  1. That's kind of where I am...I love the show and I don't mind fictional portrayals of things, but I'm also frustrated that they thought it was necessary here. There was plenty of potential for drama and good storytelling without just making things up.

  2. I don't think the show has indicated either way whether the staff speak English or not, but historically Ragni (Martha's lady-in-waiting) did speak English (and French, Swedish, Norwegian, and Finnish).

So yes she definitely could have understood White House staff gossiping in English. :-) I'm a Scandinavian royal history nerd. ;-)
