If I understood the scence correctly in The Crwon, Prince Phillip did NOT know all that his mother went through UNTIL he read that article in The Guardian?! Is this true?

No, it didn't. That whole bit was highly fictionalized, including Phil being embarrassed of his mum and not wanting to see her, keeping her from the BBC cameras (the docu was shot when Alice was living at the palace for 2 or so years already) and more. The reporter who did the interview also never existed.

She is by far my favorite character in Season 3 of ``The Crown."

I hate how they couldn’t try to find either Greek actors for the roles, or a proper voice coach for the actors who took the parts. The fake accept is really hard to hear for those of us who speak Greek.
Ok, but she was born in Buck House and raised in England. What accent should she have had when speaking English?

She had an accent when she was speaking Greek and so did everyone else who was speaking Greek. I would accept that perhaps someone who’s not originally Greek would have an accent because Greek is not an easy language, but even those she interacts who are supposed to be Greek speak with accents in Greek. Which is why I am wondering why they couldn’t try to find Greek actors to play those parts, and have a better voice coach for her, since she is supposed to have been living in Greece for decades by that point.

Queen Mary reportedly had a German accent when speaking English (yes despite growing up in England) but they didn't portray that in Season One of the Crown either.

I have often wondered if that alleged accent was indeed true or perhaps a bit of a slur, since all things german have been considered bad and wretched.
May's mother was british, she had british nannies and was raised mainly in Britain. I fail to see how she could have developed a german accent.
As to Alice Battenberg, she was deaf, accents could not have played into her speech pattern.

I assume it was a slur considering post-WWI anti-German backlash. I've read Mary had a lovely voice and a very proper accent as an Englishwoman. She considered herself fully, wholly, utterly English.

Yeah I’m skeptical of that too.

It was actually said that the children of the last imperial family actually spoke English with a cockney accent for a bit, because their first nanny and nurses were of that background.

If Alice had any type of speech issue that made her sound different it was most likely due to her hearing issues.
