The film strongly implies that John Dudley, the Duke of Northumberland, keeps his head (literally) by converting to Catholicism. In fact, he was executed well before Lady Jane Grey was.
In the movie, when we first see Lady Jane Grey, we see a painting of Helena Bonham Carter as Jane. The portrait this was based on was long believed to be the only known portrait of Lady Jane but is now reclassified as Henry VIII's last wife, Catherine Parr. It is in the National Portrait Gallery, London, England.
