#7 She was quite a film enthusiast

The sovereign was actually a film enthusiast, and back in 2012, she appeared as a cameo in the short opening film for the London Olympics, alongside James Bond, played by actor Daniel Craig. Apparently, the director of the skit has written to the queen in order to get permission to use her likeness in the short movie, only to be stunned by her reply.

The queen wanted to both appear in the clip and also have a speaking role! Instead of being able to use someone who looks like her, the director actually managed to cast the royal, even if it was for a little while!

The other palace actors who also made their presence known were some of the Queen’s corgis, who made their way into the shot as well.

  1. I probably know more about the Late Queen than most, as we were cousins, altho not close ones, through my maternal grandmother’s family, going back to the Battle of Culloden, when Prince Charles of that era was going to be King of England and there were those who did not want this to happen. I had another cousin, a few times removed on my Grandmother’s side who was from the Isle of Skye, where my Great-Great grandfather was born. She was called Flora MacDonald and she helped Prince Charles escape to the Isle of Skye in a boat. The rest is all part of history. I liked this article and will be making a copy of it. I also am interested in getting a copy of her biography. When I look at a recent photo of hers on a magazine, I noticed the resemblance to my Maternal Grandmother. May the Queen rest in peace!!!
