The Crown has returned on Netflix with its latest season which shows Queen Elizabeth II’s reign from the year 1979 to the early 1990s. The show remains favourite of the fans and has yet again created a buzz on social media. Apparently, the show boasts of a nimble cast and crew team but a rather unusual scene depicting a rat in the show has left fans wondering if it was a mistake.
In the opening scene of the third episode titled Fairytale in season 4, Princess Margaret is setting her nails done as she sits on a sofa while engrossed in thought. However, when the frame changed, a mouse is seen running across the carpet area towards the wall. Check out the clip of the mouse captured in the frame of the episode.
Several netizens took to social media and asked if others noticed the mouse running across the room or not. Soon a number of netizens reacted to the posts and mentioned how they had also noticed the mouse. A number of other netizens mentioned that they were wondering if the mouse in the scene was a mistake or was it intentional. Check out some of the comments by netizens below.
