Social media is abuzz after the signature of Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, made a “cameo” in Netflix’s TV show, “The Crown”.
For those who don’t know, “The Crown” is a historical drama set during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. The show is also prominent for featuring events that shaped the second half of the 20th century.
A scene from The Crown, season 4 episode 8 where the Head of Commonwealth in 1985 signed a unanimous declaration to sanction the Apartheid regime in South Africa. Itu tangan Margaret Thatcher, about to sign the declaration.ADVERTISEMENT

As pointed out by Twitter user Endie (@The_Endie), the scene is taken from the eighth episode of the fourth season of the show. Interestingly, apart from Tun M’s, the signature of former Prime Minister of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew was also spotted in the scene. Endie’s tweet has since gained over 1.2k likes at the time of writing.
Apart from that, many were also completely shocked by the “historically accurate” details of the events shown in the series. Some even expressed their hope for other notable happenings such as ‘The Dawn Raid’ incident and the ‘Buy British Last’ boycott campaign to be featured in the series.
Check out some of their reactions below:

Dah habis layan season 4 Dan sayangnya takda dimasukkan insiden 'Dawn Raid' kerana season ni lebih menumpukan kepada hubungan Diana-Charles dan juga hubungan antara Margeth Thetcher dgn the Queen. Even pasal Falklands War pon diorang briefly je ceritakan.
