The Real Story Behind ‘The Crown’s’ Cambridge Spy Ring Is Crazy

2

Sir Anthony Blunt worked as Queen Elizabeth’s advisor in art. He helped her pick her artwork, and was knighted for his efforts in 1956. But, in 1964, it was revealed that he was a member of the elusive Cambridge 5, a group of men recruited from Cambridge, the prestigious university, to disseminate inside information to the Soviets. 

Samuel West portrayed the character on the show, and though he was only briefly seen during the moment when Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) found out he was really working against her, the story is far more complicated than that.
