Queen Elizabeth’s informal Olympic desire

OHMYGOSSIP — Queen Elizabeth took part in the opening ceremony of last year’s London 2012 Olympics because it was informal and a change of pace from her Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth agreed to the Olympics opening ceremony because it was informal.

The British monarch – who appeared in a humorous skit with James Bond actor Daniel Craig during the London 2012 Olympics last year – took part in the proceedings because it was a change of pace from the more formal Diamond Jubilee celebrations, according to opening ceremony producer Danny Boyle.

He told the Radio Times: “She knew the jubilee, obviously in the same year, was gonna be very formal. And you have an instinct when you perform in public. You just have instincts. And I’m sure that was part of the instinct.’Let’s change it, make it different.’

“I think she also must have known, because I was involved, that they were going to make it like a People’s Games… so there was a chance to take a risk with it.”

The film director also revealed that the queen and her staff enjoyed a “day out with a movie star” and had their pictures taken with the hunky actor.

He added: “She wanted her staff to have a day out with a movie star. And so we did. Daniel Craig came and he’s a movie star! He’s James Bond! Everybody can get their picture taken.”

Asked if the queen had her picture taken with Daniel, he said: “Absolutely! Yeah. But she was very, very keen and insistent that her staff did as well. I liked that about her very much. You thought, ‘Yeah, that’s decent, looking after them like that.’ And we had a lovely afternoon filming with the two of them.”
