It is alleged that Queen Elizabeth II (95) kept her famous performance at the 2012 Olympic Games opening ceremony in London top secret. Even her closest relatives knew nothing of her. The Queen has stipulated her appearance with James Bond star Daniel Craig, 54, to be a surprise to the rest of the royal family, as it has now been revealed. It appears that David Cameron’s (55) government at the time has not been installed.
On the 10th anniversary of the London Olympics, BBC 4 has revealed some secrets, including the Queen’s private non-disclosure clause, on Reunion, according to the Daily Mail. Sam Hunter, who helped produce the ceremony, said on the show, “The Queen never told her family that she was doing this. That was one of the conditions of her agreement to be there.” He says you can even see the stunning faces of the family members at the opening ceremony when the Queen arrives and takes her place.
Millions in front of the TV
A skit, watched by over a billion TV viewers worldwide, was staged before the Queen’s arrival at the Olympic Stadium. Viewers saw Craig’s 007 arrive at Buckingham Palace and was greeted by the Queen with the words, “Good evening, Mr. Bond.”
In the final scene of the video, two daredevils dressed as the Queen and Bond parachute into the stadium from a helicopter. Minutes later, the real queen arrived at her seat in the stadium dressed in an acrobatic costume.
Daniel Craig, who has met the King in person several times, recently spoke about the 95-year-old’s sense of humor during a guest appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” Craig said Queen Elizabeth II was “very funny” and “always wanted to make fun of her”. “She always wants to make fun of me.”
