THE Crown’s Princess Margaret star Vanessa Kirby was left mortified after an interview was thrown into chaos by a tech fail – breaking the show’s ‘one rule’.
Vanessa Kirby suffered a major tech failure during a live interview on The One Show last night
Appearing via video link, Vanessa – who played Princess Margaret on the first two seasons of the hit Netflix show – was asked for her opinion on its fourth season.
But when she tried to respond, Vanessa was horrified to realise she had committed the cardinal sin of video chats and had left herself on mute.
When she was finally able to be heard in the studio, she said as she covered her mouth: “Oh my god!That’s rule number one, isn’t it? Unmute yourself.
“That’s typical of me. I’m so bad with technology.”

Regaining her composure, Vanessa said she had been watching the fourth season of The Crown with her parents.
She said: “I have been watching the new series with my mum and dad.
“But now lockdown’s happened, we have three episodes left, so I have to wait until I’ll be able to see them in how ever many months’ time and finish it off.
“I’m midway through the Charles and Diana story.”
