The fourth season of royal drama The Crown sees a number of exciting developments such as the introduction of Princess Diana (Emma Corrin) and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson).
But Malaysians were particularly excited about one scene, from Episode Eight of the new season.
Thatcher was signing a statement about the Commonwealth countries' anti-apartheid stance against South Africa.
As Thatcher turned the page to place her signature, the signature of other head of governments were also seen. Among them was former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
Although the shot lasted just a mere few seconds, screen grabs of Mahathir's signature from The Crown have gone viral, with Malaysians feeling a small tie to the series.
Mahathir, who first served as prime minister between 1981 and 2003, often spoke out against South Africa's apartheid policies, where people were segregated on the grounds of their race.
The Crown, a Golden Globe-winning series, is a fictionalised depiction of the real-life British royal family.
