When talking to PureWow about the brand new “The Crown” season 2 DVD, Robert Lacey was asked if the fight between Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip (when Queen Elizabeth chased Prince Philip with a tennis racket) was fiction or real.
Robert Lacey answered:
The scene in episode eight where you see the queen and Prince Philip waiting for a photo opportunity with a koala bear, and then the queen chases him with a tennis racket and shouts at him? I couldn’t quite believe it, but I checked the research and it actually happened”
