Now the Queen and James Bond have jumped out of a helicopter.

Not the real Queen Elizabeth II in the video clip, but the real Daniel Craig (pretty sure!).

Weird!

2. Actually, it IS the real Queen Elizabeth II. I was wrong.

"Movie magic was responsible for the death-defying jump — both Bond actor Daniel Craig and the 86-year-old monarch were portrayed by stunt doubles for the live shot, of course. But that was indeed Queen Elizabeth sitting in her quarters, welcoming James Bond and accepting his invitation to the Olympics in Danny Boyle’s three-minute film.

It was believed to be the Queen’s first ever appearance in a movie. Boyle and his crew were given unprecedented access to her quarters for the one-day shoot in April."

5. That bit ruled

The Olympics are still a waste of money, but fair play to Danny Boyle for doing a very British, and in places quite subversive opening ceremony.

6. I saw that last night and

laughed like hell.

I knew it wasn't the real Queen, but still it was a hoot.
