While The Crown has become one of the most expensive TV productions in history, some historical inaccuracies have irked real-life individuals, including the royal family and history enthusiasts. The series, which covers various members of the British monarchy during Queen Elizabeth II's reign, often takes creative liberties with historical events. This has led to notable disparities between on-screen depictions and actual occurrences.

Despite being labeled as a historical drama rather than a documentary series, The Crown has faced criticism for its fictionalized portrayal of real-life events.

Similar British shows like Victoria and Peaky Blinders have taken similar creative approaches to historical storytelling, blurring the lines between fact and fiction.

As the show continues into its sixth season, recent complaints about its slow pacing have not deterred fans from enjoying the royal family's journey through modernization. While the series acknowledges that real events may have inspired its plot, viewers should remember that The Crown is ultimately a work of fiction.
