The Queen was absolutely RAGING about this part in The Crown

Ooh, she's not happy.

Since The Crown landed on our Netflix screens in 2016, we've been hooked. The adaptation of the royal family's life is dramatic, enthralling, and basically everything you could want from a TV show.

It's even been reported that Queen Elizabeth herself likes to watch the show... or used to anyway.

A source close to the Queen said that while she mostly enjoys the series, there was one particular scene she didn't like at all.

"The queen realizes that many who watch The Crown take it as an accurate portrayal of the royal family and she cannot change that," an insider told Express.

"But I can convey that she was upset by the way Prince Philip is depicted as being a father insensitive to his son’s wellbeing. She was particularly annoyed at a scene in which Philip has no sympathy for a plainly upset Charles while he is flying him home from Scotland. That simply did not happen.”

The scene the Queen is talking about depicts a young Prince Charles being bullied at his Scottish school, however his dad Prince Philip is entirely unsympathetic and insists he attend the school. He also calls him "bloody weak" when Charles cries.
