Her Majesty's Secret Service

Forget the fireworks and the army of Mary Poppins and the athletes from all over the world. My favourite moment of the Olympic opening ceremony was the pairing of James Bond with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The short film, Happy & Glorious, that showed 007 arriving at Buckingham Palace to escort the Queen to the games was great fun. Bond looked dashing, the Queen actually said the words "good evening Mr. Bond," and there were corgis. It doesn't get much better than that. Now, let the games begin!
