A young Princess Margaret is played by Kirby in the Netflix series and she told Graham Norton how she discovered the actual Queen’s opinion of the show.
Appearing on the TV presenter’s show she told the audience that a friend of hers overheard a princess say the monarch ‘likes’ the show at a recent party.
She said, “A friend of mine was at a party where he didn’t know anyone so sidled up to a group who were discussing the show.”
“One woman said, ‘My granny kind of likes it’. It turns out it was one of the princesses – The Queen’s granddaughter. It’s quite a reliable source – ish – so I am sure she is a fan!”
