For an entire generation of Americans, Prince Philip is a blank. Arian Chernock, associate professor of history at Boston University, said: “People have a certain feeling that he is the older gentleman next to Elizabeth, but there is actually no exact feeling about who he is and who he is. ”
But it can be said that the “crown” can also stimulate young people’s interest in the royal family.
The Emmy-nominated actor said: “99 shots, but it was a game. What style. Thank you for serving the old school, it would not be the same without you.
“The Crown” highlights the difficult adjustments faced by the young couple who became queen sooner than expected after Elizabeth was married. This also shows that in an era full of chauvinism and sexism, Philip must be tested behind his wife.
Chernock said: “The role of the princeling is indeed challenging. There are few precedents for those who have held this position, and little is known about the specific job description of the position.”
Despite the modern vision, many Americans have now formed a certain view of Prince Philip because of the “crown.”
A fan of the show, Mary McClelland (Mary McClelland), who lives in Chicago, said that before watching the Netflix series, she had a neutral view of the queen’s husband.
“I don’t think he is the best father in the world. I think he can do the best in his time, the society he lives in and the generation he lives in.” McClelland told the United States before Philip died. Cable News Network. “But I don’t have to blame him for who he is.”
Although many Americans may not have a deep impression of Prince Philip, his reputation in the UK has continued to grow over the decades.
In an interview with CNN before Philip’s death, Chernok said: “He is actually quite mean. In the UK, he is indeed known for some mistakes.” “So his sense of humor and fun can sometimes make He is in trouble.”
Before Philip’s death, Debra Birnbaum, the former executive editor of Variety Magazine, said: “I think the show has made him humane to a large extent, showing the man behind the crown. Things.” “There are better or worse views of who this person is.”
Tobias Menzies played the elder Philips in a later performance of the show, quoting Shakespeare in tribute to the late royal family.
For some avid fans, each episode of “The Crown” led to an Internet trip to learn more about the people involved, including Prince Philip.
McClelland, the communications director of the non-profit organization, said: “This allowed me to do more research on him and every aspect of the show.” “For me, how crazy and crazy he grew up is, it’s just fascinating. Fascinated. I mean, if he were a modern person, I would think,’Let me get treatment right away!'”
However, she added: “You know, today’s royals seem to admire him and love him. Therefore, no matter what his grandchildren are, no matter how they talk about him, in his article, as long as he is a legend Character, no matter who he is.”
Birnbaum said that the creator and writer of the show, Peter Morgan, has worked hard to make “The Crown” based on reality.
Birnbaum said: “You will never know what two people say to each other in a private conversation, but you will know the facts.” “The conversation may be imagined, but [Prince Philip] Indeed, because of an airplane crash, he lost his favorite sister and became a pilot. This illustrates a very interesting person. ”
Prince Philip also played an important role in modernizing the monarchy-this is emphasized in the show. Chenock said: “His commitment to technology, such as advocating for home movies or trying to update the system at Buckingham Palace, is part of it.” “And he is definitely a member of Elizabeth, and he persevered.”
In fact, in all the years they have been together, Elizabeth’s success should be attributed to her married man to some extent. Before “The Crown”, so many Americans knew very little about this man.
Chenock said: “Why did Elizabeth succeed? She succeeded because she has been steadfast.” “I think Philip has a lot to do with this.”
