Is Blair Making Up Dialogue With Queen?

The New York Times is claiming that the dialogue in Blair’s book A Journey” where the Queen says

“You are my 10th prime minister, the first was Winston. That was before you were born.”

Is based entirely on a fictional scene from the 2006 film “The Queen” starring Helen Mirren. An amazing coincidence reckons the film’s scriptwriter. Blair make something up to suit his purposes? Say it ain’t so…
