How much artistic license have the writers taken? Impossible to say, (although I personally do not believe that the supposedly planned coup against the government of Harold Wilson has ever overcome the fantasies of some conservatives).

There is also tragedy (Chapter Three focuses on the disaster in the mining village of Alberfan in Wales, which occurred in 1966, an event that, to date, remains a cause of regret for Elizabeth II). One can only imagine the challenge that must have represented for a naturally emotional actress such as Colman (her interpretation of another English queen, in the Oscar-winning film The favorite, is precisely that: electrifying emotion), remain glacial during some of the most heartbreaking events They are portrayed in the series.
