I just admit, quite candidly, that my monocle fell into my glass of sherry.

A bit shocking I do say.

Actually, subby, the Queen spent her Silver Jubilee listening to the Sex Pistols blasting "God Save the Queen" as they rolled down the Thames on a boat.

maybe she was tired.
jumping from a helicopter and then having to quickly get changed and get to her seat is not easy.

Not to mention the months of prep wor.

She looked constipated and pissed off.
Like she wanted to know how much bloody longer she was going to have to sit there.

Could've been more believable. Why just her ankles getting into the chopper? Why not a body double for that. Then the double jumps into a target(but it's a room that will hide you) and out walks the queen, who's been hiding there.

I suspect they were already pushing the limit of what she was willing to do even with the short bit filmed in the palace. Most of the actual power of the monarchy is gone, they've really only have prestige left. It wouldn't do for the institution to become part of humorous pop culture.

CTV had it all, and in real time, mostly STFU style, and nearly ad-free. Try ctv.ca.

Her Majesty body double parachuted down with Bond and it's her Diamond Jubilee not silver subby! The only reason I can think the mods greenlighted this is so every English man on Fark can laugh at you.

No. She can't appoint anybody, but there is a polite bit of fluff that the Queen asks whoever won the election if they will be Prime Minister, but that is the only person she can ask. It's not like if she doesn't like the person she can veto it or anything.

I've heard The Monarch can have the Prime Minister removed via 'Royal Command'. Is that true?

The video may have surprised anybody who was expecting a mini-007 film because it treated James Bond as a fantasy figure come to life (like the Churchill statue) rather than attempting to credibly dramatize the notion that the Queen has summoned her best MI6 agent to get her to the stadium. Abandoning any pretense that Bond is a real secret agent, the Brazilian schoolchildren and the people in London in the video were delighted to see him as the first of many beloved characters arriving at the ceremony.

Daniel Craig, known for playing Bond seriously, did a remarkable job staying in character in this situation. You see his mind focusing on the one thread of verisimilitude, that of course Bond would serve the Queen. "Good evening, Mr. Bond" from the mouth of Queen Elizabeth II is the absolute apex of the 007 franchise under any circumstances.

From what I've read, she still has the ability to sack parliment and call a fresh election. But unless the election led to a big shake up, I expect the first act of the new parliment would be to depose her.
