Factual error: Julia Child's address on the envelope that she received from publishing company Alfred A Knopf contains a zip code.

The Young Victoria picture

Factual error: Prince Albert was not really wounded in the assassination attempt depicted near the end of the film. Eyewitness accounts differed as to whether he pushed Victoria down to protect her or simply dived for cover himself, but neither of the two bullets fired struck either of them.

Creation picture

Other mistake: Just before the ending credits, this statement appears: "He was buried with full Christian honours, in Westminister Abbey." Perhaps the extraneous comma in that sentence might not be as noticeable if Westminster had been spelled correctly. (01:38:15)
