Remember when James Bond & HRH The Queen jumped from a helicopter? Don’t see that every day #OpeningCeremony. The Queen tonight became a Bond girl as she made her debut acting role at the Olympics opening ceremony.
We love you
In a scene filmed in advance and screened for the first time, Bond actor Daniel Craig arrives at Buckingham Palace in a dinner jacket, striding past the corgis towards the royal study.
“Good evening Mr Bond,” says the Queen, before they leave together, apparently heading towards the Olympic Stadium in a helicopter.
Back in real time, to peels of laughter and delight from the crowd, “the Queen” followed by “Bond”, parachuted from a helicopter towards the arena.
