The endlessly brilliant Gillian Anderson has delighted followers on Instagram with another hilarious The Crown behind the scenes moment.

Dressed in her full Margaret Thatcher costume, Gillian took advantage of a free moment on set to have a cheeky sit down on the Queen's throne chair, stretching out over the red and gold throne with her feet up on Prince Phillip's. We know they aren't the real ones but it still feels so naughty!

The actress playfully captioned the snap:"Just trying it out."

The post wracked up over 200,000 likes in under 24 hours and the comments are almost as hilarious as the photo.

One fan wrote: "You’re sitting like Gillian but your face says Thatcher."

While another joked: "I think that’s how HRH sits on it when no one's looking."

Gillian looks quite spectacular lounging on the Royal seat, with one follower writing: "The only chair that you should be sitting in."

We couldn't agree more.

And it's not the first The Crown BTS Gillian has blessed us with.

We're still watching and re-watching this amazing cast sing along from the Ibble Dibble scene.

Keep them coming Gillian.
