Is everything presented in The Crown real?

By Sunil Kumar

The Great Smog of London episode is dramatized; and historically inaccurate. Although the pollution thing happened; the way the government deals with was a TV invention, and the British did something to rectify the situation; but only after considerable debate in 1956. It was less of a political crisis than projected.

Winston Churchill’s secretary Venetia Scott is an invented fictional character; to bring some charm into dour Downing Street. Her life and death after being mowed down by a Routemaster bus is obviously a story.

The conversations are imagined and invented; but overall; the Crown sticks quite closely to the real story; altering it here and there.
