The funeral of Lord Mountbatten was filmed in Season 4 of The Crown. Here is the real terrifying story of his assassination
The wait is finally over ???? The Crown Season 4 has finally arrived to save us from lockdown boredom.
This season will cover the time period from 1977 to 1990, which includes the death of Lord Mountbatten.
Louis Mountbatten was the son of Prince Louis, Prince of Battenberg, and great-grandson of Queen Victoria I..
He served in World War I, World War II, and successfully led an anti-Japanese campaign that led to the recovery of Burma.
Over the course of the first three seasons of the historical drama, Lord Mountbatten was portrayed as an uncle interfering in Prince Philip’s relationship with Queen Elizabeth.
He was also portrayed as a sympathetic friend of Prince Charles, and a military man who helped plot a coup to topple Harold Wilson’s government.
In season four, Lord Mountbatten is murdered at the age of 79, and members of the royal family attend his funeral.
On August 27, 1979, Lord Mountbatten was killed when IRA terrorists detonated a 50-pound bomb hidden in his Shadow V trawler..
The war hero and second cousin of Queen Elizabeth II was spending the day with his family in Donegal Bay, off the northwest coast of Ireland, when the bomb exploded.
The assassination of Lord Mountbatten was the first blow against the royal family but the IRA during its long campaign to expel the British from Northern Ireland and reunite them with the Republic of Ireland.
The IRA immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, as well as a bomb in County Down on the same day that killed 18 people.
They issued a statement saying: « This process is one of the discriminatory ways in which we can draw the attention of the English people to the continued occupation of our country.
â ?? Mountbatten’s death and the honor paid to him will be in sharp contrast to the indifference of the British government and the English people to the killing of more than three hundred British soldiers and the killing of Irish men, women and children at the hands of their forces.. â €
