wife Camilla.
However, after Diana spoke in a frank TV interview and revealed her biography, Felipe’s tone obviously became harsher, writing that she must be “fit” or leave the family.
